Does anyone know what would happen if I were to remove my mufflers? I know it would sound louder but what are the pros and cons?
If u do muffler deletes u will lose back pressure and end up actually losing HP while gaining a super loud aggressive exhaust tone. Get a Axlebacks that gives u the tone u want while being street legal and keeping the back pressure I would recommend any of the three types of Borla's or Roush ones. I personally have BBK Full length headers and xpipe with high flow cats, GT resonators and Roush Axlebacks an my car is better sounding than most V8's with after markets exhaustsGio2013 said:Does anyone know what would happen if I were to remove my mufflers?

I pulled my cats off for a day and would agree with this 100%. The exhaust note sounds MEAN while you are still and it sounds pretty good (still very very loud) when you accelerate slowly the second you give it some gas you get that dreaded rasp and ping sound. I would stick with axel back's as suggested, the magniflows are popular as are the roush ones. Im sure it depends on where you live but I can get a Roush axel back installed at my dealer for $600 or $700 with a lifetime warranty. If your in Cali where you need to meet emissions, axel back is your best bet for sure.I think deletes sound terrible. It's too raspy. But my personal preference is more of a deep subdued note.
I have cats right now will be deleting them soon... My 0-60 is better and I didnt lose top end. I ran straight pipes on my Mach1 and raptor.Charlie_santos said:Are you sure about that? R u running with catts and then straight pipe? Cuz with no mufflers you lose back pressure and lose HP
And had zero problems with losing hpMustang32Bill said:I have cats right now will be deleting them soon... My 0-60 is better and I didnt lose top end. I ran straight pipes on my Mach1 and raptor.
