Muffler delete

Would running a muffler delete be harmful for the 3.7 or beneficial?

You could just remove them so you can see what it sounds like. Then you can weld up some strait pipes and tips if you like it.
Here's a clip I dug up. I think it sounds good.

I was going to see what it sounded like. I was worried about carbon monoxide or whatever the stuff is that'll kill you. It's a cheap way to get a loud car.

So lower torque, that's what I've been reading. Sadly our v6 is going to suck more in the torque department

So...I went out there this morning before class, and I disconnected the clamp from the pipe to muffler. There are two, What seem to be mounts or rubber isolaters. One has a bolt. The other doesn't. Once the muffler was free it still didnt move whatsoever. My question is, did I miss anything?

There is a small tack weld that has to be broken off.......

Where? Outside or inside bracket. I thought about just pulling the hangers out of the rubber things.

I've been running a muffler delete for about 6 months now, I put straight pipes in its place just to make sure I didn't have to worry about CO leaking into the cabin while sitting in traffic. It sounds great if you can handle the volume and drone but it's caused me to drive slower solely because at FT every cop within 2 miles can hear me...

Does the CO leak bad or is it small. I'm thinking of keeping it a turndown style till I can get custom work for side exhaust. But that is the loudness and flow I want.

I'm going to see how it sounds without the mufflers first. I don't want to spend money on mags if they are too loud. Which this setup will give me an idea of what it'll sound like. Appreciate the offer. If I like it I'll hit you up on it.

Re: Muffler delete

Cool. Ya that is the best way. The mags actually tame it a bit and give it a little gurgle. Clips here.








my camera made it buzzfart more than it does. I loved the tone when I got out of the gas and when I was all in. Crusin' around - not so much... I personally didnt like it hence the reason for the sale. too loud for me. 10 years ago I would have liked it most likely... lol

I have no idea how much CO would leak I just decided the 50 bucks to get a local muffler shop to weld a straight pipe on was worth the risk, I'd suggest the same because worst case you would have just wasted 50 instead of a few hundred or carbon monoxide poisoning hah

UPDATE

After wrestling with the cool yet annoying rubber hangers, we finally freed the mufflers. A good 10-15 pounds a piece I might add. Opened up the garage door and lit her up.....holy piss it's so loud that if I don't get a ticket going to town I'll go deaf. But after all this work I'm sad to say that it is too loud, even for my teenage liking. Magnaflows streets are going to be my best bet.
