Gi_Jo_Nathan Yeah it's definitely possible to have an exhaust that's only loud when you want it to be.

notman Finding the necessary parts to restore the exhaust is easy enough.

Part 5230A, the first muffler, seems to be about $190 via the big parts stores. Going to consider putting this back on the car.

I had a I/H/E on my 08 SI, it just purred at any speed. No boominess or rasp. All you guys talking about sounding like a civic. I wish this car sounded that good.
Thank you for replying. I was beginning to think I'm crazy.

Maybe all cat-backs on tiny 4-bangers are like this, but I'm not loving the amount of bassy hum from this unit. Around town, it's mostly good. Idle sounds nice too.

It's a different story at highway speeds. It's not really droning, per se, but when I'm on the gas at ~2-3k rpm, the bass fills the cabin anytime I apply the gas, even modestly. Part of the problem is that this engine has such little power that it's really struggling to increase speed once it's above 50mph or so. I've checked the clamp torque and listened for leaks, and it doesn't appear that anything is wrong.

Based on the noise, I'd say it's mostly the first muffler in the tunnel that's making the unpleasant tone. Anyone know if I can order that Ford part alone? I'd effectively be going backwards to an axle-back system, but at least I'd fix the noise.

Had to ditch my RS open airbox cover because it had terrible synergy with the 15072 unit. The boominess they both bring to the table was just too much to have happening all at once.

Not sure what's up. I have the Magnaflow catback with Steeda intake and there is no forward muffler. Just the cat. I also have Tom's Tune. Plenty of power and quick response up to 80 MPH. Sounds good. Runs good. No excessive drone or bass. I'm old and sounds good to me. Most the younger guys on here want it louder. Magnaflow sounds pretty sweet to me.

Yeah, I just cleaned it out thoroughly. I got this car in the beginning of August this year with around 51,000kms on it, so it could've been from when the previous owner had it.
