Make engine noises while you are driving......

sorry man, couldn't resist. I guess a can on your exhaust would do this for you.

Re: how to make my 97 louder

Go to Tim Hortons (we don't want any low quality **** here)

buy a can of coffee (the bigger the better)

take the top off and cut off the bottom

cut off your muffler

weld the can in place (or tape works well)

voila

Oh oh I'm suprised no one mentioned those bolt on exhausts from auto zone, you can also get lights, stickers, body kits, and all your typical r.I.c.e accessories lol :)

yes sir ...

and your right... I DON'T hate anyone.. this was a little harsh and I apologize... but, but....

*sigh*

Why do young kids have to be so noisy whats the point? other than unwanted attention? It is better to have your exhaust tuned to your car, and this includes the sound of it too. I would bet 90% of the people with their ridiculous fart cans don't have ANY modifications to their engine to warrant this foolishness. (aka boosted)
I really really DESPISE that riced out ratty sound when some junior pulls up next to me to race, and I KNOW my car is still Faster! and Quieter! LOL!
I found my car to be more of an embarrassment than "Cool" when it was not muffled.

well now that we've all given our smartass answers

this is pretty much a good solution

if all you want is to be loud, most big stores that have an auto section should sell some cheap mufflers you could put on your car

if you want performance it's going to cost more though, a lot more then a couple hundred unfortunately

I however would not recommend with trying to be loud for the sake of being loud

it will piss off lots of people (including your neighbours) and people will be more likely to do mean things to your ride (my old lude which was stock aside from a cai got egged and paintballed by jealous dip****s... never could prove who, but I had some ideas... oddly enough no problems since they got a car... I guess they smartened up and realized they woudn't want anyone touching their ****) if it's loud then your just gonna have to worry about the jealous dip****s and the people that get woken up by the noise

It will atract a lot of attention from the cops, attention you really don't need

it will be annoying if you ever need to go for a long trip, want to go on a nice peaceful cruise or get stuck in stop and go traffic


short answer: Go to a big box store with an auto section, they should have what you want

just be prepared for a lot of unwanted attention, if you aren't worried about that, then best of luck to you

my neighbors call the cops often and ive had my car broken into, going on long drives up to 2-3 hours i get a headache......if you want loud just to have it, dont get it...

Why do young kids have to be so noisy whats the point? other than unwanted attention? It is better to have your exhaust tuned to your car, and this includes the sound of it too. I would bet 90% of the people with their ridiculous fart cans don't have ANY modifications to their engine to warrant this foolishness. (aka boosted)
I really really DESPISE that riced out ratty sound when some junior pulls up next to me to race, and I KNOW my car is still Faster! and Quieter! LOL!
I found my car to be more of an embarrassment than "Cool" when it was not muffled.
kids will be kids. just give them some good advice, let them ignore it, and find out for themselves the hard way.
