Long story short, I used to drive a 2011 GT
with Roush axle backs and evidently either resonator delete OR some type of H pipe or x pipe. The reason I say that, is that is was LOUD! It was raspy, it droned and popped and gurgled but it just sounded sweet. Probably too loud but when it was annoying, I just babied it. I didn't know what setup it had exactly, I bought it used and assumed it was just that way from the ROUSH axle backs.
My 2014 now has Roush axle backs and resonators are still there. It sounds sweet but not insane like my last one. I'm considering a resonator delete with just a cheap solution of having straight pipes welded in there instead of the resonators....BUT
* I'm concerned that I may get failed at state inspection in December because of noise. I don't have the original factory mufflers to switch out prior to inspection.
Is there a ghetto device like silencers I could put on my Roush axle back tips to quiet it down temporarily just before inspection? Or any other cheap and quick way to calm the beast?
I'm even wondering if I can stuff a bunch of steel wool in there and fish it out with a coat hanger!
