Rice or nice
 
[url]http://www.mufflermall.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=103&products_id=402[/url]

Going to try to put in a short resonator plus muffler with 2.5" tapered to 2.25" after resonator for really quiet, side exhaust.

That muffler will be pointing to the back right in front of my back right tire.

Going to keep cheap 14" resonator

mini 4" muffler after resonator.

I want this sucker QUIET. Just wanna see about the carbon fiber muffler :hmpf:

You that thing isn't actually made out of carbon fiber, so I would say rice.

TIP- the longer your muffler/resonator, the quieter it will be.

If you really want it quiet you need to get away from all straight though mufflers. A chamber muffler will be the key to killing the sound.

I think the Carbon Fiber is a rice. To do CF and the side exhausts is way over the top. Side exhausts can be cool though.

Well, no matter what it will look rice, and it will probably sound rice too. Get an actual muffler and a nice looking tip instead.

it ain't gonna be quiet. shortening up the system is going to make it LOUD. and, that CF muff looks just like the ones on ebay for like 15 bux. nothing is quieter than stock.

Re: Rice or nice
 
Thanks, guy. You saved me from being even more riced out than I already am. :no: However, these mufflers need to be SMALL, as they are going to be used where the exhaust piping used to be. Keep in mind, I'm stickin' with the side exit exhaust.

Edit: And it has to fit in my budget. I can afford one really good muffler (120ish), but the rest need to fit in the 40-60 catagory.

Double post. I'm going to get a 31" glasspack to keep tone down. If that doesn't help, I'll use sound-insulating material over the piping. As for the muffler, it'll be a 3A muffler with a side-directed tip. Thanks, guys.

If you get a good long glasspack you can go with a Moroso sprial-flow muffler (google it). I have an 18" resonator with the muffler going out the side. It's actually very quiet for a side exit exhaust and I have gotten quite a few good comments on the sound. It gets a little loud if you park, open the passenger door, and rev the engine up.

Re: Rice or nice
 
If you wnat to keep it down go with a small chamber muffler, then a straightthough. Do that under the car then pipe it out to the side and find a nice tip.

I doubt you will find a nice looking muffler that will fit under the side of your car without being small enough not to be crushed over the first speed bump.

TWELVE INCHES INSTALLED! Mine fits perfect under there, it is no bigger around than a resonator.

I think he is wanting something more shiney than that.

Oh YES, cuz lord knows everybody in the world is going to look underneath your car at the muffler! You can't even see my muffler unless you put your face on the pavement. Mostly you just see the end pipe coming out. BUY IT ALREADY! It's not expensive. I got mine for $51 shipped.

I don't think you understood me or him.

He wanted to set up a muffler under his car. Then a muffler at the end of his side exit exhaust. Nobody cares what the undercar mufflers look like, but he was wanting something spiffy at the end of the pipe that gets looked at. I don't think he will find too many good looking mufflers (that would look good on the end of the pipe) which would be small enough not to get ripped up in a hurry.

I was suggesting he do 2 mufflers under the car. A straight through and chamber and then just have pipe run to the side and finish it off with a tastefull tip. Doing the tip in flat black woudn't look bad either.

The spiral flow is not a chamber muffler either. It is a straight through with a few baffles, instead of fiberglass or stainless steel packing. It does look really cool and is at a great price. But, he was wanting to go quiet, and the only way you can get to there is with a chamber muffler. The SpiralFlow looks to be a great replacement for a glasspack for a resinator.

ALRIGHT, ALRIGHT. Don't argue over my tastes. :lol: I'll go with the stock muffler, chamber muffler underside, and spiral to the side. I can always add a tip to the end of that muffler.
