Ever consider that your headaches were cause by the 1000 other cars dumping exhaust out of their tail pipes in traffic? Just sayin'

Ran a muffler delete pipe on my 1996, actually improved performance. Dealer told me before I did it that I could delete either the cat of muffler and still have adequate backpressure. Just couldn't do both. The sound in the cab was not bad, but it would rattle windows and set off car alarms.

well, Ive had some massive subs before, so rattling windows and setting off car alarms is something I'm used to! haha

I'm going to try drilling holes, then if i cant find a sound that I like ill just stick a pipe in there instead, If for some reason that doesn't work ill just buy a new muffler.

I do have one more question for all you though:

Lets say I do buy a new muffler, Is there something I should get more specifically that will do its job buy itself, but is also compatible with future upgrades with the exhaust? Like I don't know if that would mean bigger entrance and exit holes or stuff like that. I just don't want to have to pitch this muffler if I decide to upgrade further later on.

P.S. The sound will be less in h=the cab with a delete pipe hooked to existing tailpipe than drilling holes in muffler as sound will exit outside the vehicle than under.

My muffler has been attached to al different pipes with me getting more and cutting off pipes then welding them back on a week later. On size of inlets and outlets.. You gotta have the proper size, there may some adapters that all you to change it though. And if you want load.. Get a super 10.. My super 44 is loud as hell, but the super 10's sopose to be even louder.

It's one of the most peaceful ways to exit, actually.

Just saying....

A old trick of drilling a 3/16 hole in the lowest point in the muffler lets the condensation out and the muffler lasted longer. off subject I know.

WOOOO GOT IT STARTED

yeah.. I only got it started though... All my bigger drill bits are way to dull and the only small enough one to make pilot holes I could find in the toolbox in my bed broke... Sooo looks like ill be finishing the rest at my fire station tomorrow!

I managed to get one fully done at the tail end of the muffler, I think its around 1/4 in. maybe. Its not too big, but its not small either. And then one little tiny pilot hole.

My friend and I can hear a difference. Its not louder, but definitely has a different tone. We were totally surprised how one hole can change the sound.
