2.5" Straight Pipe!

Just wondering what you guys think of the sound! Took out both resinators and muffler and put 2.5" stainless steel straight pipe all the way back with a little rectangle tip!

You might as well rip out the sound system and save some weight.

To be more specific it sounds like a Civic without a muffler.

In the words of Morgan Proctor Bureaucrat Grade 19, dirty boy, dirty dirty....



It does sound quite deep and mean, but it also likely drones something awful unfortunately.

I like it statically, but I'm not sure I could live with the drone after my last car for 44000+ miles.

When you revved the first time my wife looked at me and said "was that your butt...?"

I would love to make my car as obnoxious as that but it's the wife's DD
