Re: custom pipe for muffler

depending on what size you go with, how its bent and to what muffler. it could free up a couple horsepower.

Re: custom pipe for muffler

i just got a magnaflow muffler, and im deciding to cut off the stock one and weld on the magnaflow directly onto the stock.

Would the custom pipe help in sound in anyway?

Also, how do you think it would sound with the magnaflow muffler, my car is bone stock. Low and deep tone, or loud and raspy :X

Low and deep toned. and if nothing else atleast get new piping done for the axle back. that way you dont have to cut anything. and you can always easily go back to stock if you end up not liking the new

If i read this correctly you are just going to cut the stock exhaust off and weld the magnaflow on?

haha dont be. exhaust can always be changed. its too easy. and you went with a traditional style muffler, so you should be nice a quiet

every set up is different, gonna sound different. even the same exhaust on two of the same style cars(say vtec prelude) are both going to sound slightly different.

Re: custom pipe for muffler

how do i know what kind to buy? is there a specific one to make it less noisy. is it the bigger the resonator the more noise it would cancel out?
