I have a 2.5in sports exhaust in my eb.
It sounds nice and powerfull underload but at idle its not quite how I want it.
I want a louder idle volume. Not hektic loud but a little more.
ideas?

It might have a tri flow muffler, a straight through muffler will give you that bit more.

dont make it too loud like mine, i have a straight through muffler which has had half of its sound deadening removed, and on idle its almost enough to blow ur eardrums :twisted:

Had a look under it today. Had a big muffler half way and a smaller one at the very end. No resonator I don't think.
A straight through muffler at the back one or middle. I deffinantly don't want highway drone in the cabin.

How did you check that it was a straight through muffler, or did you already know?

A triflow muffler should have the exit pipe offset to the entry pipe. where as a straight through should have the entry and exit pipes inline, as far as i know.

no exhaust from base of extractors and it will shoot flames so its a win win situation.

mu muffler is straight through, the entry and exit pipes are on the left and right sides respectively, the inside looks like a slight S shape, in other words a perforated pipe goes diagonal through the muffler. lol
