Pypes axle back too loud

So I just put a set of Pypes-Pype Bombs on my 2014 and I find they're actually a little too loud, and the fit sucks. does anyone have any recommendations for a better alternative?

There are many different aftermarket axelbacks for our cars. YouTube is your friend here.

If you can, give them a week or 2. All my exhaust set ups sounded too loud at first too but the sound calm down after a while.

But that won't fix the fit issue the OP also mentions.

Pypes are notorious for having fitment issues.

Take them to an exhaust shop and have them welded in place to fix the fitment issues.. mine aren't centered in the cutouts either and it bothers me but i can deal with it. As for the noise, put at least 100 miles on them if you havent already and they will quiet down. I also put shorty headers on mine and it made it a tad bit less loud but made it deeper at the same time.

The figment bugs me because they are pushing up against the bumper, how much do you think it would to get it aligned?

You need to loosen up the mid pipe (If you haven't done that already) so it won't rub.

If you've done that and the left side is still rubbing you'll need to tweak it a bit. It rubbed on mine for a while (ANNOYING) until I took it all apart then put it back together knowing it would slide to the left.

The right side had a problem with vibration since the hanger is so much closer to the little L bend in the rod that it vibrates and makes a metal-on-metal sound...basically terrible...but some rubber tube fixed that up.

These are definitely a project but you can make them sound pretty damn good.

Sounds likes it not worth the cheap price. Why wouldn't you just get muffler deletes at an exhaust shop done, essentially what the Pypes is.

I fixed the fitment issue pretty easily. Just loosened the Pype bombs enough to adjust them, folded a towel two or three times and tucked it between the Pypes and the bumper, this held it center, then retightened the Pype bombs. Still center to this day.

I had them in all summer I love the sound and the drone and loudness reduces a tiny bit but still too much drone at times. Ill probly go borla when I unstore my car in spring.

This is where I have a problem. I may bite the bullet and pay more to have a muffler shop correct a fitment issue, but if they still don't look right, especially in the area of where the tips exit the back, then I would go no further. There are so many other manufacturers of axle back exhaust systems out there. Why should any of us have to settle for poor fitment? Why hasn't this manufacturer stepped up and corrected the problem?

Well said, as they (pypes) must be aware of the poor fitment issues but still do nothing to correct it. It has been well documented on this forum alone that they are probably the worse axelback for fitment problems. Customers sholdnt have to just except it and have to have them fixed.

Other companies are double the price. That could be the reason.

I suggest waiting a while. When I put my Bassani's on, around 2500-3000RPM the interior resonance reached a pitch that felt like it was going to make my head explode. I remember driving the girlfriend around that day on a 30 minute trip and it gave her a head ache. BUT, I gave it 1000 miles and it doesn't make that sound at all anymore. Much better.

And if at the end of your two weeks you decide that they Pypes are still too obnoxious, the Bassani's are a very good $560 option on AmericanMuscle. A couple hundred more expensive than the Pypes, but hundreds of dollars less than the Borla ATAK (which would have been my first choice if it weren't pushing $800). Quality is great. The welds are solid and the steel is nice and polished out of the box. Fitment has no issues. The Bassani's (as well as almost all axle-backs) are much smaller and substantially lighter than the gargantuan mufflers that come from the factory. Plus the 4" tips are bad ***.
