Help, magnaflow muffler too loud.

So, I've been having my magnaflow muffler on for quite some time now and I think its time for me to quite it down. Its really quite loud, not ricey at all, really deep, but really loud at the same time.

Are there anyways for me to quite it down, I've heard people say resonators or a silencer. My whole exhaust is stock except for the magnaflow muffler " which I picked up for free". I remember when I had the shop weld on my muffler, and right when I heard the sound of it, I asked if I can put a resonator in, and they said I already have a stock resonator or something. So, are aftermarkets resonator better to quite it down?

I really need some way for it to quite down, help guys.

Re: Help, magnaflow muffler too loud.

if u only have one, u can try replacing it and maybe adding another. replacing the cat prolly even make exhaust a lil bigger. sometimes that will help. i'm hoping someon will chime in here and either agree with me or disagree hope this helps

Re: Help, magnaflow muffler too loud.

It would be easier to just put a stock muffler back on and get rid of the magnaflow.

Re: Help, magnaflow muffler too loud.

It's stock, just the muffler? How can it be too loud?

Re: Help, magnaflow muffler too loud.

Get a different muffler. I wouldn't waste money trying to figure out how much resignator to cut in and whatnot.
