Lightweight exhaust option as quite as stock?

I'm running cut outs as part of my set up, mainly because I like having the power on tap and being able to retain the quietness of stock.

The problem however is the stock piping from the cats back, including the mufflers, is extremely heavy.

Is there any exhaust option that is basically the same as stock but lighter?

Meaning same piping size (not requirement), same sound (nothing louder than a stock muffler).

Sorry, off the top of my head, I can't think of any solution here... if you do anything to the stock mufflers, you will get louder sound or crappier sound. Cutting the mufflers and going straight pipe is a no-no. Adding any axle back right now on the market will change the tone. I think you should talk to your local muffler shop. I'm pretty sure they can help you come up with an idea =D

I would try the GMPP exhaust since it seems to be one of the most quiet aftermarket exhausts...of course it wont sound exactly like stock.

maybe you could get a shop to make custom pipes for you but thats about it I can't think of anything I have heard that would be like what you are after.

GMPP will get you lighter and be almost as quiet as stock, or you can do a full Corsa Catback and be alot lighter without any drone

You and I have the same car and I put Borla's axle back Touring model cans (not Sport model) on. At idle and just tooling around the neighborhood they're just have just a bit more authority than stock. Put your foot in it and they do get louder than stock but sound great IMHO.
They weigh 10lbs a piece, saving a total of 30lbs over stock.

craziest thing is I believe that if you have them done right. my example being that my pipes are straights from the cats-back and it sounds mean. have to get them done right or they will indeed sound crappy.

i forgot. most of everyone wants that light humm sound coming from their exhaust, or a slightly amplified noise. I rather have something that's extremely loud, so i can piss off as many peace-lovers i can.

Disappointing but thats what I expected.

My cut outs are electric so I can just be loud when I want to and enjoy quietness equally.

People with aftermarket exhausts, anyone have mufflers that are quiet until about 2,000 rpms? I could deal with a louder muffler as long as it was quiet down low.

Well, since i have the Corsa Catback exhaust, I have to say, it doesn't begin to roar until 3k RPM. 2.5k it gets a bit louder, but still pretty normal.

You have no idea how many people i scare when I'm cruising along in the 2k range, and suddenly burst into the 5-6ks. You really see people turning to see where it's coming from. Like a sneaky NINJA!



Here, watch that. After the cold start and revs, there is a drive with windows down. I didn't accelerate hard off the line, it was gradual. Hopefully this will give you a feel of the sound ranges. Imo, it sounds pretty quiet in the low RPMs

However, i do feel this system would be too expensive for your purposes. Just had to give my advice though =D
