Turn downs

I have read that turn downs for dumped exhaust will cause less vibrations, less interior drone, and louder outside of the car; is this true? Also, where is somewhere I can find them cheap because $25+ is too much just for some turn downs. OR is there an alternative or something cheap I could use instead?

You can cut all the piping off behind your muffler and put some 90 degree turn down tips. I dumped my flows and it was really droney really bad in low rpms. And not as loud. I also dumped my slp and they weren't as loud and it was with full piping.

it will still drone. Since the exhaust is leaving right below you.Honostly IMO I think the only cars that should run dumps are the old muscle cars. I've had it on my 2v and the inside noise is silly compared to the outside. It's mad loud inside and not loud at all on the outside*

You'll want it angled down as much as possible. It's not a bad idea lots of people do it.

you can buy turndowns at Advance for like $7 a piece and they are bolt on...i'd reccomend either welding or using good clamps instead. so you're still looking at $20 for two turn downs with clamps....however the exhaust shop i go to only charges $5 a tip to make a turn down since it's just a bent piece of exhaust tubing cut at an angle.

i wouldn't use a solid rod...too much vibration issues at least from what i've used...go to any autoparts store and buy a universal hanger for like $3. they have a rubber piece in there that helps reduce vibration.

Dumps will cause drinks to white cap. It will also make your car the dirtiest vehicle in a gravel parking lot

I would stick with a full exhaust set up, it's louder and you don't have to worry about dirty flying up under your car.

I want to hear it more in the car and plus my friend is doing it for free, he doesn't have a machine to run it out the back or anything. I'll run dumps till I get tired of it then go pay to get it ran.
