    Looking for some opinions, get a shop to delete mufflers or get a new exhaust (looking at invidia r400 or MagnaFlow ). Not really looking for HP going just something louder :)

    Update: I went to a shop today and my mufflers cut out, both of them cost me $180.

    Got some clips. may not be the best as I just used my phone haha. Other clips on youtube have much better quality than mine :)

    Clips before:

    find a muffler you like and have a shop weld on.

    Do a resonator delete you'll be happy and it's cheap

    If you delete the res you will not hear a difference from inside the car while driving.

    Honestly the only exhaust setup I've heard that I've liked is the MAPerformance Street/Race one. Muffler delete is up there for first imo and Greddy a close second

    Install a stiffer rear motor mount. You'll get sound and a ton of other great benefits and it's significantly less than an exhaust.

    Muffler delete only. Definitely don't resonator and mufflers.

    If you don’t like the quietness of the cabin just roll your windows down...
    (Cheapest)

    Or get a Mazda MX-5 softop!
    (Very Very Very Expensive)

    I suggested the exhaust if you don’t take my first to options
    (Practical)

    I heard an Si with muffler and resonator delete in person, it actually sounded pretty good and not too loud like you'd expect a straight pipe 1.5 to sound. He said he had stock dp/fp so that's probably why it sounded manageable

    Borla! Highest decibals ... Only 26 pounds. Magnaflow actually ADDS weight above stock. I am broke as all get out at the moment but only because I am moving from NY to SC. I may do a muffler delete ... Then get the Borla once I get a job!

    Stiffer mounts can give the car a little more sound and vibration. At least that's what I noticed in my GSR

    No better solution than ... Pumping fake audio into the sound system! No one would actually do that ... Right???
