I just can't seem to quiet my magnaflow down, so instead of paying 70 bucks for a resonator I am thinking about just replacing the muffler. I am looking not to lose any power, but something that will muffle the sound a little better. Any suggestions that won't break the bank?? I also still want a single 4inch tip(I just think it looks perfect on this car)

I think its pretty raspy for stock piping. I am running 2.5 piping, so it would be extremely raspy with bigger piping. Thanks anyway.

Quieteset muffler that you can get that is free flowing is an Apexi WS2. I just ordered one for myself on the advice of many people on the forum. Heres some threads I started about the topic

You will see in either thread, that I thought about going with two differant mufflers ( Magnaflow and Vibrant) and everyone persuaded me to go with the Apexi WS2. Supposedly it is actually quieter than your intake (if you have an aftermarket intake). And it also has little to no drone at all, which is quite impressive for a straight-through muffler. The Apexi website advertises them as being less than 80db. Which is pretty quiet.

They are ~$180 on Ebay. There is a link in the above threads.

Good luck!

There very nice, but cost almost as much as my full cat-back. I might just try the resonator for 60 bucks. 180 is just to much for a muffler.

I thought so too for a long time, but figured this is the only route that will actually solve my problem, so I went for it.

Good luck!

At the moment I have no resonator or cat, so thats really the main reason its so loud. If I add a nice 18 inch resonator I think that will solve my problem. I had a magnaflow cat-back on my spec V with the same muffler and loved the sound, so I do like the magnaflow's sound, but you need a resonator. Thats what I get for cheaping out.

Thanks for your advice.

I think that is perfect imho, mine is atleast 5x's louder then that. I wish my exhaust sounded like that. Its nice and deep and I can barely hear it when your driving, there is also no raspy sound either.

Let me get a sound clip of mine. I'll post up later.
