I had 2 1/4" exhaust from the cat back on my Ej22. Only muffler on it was a 20" cherry bomb at the very end. It was loud. Kinda fun for the first 20mins, then annoying. It sucked on long drives, felt like someone had been boxing your ears what with the resonances inside the car.
I went to the JunkYard and picked up a Flowmaster for $15. Cut the cherry bomb off, tacked the flowmaster on..
Way worse. Louder than the cherry bomb, really bad crackel when you snapped off the throttle.
So I put the cherry bomb in front of the back axle, and the flowmaster back by the gas tank. welded it all together, and now it's wicked quiet. Well, compared to the cherry bomb that is.
As one of the guys at work said, "It's amazing how two things known for being loud can be so quiet when put together."
