Straight Pipe vs Axel Back

I have a stock 13 gt and was looking to just go to a local shop and have a muffler delete done. Based on your personal knowledge and experience, which would be better for hp/tq gains, a muffler delete or an axel back?

I also plan on adding the steeda cold air shortly after with a tune.

0 gains from either, do a search. Muffler deletes are ferociously loud, as well. Better hope you like it if you cut up your stockers.

From what I read u gain on the high end but little to no gain on the low end. As for noise, although it does cause a little concern I don't mind it so much and have heard it on my buddy's car.

No gains, its gonna be really loud. The sound is gonna be so, so, not the best, but better than stock if you don't have the money. The longer the tips, the better the sound. I would just save my money and get a set of Roush AB, they sound good at half the price of others.

Gotta agree with tc x 4 and 5LHO. Super loud, not the greatest sound and absolutely zero gains.

Look for a cheap set of axle back or maybe even purchase actual muffler deletes instead of trying to reuse hacked up stock parts. I think pypes muffler deletes are under $300... Just be wary of quality

Seems pypes quality is hit or miss. Being a welder by trade, I'll say the headers and mid pipe I had were top quality, welds were perfect. The ABs on the other hand, sounded like something was loose on the inside.

I love my muffler deletes. Constantly get commented on how much people like them. To me they sound way better than most axel backs

I know a bunch of guys in a local car club that just removed their axle backs entirely and left the over axle pipes open and they sound pretty good considering that's all they did. It does look kinda weird with no exhaust pipes back there though.

You can take the stock stuff off, just take the clamps off and see if you like it. If you do takeout to the shop and have them fix you some straight pipe to the tips and re install... If you here some axel backs you like better after hearing your car with the clamps off then buy those..

Thanks guys. I think I will remove the muffler and see if I like the sound. I think the only thing I am worried about is all the tickets I will get. Lol.

To get a decent sound, you need at least a 10" tip. Taking off the mufflers will let you know what the volume will be.

He means in length. It's so the sound projects rear ward and has some sort of resonance.
