Least expensive way to get loud

What's the least expensive way to get really loud with decent tips??
I had something like these on my Shelby and they were ok.

It's hard to tell from the video they posted. Doesn't sound very loud to me.

muffler delete and upgrade to some nice double walled tips at the same time.

go to a muffler shop and for about $90 dollars they will cut your mufflers out. They will have to re-weld your tips anyway so at that time choose a nicer set for them to weld on.

I thought about that but when I saw those deletes on eBay I figured I could get those and do it myself In the garage. I wonder how much difference in sound there would be one way or the other.

It would be comparable. The question is do you feel more comfortable cutting into your exhaust or letting a professional do it for $90?

It's basically the same thing but since he has to weld the old tips on anyway he would probably not charge you to weld new tips and could even probably offer you a good deal on a set.

good because you will get some. A lot of popping and drone at between 1900 and 2000 RPM. However the car will sound amazing.

Why would you want to have your brand new car sound like it has glass packs? I agree it needs some beefier sound out of it, but havent heard of anyone on here that has not upgraded to mufflers after they did the delete. Just save the money and do it right the first time. You wont be sorry.

I agree. Muffler delete sounds trashy and cheap. Do it right.

Do the muffler delete. It does not sound trashy and cheap, it sounds like a muscle car. SLP sells an exhaust that basically is a muffler delete but cost 4x more than it would to have it done at a muffler shop. I am hoping to get some high flow cats soon and then it will be really really loud.

Here is a video:

Louder isn't always better. A car with decent tone while still maintaing a good level of volume is the best way to go imo. There are some fools around here in south that think a old school caprice on 24inch rims with no mufflers sound good however nothing about this setup sounds no where decent. My exhaust is just as loud volume wise but yet it has a tone that sounds good.

Well I love the sound of the SLP Loudmouth and I was going to buy it, but it is basically a muffler delete. So when I heard how much a muffler delete cost I decided to do that instead. The OP wants something loud and inexpensive.

LMAO!, that is a very simple sound to achieve. I used to have that on all my cars because when I was 18 I couldn't afford and exhaust system. My mufflers had holes in them and thats how it sounds.
It sounds trashy to me, like someone is running straight pipe on a v6 trying to make like its a v8. Anyone who knows anything about cars will know it right away and to be honest not respect a person for it. Its a kids thing I guess, but it's also a cop magnet. I wouldn't do it. Its a kin to a big huge fart pipe on a Honda

My neighbor has the same car as me and probably spent at least $1000 on his exhaust. Mine sounds better and louder. I do not at all see how this sounds like a v6. And I know a lot of people who know about cars and they love the way it sounds.

Oh and this guy must not have enough money to get an exhaust either

Muffler delete with JBA midpipes (hi-flow cats) sounds vicious.

The whole setup was well under a grand.

i have a muffler and resonator delete on my stock exhaust. if you think it sounds cheap and shitty then yo need your hearing aid checked.

i get nothing but looks and compliments every where i go. the car sounds like it should. take it to Midas, have them cut out the mufflers and the resonators (they'll probably tell you it's gonna be too loud, like they told me) do it anyway, trust me.

you'll smile every time you turn the car on, every single time you get on the gas and every single time you down shift. I guarantee it.

oh i forgot to mention i replaced the stock H pipe with a magna Flow X pipe.
