I have a header 4-1 meganracing + downpipe megan racing + midpipe megan racing + axleback borla.

My exhaust system is very very too loud and the sound is ugly.

Give my idea to have a better sound (at less) and a bit less louder.

Thanks guys.

A couple things off the top of my head:

#1. If I recall correctly, the Borla mufflers have a tendency to be loud. At the very least I have not met a lot of people who actually like them. What is the size/model of it?

#2. I would guess you have virtually no resonator built into your midpipe? A good (and good sized) resonator will help with "tone" of your exhaust immensely.

This probably sounds like someone having diarrhetic farts into an empty soda can? (sorry for the bad mental picture there...)

Megan + Borla sums up your exhaust problems.

You really don't have a good choice on a header but as far as the mid pipe and cat back I'd say BRM.

Cheap exhaust does not equal a good sound

I agree. Even after playing around with a different (and bigger) muffler my old set up still sounded like garbage. Now saving up to get a BRM.

yess around 2500rpm it sound like a civic lol

Ok so I guess a big resonator in the midpipe should resolved my problem.

About putting a cat.. i guess it will reduce my air flow right .. ? I don't want that .. I don't want lost performance since I'm doing lapping.

**** And what are you meaning when you say: BRM ???

You're still going to have a little rasp at WOT in between 2k-3k rpms with a 22" resonator. At least I know I did. It wasn't much but it was there. With a cat you'll have none.

What kind of lapping are you doing?

That's awesome! However considering you drive your car on the street probably 90% of the time the extra 6-7 peak hp you get from begin catless isn't worth the noise to me to have a few more ponies for something you do significantly less of the time. That's just my opinion though.
