Default Another Bored Day At The Office!

So since I had 2 hrs to kill before my client came in, I decided to get a muffler delete!
If I didn't like the way it sounds I would just get an exhaust system.. But it actually sounds good.

Will take a better video tomorrow.

I went to Meineke, every other shop wanted $290 to cut them off and replace it with a pipe.

Sounds awesome. I personally like it better than some of the aftermarket mufflers.

By the way, what is muffler delete? Is this something you can install back on before the lease ends?

Yea they just cut them off and replaced it with a straight pipe. And when lease is done, they will just weld the mufflers back on

At idle you can't even really notice it. When cruising, you do here a drown at 2500-3000rmp. When when I'm sport and messing around with paddle shifters, it sound like a M3, even the way it shifts.
