    Default Which muffler for my application?

    Hey all,

    I'm looking for a muffler to suit my car. The exhaust as it currently stands is a wrapped 6 to 1 MSA (or clone, it's off a junkyard car) header, and a 2.5" pipe from the header back.

    I like the sound of this quite a bit:
    Honda CBX 1000

    I'm not sure whether that'll be possible while maintaining my neighborhood tranquility, though.

    So, the impossible dilemma: is there a relatively quiet muffler that gives that sort of sound?

    Typically the performance motorcycle pipes (mufflers) that I've seen are more like the perforated tube style resonators. The Stainless pipe on my bike is that style. You might run a glass-wrap perforated tube style muffler, like a Dynomax Ultra-flo welded, or double up on the perforated tube glass packs.

    Those can arguably replicate the type of exhausts you see on the bike. I have no doubt it will sound great, however, you'll be lucky if you can make a 240Z sound like a CBX. It's a completely different engine, 6 carbs, cross-flow head, twin cams, probably a different firing order, less displacement, etc.

    I love my Turbo Muffler. It's a Raptor Turbo Muffler, similar to the Cherry Bomb Turbo. 2.5" in and 2.5" out. The inlet is offset like stock.

    Here's a couple soundbites....

    Second video down on the right. Titled "240Z New Exhaust" Can't post a link cause it contains the letters D I C K in the code.

    The exhaust has since mellowed out a bit due to build up in the pipe and muffler but everybody says they like it. Also, my exhaust sound was used in the Forzamotorsport 2 game on Xbox 360. My name is in the credits in the "Special Thanks To" area of the game.
