Louder Sound Idea!!

hey guys, I've been watching lots of YouTube vids on exhaust and I forgot about muffler deleting, since I don't have the money for exhaust and won't have it for a while, would it be smart to cut my stock mufflers off for now till I get my pypes axle backs, or run it stock which I can't handle for too long, lol I have to have some kind of sound or something? help, thx, V6 POWER!!

I just went outside and looked at my stock muffler, and there's a bolt that holds the muffler and I'm guessing if I remove that then it's considered muffler delete, thus making the car louder. I think lol

I think your tailpipe would then be under your car which isn't ideal it would make it louder but you would essentially be pumping exhaust fumes righ t under your car. Carbon Monoxide risk? Idk. Never done it.

You can take your mufflers off. Mufflers don't have any relation to emissions. You will have a much louder exhaust and no tail pipes to be seen. If its only 1 bolt off, then it's only 1 bolt back on if you don't like it.

Hhmmmm, I tried to see if it was illegal in my state, Texas. I think it is, but not sure. I took apart my pipe that the clamp is holding (the muffler and main pipe) and I'm not sure if I tighten it right because my car sounds a little louder, like there's a little bit of sound coming from it. but will that effect the car in a negative way?

The Mufflers are the only thing holding the exhaust up, the only other place it is attached to the car is the exhaust Manifolds.

IMHO you will sacrifice low end torque. You need free flowing mufflers with the proper back pressure.

I've taken off my mufflers and let them hang till I had enough money to buy mufflers.

1. Yes they will rattle on your rear end. I used a hose clamp to lift it up to keep them from rattling.

2. No you won't lose power. I actually felt a gain in power from taken them off.

3. It's not illegal i live in Texas also.

And also yes it's cheaper and easier to go to a muffler shop and have something welded in. But it just looks nicer to have something you can take on and off.

I've lost about as much back pressure as possible, but when you step on it, you can tell the car is faster, significantly faster. O/r pipes ftw

You won't want to drive it without a tail pipe anyway. The exhaust will reverb off the ground and back into the cabin. You'll have a headache every time you drive the car.

The things on mustangs is that if you get caught its illegal. Like here in Alabama we just have to have a muffler of some sort. Hell, a paper towel roll with paper in it will suffice. Just to give you an idea.

I don't know if this would work! But maybe drill some holes in your mufflers to make them louder. Then if u don't like it reseal them with Jb weld. Or maybe this is a stupid idea!

Steeda Cai all the way. Most gains from any Cai for our motor. It's the only one with a larger intake tube, therefore making it a tuner required Cai.

I just had warranty work on my car with the tuner attached to it. Lol. They have the prove that the aftermarket part (ie tuner) caused the problem.

I don't have that good of luck with dealers! I've had my car in the shop a lot for small things so I'm gun shy about doing things to the motor! Auctually I usually end up fixing the problems lately!

If your set on doing this, buy some clamps and we'd on hangers, and piping. Experiment
And use jd weld unless you have an actual welder that you kno how to use

Please....no!

The Mustang is too nice of a vehicle for this type of shade tree engineering!

I pulled mine off within a month or two of buying my car. Pulling them off is not as easy as you think and it's a real pain to get the mufflers off the hangers. Use exhaust wrap to secure and pad the pipes under the car. It took some trial and error but I have been rattle free for months and months now. It won't throw any codes and your not going to smell any exhaust in the car. if you stick your head under the car you can barely smell it still. You still have cats so really the smell and emissions are still the same, just louder without a muffler

Unbolting the hangers is the easiest way to remove them

Do you have a sub woofer with a 1000 watt power amp? Car lowered?
