exhaust noise in cabin

I have the borla atak catback exhaust sound and i really love it, however, i wish it was louder in the car when i rev it and really step on it. Is there anyway to make it louder? I do plan on doing 2" headers....will this solve it?

Maybe try replacing your mufflers with some type of bullet. I like Classic Chambered Exhaust's Power sticks. Very GMMGish sort of sound. Or if you really want it LOUD inside you could run a setup that dumps before the axle.

2 words...............muffler delete.

i can hear my car great inside.

its pretty quiet but when you get on it you definately know it

i did a quick burnout vid after the muffler delete,ill see if i can post it.

also, try folding your back seat down,my car sounds ALOT louder inside with the seat down.

The headers will make a major difference. I wouldn't do anything else until you add those.

I have muffler delete and its not loud at all inside... these cars need headers to really sound good! Its pretty loud outside the car when I rev it, but these new cars are insulated so well that you cant hear your exhaust like you could in the old cars. But install headers... and watch out, because they sound wicked! The fist camaro I test drove had headers and 1 chamber flowmasters, it sounded insain!
