Exhaust noise wanted...

Postby scampbel98 » Mon Oct 02, 2017 5:50 pm

currently running the following
1.8L block
2.0L Fi Head
vicks domed pistons
32/36 DFEV
4-2-1 header/downpipe
ANSA final exhaust and muffler
stock mid pipe and resonator

I want a little more noise, a little more "Italian sound" *and* my existing mid muffler/resonator hits the drive shaft a bit.
I'm thinking about either removing the resonator all up or dropping in a glasspack or straight thru.

Any one else running similar? done similar? we don't drive it a ton, so a bit louder isn't concerning.
May be adding Stage 1 or Stage 2 cams in the near future...

In ran my '82 for awhile with just the cat and resonator, no muffler. It's had a nice snotty sound with a great burble when you got off the throttle. I eventually added a glass pack to tone it down.

My exhaust is a single pipe from the down-pipe to the muffler. No cat, resonator, glass pack, etc. I think it sounds great - not deafening, but considerably louder and deeper than a stock setup.

Glass pack where the CAT should be with a flow through muffler. It's actually a little loud but sounds great when I get on her. Ideally I should install a bypass to keep the flow going through the muffler but avoid one step in sound filtering on demand. This would be nice on the highway for a long drive and may even preserve my hearing. Who know, may be able to put the stereo below 35 hand hear what the person next to me is saying.

However, there is no better sound then when pushing it through a tunnel or overpass.
Buon giro a tutti! - enjoy the ride!
