Most people on here that have done it regret doing it. They say too much drone at cruising speed.

If you just remove the mufflers you need to add pipe to exhaust it out the back in the normal location. Just letting it dump out under the car will create much more noise inside and definitely won't sound good.

Muffer delete tends to sound decent and mean at first start up and idle....but once you get out to drive it will likely sound like @$$....super loud/raspy/drone.

Sounds good when paired with resonated xpipe. Its what i have. Minimum drone. At highway speeds the only drone is if you are going 80. At 55-75 it is quiet. Little louder towards 75

maybe you should try this. it would be different. If you dont like it im sure you wont have any problem selling the xpipe or you could use it if you put longtube headers on

Granted mine is the LFX engine but I deleted my cats and like the sound. The drone does get kind of annoying. Im trying to find something that will cut out the drone. I am debating between resonated Xpipe or Jpipes.

I enjoyed my miffler delete. I cut off the mufflers about 2" from the weld. Installed 3" pipe from there. I ran about 10000 miles with this and enjoyed the sound drone at 75 was tollerable to my ears. Sounded bad outside but great in the cabin. Since then i added 12" long 3" id bullet style mufflers. Deepend the sound and killed some rasp. Sounds better outside and even better inside. I plan to dump the exhaust behind the wheels some day and plug the holes in the diffuser.

I dont care what it sounds like outside. From the drivers seat at wot is where it counts for me.

Camaroc5's setup that he mentioned above sounds pretty good to my ears. The only way I'd do a muffler delete is with the magnaflow resonated X and J pipes to kill the drone dead.
