i got mine with 2 fufflers at the begining, bigest waste of money ever.
then i removed all mufflers it was basically a straight through pipe from the cat. that was the stupidist thing ever, i was 17 at the time though,
now ive got 1 muffler no resinator, if you dont ant it to drone but still have a nice note then get a hotdog instead of the resonator

not necesarily. depends what your doing with the car. mates dad lives right on the beach, back of his ute is constantly in the water when he's putting his boat in, and he's found it's just not worth going mild any more as they don't last.

It will be quiet when you first get it back, i know mine was, but after a while it seems to get louder and gruntier.

No holes in the exhaust either. Anyone got an explanation for this?

Get them to change the muffler to a nice flowing but quiter one.

Or you could just put the resonator on.
