First of all, punctuation is your friend. You might want to consider using it.

Second of all, the muffler may get louder as time goes on. The diameter of the piping will have little to do with the sound. Other than that, I don't know how you couldn't notice that much of a difference. If you actually have installed what you say you have, then it should be plenty noisy, especially with no resonator.

1st of all who really cares about punctuation.secondly i think that you are calling me a liar, however i am not i assure you, i went from all stock with a hole in the muffler to madd hatters muffler in milford ct. i got the name directly from the magna flo web site, and the day before me and my buddy but in the cold air intake. it was a pain because we had to take that piece of the air box out and intergrate it into the cold air, so take it easy i'm just looking for some info and no its not plenty noisy its verry quiet hence my post you idiot

1st of all, along with punctuation comes capitalization. But I suppose since you don't use punctuation, you don't ever need to use capitalization.

2nd of all, I personally recommend drilling holes in the muffler to let more sound come out. If you drill them toward the front of the muffler (front of the car), it will give more of a "surround sound" as the sound will go both forward and backward from the car. :tup:

I blame U.S. public education.

Your stock muffler had a hole in it, so it was already louder than stock. Your new muffler will get louder over time. If you want to speed it up, go ahead and punch holes in it as Fastest said.

Typically louder mufflers are louder because they offer less restriction as well. (as far as I know) Combined with the material / thickness they're made of.

You have got to be kidding me. Maybe you should have posted this in the new members forum where they are easier on people like you. If you respond in that tone, expect the same back:shrug:

LOL!

I had to breath a couple of times just to finish his first sentence. I thought I was going to pass-out halfway to his paragraph. Oops,I mean sentence.

Incresed flow = more noise. Bigger piping, less restrictive components... ie cat/resonator/tailpipe, would all increase the flow/noise level. Throw some headers on there too, it would be even louder. But a high performance quiet exhaust is just as good.

:shrug:

Don't be discouraged by the flaming. It happens to most newbies. Some of that stuff was pretty funny though.

Ok I have two things

1: Stop being a retard. Yelling at a moderator is a stupid thing to do. People are giving you their idieas on how to solve your noise problem. If you dont like it say "thank you but i dont want to ruin a brand new muffler" not "are you crazy?"

"thank you but i dont want to ruin a brand new muffler" = good

"are you crazy?" = bad

talking back to a moderator = very dumb

punctuation = good


2: In the pipe that goes through the muffler there are many holes that go into the muffler. In the muffler is a sort of stuffing that muffles the noise. Get your hands on a mig welder and stick it in the muffler and just tack weld up some of those holes. Now you will have less holes that go into the muffler and reduce the noise. Thus resulting in a louder exhaust.

vrouv06 - when you report a post, you are sumitting it for review to the moderation team.. you are alerting us to a bad psot.. you ARENT sending a personal message to the poster.. keep that in mind, because if i thought what you wrote were directed at me or a fellow mod, you might be in some trouble ;)

webone - When you fail to type clearly, it makes it harder for people to read. If you want good advice, you want the people reading it to understand it. Grow a thicker skin, because frankly.. your writing is pretty terrible..

Thus, your only options are to either improve it/ be more attentive to it, or grow a thicker skin regarding the criticisms you receive when people cannot read what you wrote.

This doesn't only apply to online forums, but also as you get out into the world... You'll find that poor writing, in whatever profession you wind up in, sticks you with a stigma of being stupid...

lastly.. the guys with blue titles are moderators. If you feel you have been treated poorly by one, feel free to PM/email the administration or the moderator him/herself.. but being disrespectful to one will do nothing but get you banned. You are new here.. you have hardly been around long enough or contributed long enough to warrant the attitude and ego you are presenting yourself with.

Now, regarding your problem... which muffler do you have? no resonator, 2.25" piping, and a decent straight through muffler should be plenty loud...
