Muffler delete, an honest review.

Let me start by saying I did this all completely for free so for me if it did not sound right I could undo it at anytime and you can't beat free! The process isn't exactly easy depending on the tool you use, I used a sawzall. The sound is very beefy and not loud, but noticeable. The drone is... well somewhat annoying, however this can be worked around if you just keep the car under 2k a.k.a. fixing your lead foot. I can say that if all you are looking for is sound, go for it. I am only 17 so take what you will.

Hope this helps some people who are on the fence and answers some questions!

I used tools in my garage, sawzall and a welder. And for some reason I found some exhaust piping in my garage which was the right size so it was free for me!

Taking shop class in high school goes a long way!

They were just laying around in my garage but napa, oreilly and like places have them for decent prices. If you want to go really cheap, my friend found some exhaust piping at the wreckers for about $5. Also what you use depends on the price, stainless costs more I believe. Not sure what mine is but ill let you know when I get a chance.
