Jus an x pipe

My exhaust are welded to my mufflers. An I have blown baffles. I was wondering if I could jus take off the catback and leave the catless x pipe would that make the car sound bad? Bc I'm tired of hearing the rattling and I don't have enough money to save for a cutback.

Re: Jus an x pipe

Well yes, the car would sound like **** with just an offroad x-pipe...

It doesn't take too much to swap out mufflers, even if they're welded. Just have a shop chop out the old mufflers and weld in 2 chambered cherry bombs (cheapest muffler I can think of). Shouldn't be more than an hour's labor to cut and re-install the new ones.

Should only cost 150-200 to have a shop install the new mufflers. Your car would sound like **** with just the midpipe.

You would hate it ten times worse running just the midpipe than your current rattling.

Re: Jus an x pipe

I've had my running with just the mid pipe. Sounds like a stupid loud 1985 toyota corrola with rotting muffler. Sounds absolutly horrible. Don't take our word, go try it yourself...just try not to drive it where people will see you unless you've got a paper bag handy.
