Seems like I might just be better off selling this exhaust and getting a quieter one...

Try Borla. I love mine. Not too loud, not too quiet, just right. Sounds good at start-up, accelleration & WOT, quiet at cruise & idle, very minimal drone.

It will quiet down after some time. How much? don't know. Also when you first put an exhaust on your not used to it. When i put my long tube headers on i had a pretty bad headache the first day and then a few days later it didn't bother me as much. Maybe got used to it or exhaust broke in more? Maybe a little of both. If it still bothers you after some time maybe j pipes etc or a different set up.

Do the resonated x-pipe first. If you're still not happy, add the J's.
If that doesn't do it, get a Prius.

How is it going to quiet down after some time? It's a muffler delete...meaning no mufflers.

If there were mufflers then maybe it could quiet down but in reality it would probably do the opposite. When a muffler has packing in it then it will be the quietest when you first put it on. Over time the packing breaks up or loosens and the exhaust should actually get louder not quieter.

Try the resonated x-pipe or get something else. Thing is that you probably have a hard time selling it. I don't think a muffler delete is very popular on the V6. I'm pretty sure it won't work on a V8 either because V6 is 2.25" vs a V8 having 2.5".

Would the resonate x-pipe actually help and make a difference or would it just help a little. I don't want to spend the money and then only get a little result.

Also, x-pipe or j-pipes?!

Lots of good suggestions here, but I'm not sure if your fully understanding them.

It sounds like what you may be experiencing is what is known as drone. Drone can be minimal or it can be loud. Drone is like a low humming sound, and when it is bad if sounds as if it is resonating throughout the entire cabin and can be very annoying. Drone mostly occurs when traving at certain speeds and RPM ranges....the most common of which is at around 2,000 rpm (give or take) cruising on the highway. It will get even worse if you are crusing, and have to go up a hill and engine lugs a bit. If you feel the incabin sound gets better when your rpms climb to say closer to 3,000 rpm, then this is surely drone. If it is just always too loud, no matter the rpm, then it may simply be that the exhaust is just to loud.

If you think it is drone, but are very happy with the sound of the exhaust on the outside of your car, the best bet it J pipes, also known as Helmholtz pipes. You can't just weld them in place and be done...they have to be the proper length so keep that in mind. See the SOLO catback exhaust for this V6 for example. J pipes are the best at killing drone at whatever rpm range you set them up for.

Otherwise, if you wouldn't mind toning down your exhaust, and helping drone, do the resonated X from Magnaflow. It is a very easy, and relatively in-expensive change. Just add the new resonated X muffler around the same point in your exhaust where the stock H pipe would be. In my opinion, it would improve the sound overall, making it less raspy with a lower tone.

Hope this helps.

I think the solo j pipe would do more good for a muffler delete system, just do a search on here for j pipe in the titles and you can read a lot about them.

A set of J-pipes will help the interior drone. A resonated X-pipe can cut down on some drone and reduce the volume some. Another easy idea is a swap to the LM2 mufflers. They should just swap right in......Give us a call and we can go over some options.

I was just thinking that maybe if I just added a muffler it would help? Would it? Instead of adding j or x pipes could i just add a mangaflow muffler or something?

Or would it still be better to do a j or x pipe?

Adding a muffler would definitely help but that would mean removing the loudmouth 1. If you're fine with that, and want a quiet exhaust, borla or magnaflow are the way to go. Everyone suggests the magnaflow x-pipe (which is basically a muffler) or the j-pipes because that's what you can do without removing the slp lm 1

The x-pipe will eliminate any rasp you may have and help drone some

He got a muffler delete. No mufflers at all.

To the OP. The best thing to do is to get a new axle back. Even with a resonator of any kind unless you add a bunch of then its still gonna be bad. If you get a new axle back it will be alot simpler and lighter.
