Muffler question

Sorry if this has been discussed elsewhere, but I'm looking to make my prelude sound louder (of course not ricey but I want it loud). at this point I'm not looking to get the whole catback system, that'll be a future change, but can I get away with putting an aftermarket muffler on the stock piping and get good results? also any thoughts on a glasspack? thanks!

Re: Muffler question

No on the glasspack.


And I don't suggest wasting money on a muffler that will require a shop with labor. Save for a catback.

Re: Muffler question

You could do a muffler delete, resonator delete, or both. Just check some vids out on youtube. There are a few different simple modifications that can cost under 100$ and make your car sound souder and more aggresive. On my TL I did a rear muffler delete (Two mufflers instead of just 1) Also from the cut off I had the piping adapted going from a 1.75" pipe to a 2.25" pipe on both sides as well as bought new tips costing 100 each tip and my total was just over 300$ at a bit more pricy muffler shop. So, as long as youre keeping it simple (Bearing in mind i spent over 200$ on my tips alone) You can get a nice sound that wont necessarily be ricy for arround 100$. You can do a bit more, and get a tip that you like thats a bit larger to expand the sound. Just dont be like most kids and get a 5" tip on your 4 banger. Obviously its not going to throw the sound in a good way. Put a Cold Air Intake, get the cool suction sound and just straight pipe it. Youll get a nice sound and it wont sound like buddys civic :)

Re: Muffler question

I did a n1 2.5 catback with resonator delete to a dual 3in ghetto ebay muffler lol, sounds soo nice with no raspy noise. I lucked out with my Frankenstein exhaust.

Re: Muffler question

Yeah dude just roll with a cheap straight pupe and muff. Worst case scenario is youre out of pocket 100 bucks and your car probably sounds more ricy but better than stock :P I think that if you get a bigger resonator i.e if you straight pipe it and go from say a 1.75 to a 2.5 inch your going to get a more raspy sound which, sad to say on a 4 cylinder makes it sound like a good running lawn mower. However if you get a new smaller resonator or make a smaller pipe where your resonator normally would be, and then go with a bigger exhaust I believe you will get a more clean louder sound. Trial and error. Best thing to do is look up other people mistakes and try your best not to make them :)
