Default Intake Resonator Removed and Rearward Muffler Exhaust video

I have the big muffler swapped out for a straight pipe and the intake resonator removed. Its a 2006 Vue Redline. Looking to see what people think. I was thinking about having 2.5 custom exhaust run from the resonator after the y pipe back all straight no mufflers. Any thoughts?

A better video would be the experience from the inside. How loud is it in the cabin?

In terms of loudness its pretty good it certainly isn't quite the only complaint in terms of loudness I have is that it drones kinda bad. Between 50-65 mph locked in 5th it has a bit of obnoxous drone then it quites down after 65 really nicely. I am debating getting a 2.5 inch exhaust run from the resonator after the y pipe to the bumper just that I'm sure it would sound great but the drone might end up being unbearable. I usually only comute around 20 miles round trip whenever I go anywhere but I will be returning to further drive around 60 miles per day this coming summer so I will have to see about that. All my friends really like the sound though. One of my friends just did a full straight pipe set up on a 2011 gt 5.0 mustang which made me want to go louder with mine.

A lot of people say it sounds like a 350z or g35 when they have heard it on the road driving. I know someone that has a custom exhaust set up he built himself for a g35 from the cat back pieced together different pipes from different nissans with a muffler he picked out heard mine and was kinda mad/annoyed that he spent all the time and money and mine sounds just as good.

Love it man! Now I'm considering it for my ride as well. I think I'd take the opportunity to get duel exhaust outlets done at the same time.

Thanks for sharing!

Default Re: Intake Resonator Removed and Rearward Muffler Exhaust video

The stock piping is already 2.5", and all of the restriction comes from the cats & j-pipe. All 3 mufflers are straight-through design. If you mean to get rid of the drone, 2.5" exhaust exiting behind the passenger rear wheel (instead of driver rear wheel like stock) did seem to reduce mine a decent amount. I ran the same setup (suitcase removed) for a while with no complaints!

Default Re: Intake Resonator Removed and Rearward Muffler Exhaust video

Here's a video of mine with short ram intake 3" open headers from the block back dumped just behind the rear diff (no cats or mufflers):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HNcYRXWLHIA

Sorry for the crappy video, I know I have better ones with me driving somewhere. But if you want louder I can definitely feel this in my chest, and I've had lots of strangers on the street tell me it's way too loud. No one ever told me it was loud with the suitcase removed.
