Default New exhaust...Well Sorta

My stock muffler was on its way out so I just figured i'd remove rather than replace it, So I took it off last night and thew on a 90* pipe just to keep it away from the gas tank. Brought it to the exhaust shop toady and had them fab me up a pipe and throw on a stainless/carbon fiber tip I had laying around. Also had them clamp it on rather than weld it in for when inspection time rolls around




Guess I missed a bit of dirt too, lol



Looks good, sounds better and saves me a few lbs. I'm happy with it.

It looks nice, but it must be extremely loud

You'll find out this summer if it's too loud for the cops. The Neon SRT-4 came without a muffler and owners were hassled a lot. Really depends where you live and the mood of the cops whether they'll hassle you or not. Good luck.

If a cop stops you, "sell it" as a snow melting flame thrower!

They won't bother me, My past few cars were much louder than than this one and they never bothered me.
