ARH Mufflers

My car has had the ARH 1 7/8" headers, and x pipe for over a year now.

I ran the system into the stock mufflers and thought it sounded great, recently the drivers side muffler blew out and started rattling inside. It made my car sound like complete shit, so it was time for new mufflers. . .

I went with ARH mufflers to complete the exhaust system. . . THESE MUFFLERS SOUND AMAZING!

The sound is deeper and meaner than stock, but just as loud. No more "raspy" sound, no drone ever.

This is the best mod I have done in a while, I can't stop driving the car now.

I'll post pictures of these and of the stock muffler cut open to see whats rattling. As far a video it never really captures the sound correctly anyway

I really want to hear this no drone inside the cabin. I've heard people say there's no drone but never had someone take video in all the normal trouble zones for aftermarket exhausts.

Hey man could you post a video of turning your car on so we could hear the ARH muffler tones; that'd be great

I could'nt find any video of ARH mufflers

Are the ARH mufflers 3" or 2 1/2"? Straight-thru or chambered? Any pics?

I've got the ARH 1 7/8" without cats right now. Currently using Bassani straight thru's. They sound good but muffler inlet is 2 1/2". ARH mufflers look nice. It appears that they are 2 1/2" too. Wonder if there's a 3" version available.

i believe GTAHVIT has a couple comparison vids that show 2.5" mufflers making slightly more power & definitely being ear-rapingly louder than a 3" - at least on his car. i can personally vouch for the 2.5" being louder & meaner

I cut open the drivers side stock muffler to see what was rattling.

Still not sure but I'm assuming it was the one baffle. . .
