I recently purchased a Dynomax Super Turbo Muffler for my Maxima.

I read that its one of the quietest performance mufflers around.

I have a Y-Pipe, Magnaflow Hi Flow Cat, and 2.5" from the cat back.

The problem is that this muffler is just too loud!!!

I have a resonator on my B-Pipe.


How can I silence it? Would a universal tip help?

This is what I bought:

get used to it or go back to stock, i run a flowmaster 40 with no resonator, a highflow cat and headers and im not complaining.. maybe that means im a redneck? I even ran with no muffler for about two weeks while i was waiting for my flowmaster to come in

There are no performance mufflers that are as quite or quiter than stock. Switch back or get used to it like astyl said.

Just get a stock muffler and get a intake.. the front end sound should be enough to tickle your noise fancy

I dunno how the sizes match up but you might look into something like the OEM muffler that would come on a 350z or G35 coupe. Those have a unique sound and aren't obnoxious.

first get rid of the high flow cat and go back to stock because it is not necessary and will quiet it down some. secondly it will be loud no matter what because your muffler is straight through which is like no muffler at all plus it is 2.5". honestly the only exhaust thatsounds like stock but still sees performance is an rsr exhaust. also you can just add resonators.

A Question For Everyone....would the size of the muffler's body make a difference with how loud it is?


for example:

I have a muffler that is 14" in length

I am looking at teh same brand muffler, but its 20" in length.

would that be less noisey?



14" muffler (case)

20" muffler (case)

Hye dude u can go over to summit and do some searching(cuz I forgot what they call them)it is just a insert that u put at the back of the muffler and creates lil or no extra back presure. If u do decide to go with a different muffler,try a Flowmaster hushpowers they have a nice lil mellow tone,or look at the 70 series..IIRC the are just a light duty performance muffler.Or u can say screw it and just thro a dynomax bullet on there
