    Should i run w/o muffler?

    Alright guys, i have a Flowmaster Super 40 that i have sitting around that i havent gotten to install yet, but right now ive got the stock muffler on.. Basically, me and afew of my crazy buddys are throwing around the idea of sawing off my stock muffler and running straightpipes until i finally decide to put the Flowmaster on

    Is this a bad idea? if i ran no muffler would my car be redicilously loud or toleratable?

    Here is a video of a monte, running no muffler and has the same engine as my car, it dosent seem crazy loud, but sounds pretty ******

    Straight pipes are also illegla in some cities/states. Check out your local laws and regulations befor eyou persue this. If you decide you care not, then it's up to you I guess.

    Just because he does so, does not mean that they pass emmissions.

    No...unless you have a blown/cammed V8, turbo'd Supra/350z, or a Ferrari/Lamborghini/etc, nobody wants to hear your exhaust without a muffler.

    after cutting the pipes, it is best to test them by sitting in a closed garage with the motor running.

    Re: Should i run w/o muffler?

    You have to check emissions laws in your state. If you run without a muffler on a car thats past 96 at least in New York there is no chance of ever passing the emissions testing. I have a 94 so I don't need to worry about it



    It's a Jeep thing....

    You don't understand.....

    Yeah, we understand
