The type of straight pipe I want to have fabricated would be a simple bolt on. That way you could exchange the stock muffler and the straight pipe in about 5-10 minutes.

Do they make universal connectors that a muffler shop would have so they did not need to cut the muffler?

Yes a complete bolt on straight pipe with the flange would be a great solution. Just unbolt your existing muffler, put in the garage or basement. Install the straight pipe with flange and reverse when wanting on little quiet :^)

If I had the power I'd ban each and everyone of you running without a muffler. :P

This thread can't contain much more rice, it's already at critical levels...

All I have to say for the 'Rice' comment... Try it, it doesn't sound 'Rice'. It it much deeper than a fart can on the back of someones car

ORLY?!?! so it is alright that the car puts out 125db and makes less then 100 hp. I can see a car being loud if it has to be IE. 500 whp s13 but a 100 hp fit??? but to be loud just for the sake of being loud is just dumb.... rice is rice any way you serve it.

If you did not replace the muffler with a straight pipe and the gases were just exhausted there, would there be problems with that? would there be any damage to the components underneath, like heat problems, or everything getting covered in exhaust gases?

You know, I tried the whole, removing the muffler thing, and I even made a couple videos which are posted here. I didnt think it was that loud or ricey at all. No way is it anywhere near 100dB. Listen to the videos before commenting next time.

As for the 'rice' comment, I would much rather take the muffler off for a nice sound than pay places like aj-racing $600+ dollars for some JDM exhaust that adds no horsepower. You know what I think rice is? Adding Japanese emission stickers, Honda Jazz emblems, or filling your dashboard with weird anime dolls to a USDM car????

[quote=_alf]then you are just being obnoxious and NOT meeting emissions standards and being cheap. while STILL gaining no horsepower.




Point is, he didn't have to spend a lot of money for the sound. If you don't like it just leave him alone. Come on guys he just did a DIY mod and he's happy about it. Don't be a jerk.

you prove a good point about the price, so much for little gain is just terrible. but im just the type of person that if something is going to be done, it has to be done right.

plus, police man + finding out that your running open pipe = fines$$$

so in the end you just end up paying more than u needed to.

like id suggested to my cousin, an Apexi universal N1 canister with the assistance of a muffler shop to weld the axle back would be the cheapest alternative, about $200 - $300 bux.

Ditto!

Although i like the aftermarket exhausts this is just another opinion/alternative.
