Has anyone removed the muffler and just ran a straight pipe? I was wondering what that might sound like. The srt-4 does not have mufflers right? they sound so awesome stock. I know they wont sound anything alike but im ineterested in removing the muffler.

Only one way to find out. As to the SRT-4, they do exhale through a turbo and that provides a substantail muffling quality.

My guess is that a CSS without a muffler will sound horrible.

Heh yeah, I had a guy in what appeared to be about a 92 Sunbird try to race me the other day. He had his exhaust cut off right after the cat, no muffler. I could see it hanging down under the car.

I wouldn't describe the sound as "good". :)

But we're not talking about a 92 sunbird are we?

Nor are we talking about an LS1, which is the best sounding engine w/o an exhaust, period. IMHO, of course. JM2C.

Goofyguy had removed even just the resonator, and hated the sound. He described it as somehting like a stock honda with a 4 inch muffler. Loud, raspy, and annoying he called it. He put a resonator back on, 24 inches long, 3inch in/out. Now he says it sounds awesome.

No, were not. But a 4 pot without an exhaust... not a nice sound in general. :(

Isn't that the famous "muffler delete" mod that everyone's doing?

I like how mine sounds. Really throaty and pretty loud. For the price I paid to do it (zero), it was well worth the money =)

I made a thread a while back with some pics
