Muffler delete question

So I see allot of people doing muffler deletes. I really want more sound out of my 5.0 but trying to keep the price down. I'm worried about the loose of back pressure. I noticed they sell muffler delete kits, so I assume it can't be too bad for the car. Any advice? I just don't want to ruin my warranty, or mess up my power.

IMO not bad some people won't like it. I can talk on the phone and everyone can hear me.

You get what you pay for. I think muffler deletes sound like crap. There's no sound control of any kind so it's blatting, droning, vibe the rear glass irritation. I guess I've outgrown this kind of stuff. I don't mind a good, controlled loud but, not the explosion of loud like you get when you get on it with deletes on.

That said, you won't harm anything but your eardrums and your relations with your neighbours from putting them on.

^LOL

Op, muffler deletes sounds great and its a cheap mod. But then again everyone has there on opinion. Everyone that hears my car thinks it sounds amazing and asks what brand of mufflers I went with. Drone is minimal and its not very loud.

Hey,

As long as you keep some sort of catalytic converter on the car, you will be fine with muffler deletes. Any type of cat will keep the back pressure high enough to the point where the engine can scavenge properly.

Everyone will have different opinions on the tone these systems produce, but for the most part I personally like the sound they make. It will be raspier than any system with a muffler, but it is still a V8 with a deep rumble compared to most cars on the road today.

I hope this information helps, and if you have any questions, feel free to get back in touch. Good luck!

-Dan

I have heard back and forth about back pressure. I am running stock headers, Pype off road H pipe, stock pipes (with the resonators) back to the Pype Bomb muffler deletes. You dont think this hinders performance do you?

And for anyone curious I still not 100% on what drone is but pretty sure it is the constant humming type noise. If that is the case I do get this when first warming up and cruising hwy at about 80mph but pretty good other than that.

My Roush mufflers would be a perfect start for your car.

Hey,

It is hard to know for sure if your back pressure is sufficient, but if I had to guess, I imagine it is fine. There is some constriction by just having the stock manifolds in place, and given you have the stock resonators on the car that is another point of disrupted air flow.

I would not be too concerned, particularly if the car is tuned for the mods you have, you will be perfectly fine.

I hope this information helps, if you have any further questions let me know!

Ok guys I was really worried about drone, so I went to a local muffler shop and had a custom set up installed. 3 inch from the h pipe back to 2 flowmaster muffler to stock tips. Removed resonators. I love the sound. No rasp and very minimal drone on the highway. I couldn't be happier.

You really won't get any drone till the cats are out.

My apologies Compstall, I missed your message the other day. I have sent you a PM and once I have your information, I will get it over to Bama, have them take a look at it, and have them give you a call to get to the bottom of it. Once again I apologize for the delay and will see this is resolved in a timely manner.

Compstall,

I got your information, and forwarded it and the description of your problem you sent me, to a Bama supervisor. They will look into this, and give you a call on your cell phone.

I am confident that they will be able to figure it out and get you a properly functioning tune in no time.

If you need anything else from myself, feel free to get back in touch. Thanks again.

-Dan

Muffler delete question

If you replace the pipe from the axel back with 3" piping and an open 4" tip you essentially have the Magnaflow Comp Axel Back system. I did the muffler delete for about 6 months just till I had enough money for header back. You won't see an increase in performance but it will sound pretty decent 👍 I used to drone at 2K but nothing ear bleeding.

look into the BBK VARITUNE mufflers.... they can adjust to be a straight pipe, or you can turn the screw and have it act as a normal muffler. That's the direction I think I am going.
