Basically i cut the muffler and resonator off and have it just dumped right after the bed...
so 3" factory pipe into a 3" turndown

question is, other than my cats falling off or me getting headers...
is there any way for me to get it louder?

ok so most recomendations are for a cut out. but i basically have what a cut out is going to do.
i just have the 2 pre cats, factory restricting y pipe and then a turn down before the rear axel.
hmmm

That's why I suggested putting it before the cat.

Just buy a couple of cut-outs and mount them right behind your headers(if you get some) and it will like running open headers and should be plenty loud enough for ya. :D I ran open longtube headers on my old 78 Camaro that had a 350 small block and it was very loud.

I was thinking the same. Loud is fun until you drive a 500mi trip like that at 75mph. Just something for the OP to consider, I busted the pipe off a minivan I drove (3.0l caravan) when I was 18 (accidental break, not intentional) and prompty got a 375$ noise and safety violation before I could even get to the shop :cheerl:

Headers with cutout or cutouts is gonna be loud as f**k. I have a cutout on my Y after the headers and before Cat. I drove it uncapped for a romp the other night. It was insanely loud.

i wish i knew what a cutout sounded like. I may just have to get my money back & buy a diff brand, even if it costs more.

SO when u open the cutout...its like Oh, sh%t!.......?

You're probably losing low end performance like crazy with your set up.

What about getting a PA system and just driving around playing static at full volume? That would be pretty loud and annoying.

Better yet, get some audio of a top fuel dragster and run that through a PA system. Can you imagine the looks sitting at a stoplight soundling like a top fuely at idle?
