That is what i wanted originally, but after taking off the muffler i like the sound. It only gets noisy at WOT and when normal driving you almost cant hear it. I will post a vid when I have time.

Sure, the best muffler to not make a louder sound is... dun dun dun.. *your stock muffler! So if you want to add a tip, just do that. If you want to increase power try removing the first muffler and replace it with a straight pipe, or a straight through muffler and it will probably increase power/ make a slight sound difference. The main muffler at your rear is the one that creates the most noise dampening out of all 3 on the car.


I'm planning on replacing my first muffler with a straight pipe, but I'm waiting for my plates. I want to get a better mpg baseline and break the engine in more before I mod it.

I had a cutoff like that on my S10 Blazer... it works well to blow everything out of the way, and gives more volume

Looks good Booberry. Unfortunately here in Pennsyltucky we have to have the exhaust exit from the body of the vehicle or cab of the truck to pass safety for state inspection.

I will have to change it when I go to smog it. But by then I might put pipe in the back or put the stock muffler back on and chop the tip off of that.

Thanks for the post, all the pics, advice, & instructions. Your dual tip mod looks great, and is very affordable in my book. I agree there's no reason to not do something like this when a vehicle is new.........so you can enjoy it for the longest period.

I'm due home from Iraq in early November, will pick up my new '12 Candy Blue SE Sport at the dealers, and start on it. I've only got a month before I head back, so simple mods like yours will fit my timeline to a T.

PS: Your pics make me glad I went with the Candy Blue!
