Just looking for opinions. I can't decide if I want to go with no muffler or not. Ive got a catback with wider pipes but the muffler I was sold is basically just a stock replacement.

Ive been wanting to get a new muffler for awhile but theres other stuff I need to be spending my money on right now.

I went mufflerless for awhile last year and it wasn't bad. Real loud in the car but I dont care about that.

Opinions?

If you can stand it and the local PD wont say anything, then i dont see a problem with it. Would be way to loud for me though

I say buy a flowmaster 80... :D

For the ls1 right? If its chopped off and dumped after the axle then it wont be terribly bad. Alot like a rumbler exhaust.

If its dumped before the axle then its gonna be loud inside and rattle the car unless you roll the windows down.

I had it for awhile and it wasnt bad. Never had a problem with the police. Its past the axle so its loud but it isnt unbearable. I think Im going to do it.

Not sure how raspy it would be, but definitely loud. It doesn't seem much different than going with a pre-muffler cutout which I've considered (but would be easier to close back up). If you liked it before and cops didn't bother you, might as well hack it off.

took it off and it sounds awesome, just like I remembered it.

however, when i pulled it out, I accidentally dropped the muffler on my face. That hurt like hell.
