Re: Rear Muffler

Dont think its illegal as long as it passes noise restriction.
When my EA rusted out it sounded a bit better and louder

Re: Rear Muffler

I think taking the rear resonator/muffler out completely would make it too boomey and droany in the car especially at highway speeds.

I have tried to replace the rear muffler with a smaller hotdog type resonator and found that too droany and annoying.

It'll sound real bad and will drone big time.

Do it properly. Get a performance/sports system fitted. It'll sound better and give you a bit more grunt! :)
