How loud is a NA EA82 with a presilencer & straight pipe?
Posted 30 March 2005 - 01:09 AM
The current plan is to put a glasspack/presilencer at the back of the Y-pipe (no cats), straight pipe back, and possibly another muffler at the rear end.
My goal is improved power over stock, but also a fairly quiet exhaust note on the highway. The GL rides & drives like a luxury car, it may as well sound like it too. Growl when wide open is fine, but I don't want any sort of drone at highway speeds. I don't know if just a presilencer will do this, or if I should add a muffler as well. Possibly 2 glasspacks, one at the front, one at the rear?

first i had stock y(with cat), stock resonater, no muffler>pretty loud but not to bad
2nd: stock Y, no resonater, no muffler> really really really loud, sounded compareable to a harley with pipes, sort of:rolleyes: . lots of poping when in high rpm's and letting off the gas
3rd: stock Y, no resonator, 2 1/2" pipe, OBX canister> not too loud and perfect IMO
4th: cateless Y, no resonator,2 1/2 pipe, OBX canister> it was loud again and anoying..without the cat i lost back pressure and my lowend suffered
hope that helps

My exhaust systems keep removing themselves right behind the catilytic converter. The EJ22 sounds nice like that, kind of a v8 rumble when idling and a nice howl up high. The EA82's sound bad though, real harsh and lots of backfiring. I did some illeagal driving with my old one and I had to have the pedal just right to coast without making noise, little too much and it would rip the officers ears off, little too far off and it would sound like a gunfight. The blue flames out of the back of the cat are cool though.

Very non-annoying and gaining performance. I did this to my humble loyale recently, kept oem muffler in back (no packing, long lasting).
