Question Help me Soundproof my exhaust

Hi you

I was wondering is eny of you had sound proffed the exhaust

af normal driving speed 80 90 km/t i makes a lot of resonans.

i love the sound og my maskine but its annoying to listen to when you are just going for work and so on

NOW. does eny of you know if heatwrap would help a little? i thing the sound is comming from the bend just behind the drivers seat .

Eny other posible ways to make this better?

really hope that you have some ideas because i would hate to put the standart exhaust on my Euro st170 im running a Magnex now

Heat wrap *will not help* with sound. I've never heard of Magnex...also, are you running the stock catalytic converter? If you are running a straight pipe, that would be the main source of noise.

either way i want to do your car.

really you need to take out the rear seats and hatch carpet and put sound deadening material on the metal just all over the place.

Yes header/exhaust wrap may help. To illustrate it would be similar to throwing a thin blanket over a xylophone and hitting a note vs with out the blanket. The added material will slow the reverberation wave coming off the metal (exhaust in this case). Basically same concept as the noise inside a gutted car vs one with carpet.

Now, how much will the wrap help? I can't say. I'd image a little but possibly not enough.
Most in the US will add a 'resonator' if the exhaust tone is too buzzy. Generally helps, it effectively changes the tone of the standing wave in the exhaust, making the exhaust tone and resonate frequency of the pipe different, so the exhaust pipe will not buzz.

Not sure if that will make any sense to you so hopefully this link will help --> http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu...opecol.html#c2
(great site for learning)

Sounds like your car has had the lunchbox removed...it'll resonate a LOT inside the car around 2500 RPM without it....which is why mine is going back on!
