Does anyone know where I can get a decent, non-ricey muffler, for under 50 dollars?

My best friend has a 2004 WRX, and I want the sound his car makes, in my car, when it's all done...

So far I have a header, and downpipe after that... what would be my best way to get that sound? Or something as close to it, as possible

Would I need to keep the cat? (It's not required in MI)

If I ditch the cat, will I get any CEL's?

See, what I'm thinking, is header, downpipe, then no cat, and a muffler... but I'm not sure how that would sound...

Anyone help me out?

well, as for sounding like this car, it wont happen unless you use his motor and muffler

Ya, that boxer engine sounds bad ass...

But ok, how close can I get to that low end rumble, without being annoying and weed wacker-ish sounding?

A good long cold air intake will help with that sound. I also have a 2.25 Magnaflow I may be interested in selling in the near future but not sure yet.

long ram intake, some kinda cam, a flowmaster hush power and a flowmaster super 40 would get u near that


btw i have a scooby with dual borlas :wiggle:

You'll never get that sound out of your car. Boxer engines have a pretty unique sound you can tell that it's a boxer from blocks away. If you want a nice sound without it being ricey, get a resonator along with a magnaflow muffler. If you don't have a resonator it will sound raspy and kind of crappy at high RPMs. Without a resonator it sounds awesome when cruising around though.

Well an exhaust will make your car dramatically louder. If you want as loud as possible get a straight pipe with no muffler. It's pretty loud, I drove like that for a few days. Right now I have a header, high flow cat, with 2.25 straigth to a magnaflow fart can, and it was way too loud on the highway, I didn't want to spend money on a resonator so I just put in a silencer.

i dont need to worry about it being too loud, i want it so loud there is almost no way to quiet it down if u drive by a cop but on the highway thats what the 2 12''s are for

my brother had a saturn sc2 and he had a 2.5'' straight pipe with a 3'' fart can and that thing was insanely amazing sounding, and it was so fast

Ya, before the spindle on the gray celica went, that car had no cat, no muffler, just straight pipe, and it wasn't overly bad...

I'm thinking, header, no cat, resonator, and a magnaflow muffler...

My celica sounds surprisingly good for having only a PCV "cold air" and only a muffler with a couple exhaust leaks. When it hits about 3g it is surprisingly deep and roars, I love driving it

Hahaha, so how you think my setup I'm talking about will sound?

And when you guys say resonators, you mean like, glasspacks?

I'm confused... :-\

celicaGT90_05

glasspack is different from a resonator, its a strait through style muffler and some exhaust tips are resonators

Ok, so lets say I want to get a resonator...

Where should I go? Can I get a resonator, that isn't in the exhaust tip?

Like, one I can weld inline with my exhaust system I'm getting built?

a lot of car companies actually use a resonator before the actual muffler. I cant remember if the celica has one or not, but I think it does, so to answer your question yes you can get some to weld before the exhaust tip

Actually, a resonator is a concept entirely different from the straight-through mufflers (today's are a higher tech version of the 1950s glasspacks).

Resonators, which come stock on Celica exhausts, are essentially an echo chamber tuned to bounce sound waves into each other, which cancels them out and transforms the sound energy into heat.

Straight-through mufflers are absorption devices, as opposed to a resonator's cancellation basis. They do different things in a different way.

Two birds with one stone -- get a catalytic converter with a resonated core. You get rid of that annoying buzzy note sad-sack idiots who mistake volume for performance seem to love, and keep the air in better condition which means it's easier for both us and our cars to breathe.

well that is true, I didnt mean it as in it has absorption material. I've always known it to be a style of muffler though. As for the catalytic convertor idea, I know magnaflow/carsound make one and I know a guy on ebay who sells them very cheap too, he has a HUGE inventory. Whenever I am looking for exhaust products, I look there first, its where I got my flowmaster for the grand prix and the catalytic convertor on my ranger.

If you have the offer option, he usually accepts $5 below list price just FYI, some times a little more. Anyway I set it up for the catalytics for you, but feel free to browse around
