Louder does not equal better...if you took off your muffler it would sound like a piece of shit. And you would no doubt get pulled over in a heartbeat.

I dont think cops would like it, especially since you wouldnt have a muffler hanging on the back of your car, no muffler = illegal. :roll:

Yeah it would increase HP.

i know a guy who took off his muffler, and welded 3" pipe on there. (ghetto yeah, but he said he got the sound he wanted after trail and error a few times). first off, it did'nt sound all that bad, i'd rather hear his no muffler than a tip :grin: but if you cut off your muffler, be careful of high revs. something called "recarbondixotion"(sp). in other words, your exaust fumes will come back in your car, make u look/feel dumb in front of your friends/gf. at least go to an exaust shope and have em make you an extention. oh yeah, remeber, if your car has alot of miles on it, get a new cat, cuz your muffler may be holding back your stinky fumes from your old CAT.

Not worth it on a 4cyl engine... you will lose backpressure which helps create torque... you will net a loss in torque probably greater than the gain in Hp. If it were a V8 that wouldn't be a big deal, but you're already skimping on torque, so the act of removing the muffler would probably just slow you down off the line.

The hole back pressure thing is overated. In v-8 engines it would make more of a difference than it would in our little 4 cyl cars. If you have forced induction then it is a different story but not on NA small motor cars...

don't take off ur muffler. ur car will sound real terrible. its also not good for the engine because it lowers back pressure. when u let off the gas, ur car will sound like it is bubbling, which mine does with my exhaust, if u took ur muffler totally off, i bet ur car would backfire, and imagine how embarrassing that would be.....:razz:
