Well , I got neutered ... and am suprised (in a weird way)

Hey guys , I decided to spend $50 today and do a lunchbox delete. The rear muffler was removed ...

I hopped in and the startup got me excited , but ... after driving 10miles I am rather curious why taking the air filter lid off sounds much more "exhaust like" , and aggressive ?

I'm happy that huge muffler (I can't stand it) is gone , but while the car is louder then stock -- it's not what I expected as far as a muffler delete.

Now tomorrow I'll take the lid off and see the combo , anyone else here shocked at how taking the plastic filter cover off is "louder/more aggressive" then a muffler delete ???

S/N : I didn't get a tip , but had the straight pipe bent straight out , I think it looks much much better then the muffler / dead pipe.

I'll take pics tomorrow. Does anyone here run straight pipe / lidless ?
