    Default Dropping my mufflers

    I have a 94 and am still trying to decide if I should go with Electric Cutouts or another system. I was going to see if I could just drop my mufflers and drive around to see if I like what I hear. Is there an easy way to do so, or do I need to cut them off? I don't see where I could unbolt them, and would hate to hack up the stock system if I can avoid it.

    I really don't want to spend the $$ on a Corsa, and I'm afraid the muffler elims may be too loud, so thought if I just dropped the mufflers I could get a sense for how loud it could be!

    Thanks!!!!

    Same here! I think we have been through this! haha

    It unbolts from the cats only! The rest are exhaust hangers that hold it up! Let me know what you do!

    I have been debating for months now!

    If you remove the muff's without extending the tail pipes past the rear bumper you will get incredible resonance issues ie- it isn't a real representation of the sound you'll get with a correct muffler eliminator. I cut muff's off myself and slip fitted the elimiators in place to see if I would like sound, then had a shop weld them in place.

    Love them eliminators!

    Im glad it all worked out!

    How loud is it at idle and normal driving...How about under half throttle?

    Are you able to post a video on Vettetube or Youtube... I am interested in doing something for the exhaust but I dont know what is too loud and what doesnt sound good.

    Mines a daily driver so...

    Thanks!

    Around 2000 RPM's there is some resonance, but again, I don't drive her all that often, so it's not a big deal to me. I always have the top off too, so not sure if it would be louder with the top on and windows up? I was driving my friends new Lamborghini Gallardo yesterday and I gotta say mine sounds much meaner!
