Re: Quiet exhaust
The trouble is (and thus the reasons sports systems are more effective) that the factory resonators and mufflers dont run straight through. they have angles inside them etc to really quieten everything down, so its not as free flowing as a sports (read: louder) one would be.
If youre looking at doing a new system, i wouldnt discount extractors completely just yet, as to really feel any difference you are going to need them. About the only thing i can suggest is that if you want to keep it as quiet as the stock one, try running 1 or 2 straight through mufflers in the system. That way, you'll quieten it down a bit but you wont lose the effectiveness of it.
