Muffler delete

Has anyone done or heard a 2011~12 v6 with a muffler delete. I'm thinking about taking it to a muffler shop and having them take off the muffler and weld a pipe in its place. Any thoughts or ideas?

You don't have to but shop would have to cut the old ones off and I'm not to sure they would like that. Tips??? That's up to you.

Re: Muffler delete

I am putting on the Magnaflow Comp axle-backs, and those are essentially muffler deletes. I've heard a true muffler delete on YouTube but nothing in-person.

That's what I have and it's better than cutting it. I took mine off then just braced it to we're it won't hit the bar underneath sounds awesome but I lost power. Not a lot. But wen I got the aftermarket muffler "which is just bolt on" it gained it back.

You have Magnaflow Comps installed right now? Are they deafening?

At WOT they're loud and awesome. But cruising speed they're quiet.

Is that all that comes with them? Based on the instructions and what I see under the car, there is a reusable ball clamp, and there's no additional hardware provided by Magnaflow, correct?

Yup yup. Just rip off the clamps. And brackets are a pain but can be done with simple hand tools and a buddy.

Re: Muffler delete

I have BBK long tubes with the bbk offroad x pipe and magnaflow comp catbacks and it is insanely loud. I have a crazy drone in the car from lack of cats and it destroys peoples ears. This video doesn't even display how loud it gets. I love it though. It just gets annoying when I drive it from Louisiana to New York in one trip. Then you want to die. Video has to be turned up a lot. I recorded it low so you can barely even hear the car start.

Re: Muffler delete

I will need to check that vid out, but unfortunately no LT headers here in GA. They couldn't care less about your brakes, but you better not increase your "carbon footprint" lol

Be sure you guys save your stock mufflers. Like Ricostang said: the drone will make you wanna die on long trips. I had a muffler delete at one time and after awhile I decided to put the stock mufflers back on. Also is for some reason you decide you wanna trade your car in the dealer will deduct for that.

That's a good way to do it. Buying the x pipe forces you to buy the headers even if you decide you don't want them and you'll be glad in the end that you did. They're awesome. Would definitely recommend ceramics though. I have the stainless and they're nice, but give off a lot of heat. Especially when they're new. The axelbacks are just fine. The only reason I did the catbacks is because I had my driveshaft break and it ruined my stock pipes. Glad it didn't do it to these!

How did your DS break? Under normal driving conditions? On a dyno? That is crazy!

The dealer that I bought my 12 sixxer from said that when you delete the mufflers you lose torque, and its better to get a cold air and a tune THEN get the exhaust opened up

I think that's probably more perceived than anything else. Why would people put on long tube headers that delete the cats (more restrictive than mufflers) and see gains if back pressure were really an issue?

I haven't dyno'ed my car since putting the Magnaflow Comps on or REALLY opened it up, but I don't feel any loss so far. Maybe just a loss of hearing

There is a difference between torque and horsepower. Yeah I'm sure they found gains in horses, but have they done before and after time trials? Not trying to argue.... just playing devil's advocate!

Yeah, there is, but I don't know what sort of back pressure the mufflers were creating that was greater than the cats. Even the factory headers are more restrictive I would think.

Adding axle-backs doesn't even affect your tune; so, I doubt it makes a measurable impact on power or torque either way, and if anything, I would think it could help pull more air in which means more fuel which means more power and torque.
