Well this is how I see it. The exhaust slows down during idle. When you speed the motor up the exhaust speeds up and the mufflers do not have time to absorb the sound, thus allowing more sound to pass by. Less muffler will allow more sound. I have Corsa exhaust and after the mods it was pretty loud all the time. I installed a Magnaflow muffler to the pipes in the tunnel. During idle it is very quiet, but during acceleration it comes alive.
There's more to life than gas mileage
