weight of mufflers lose power? A decent muffler design should quiet it down enough without killing power. a 2.5 inch exhaust would kill much more power than 24" of straight through muffler.

Plus, I'm not gonna swap out an exhaust at the track. F that.

mufflers will weigh the exhaust down and you'll probably put one muffler on, then realize it's still too loud, then put another one, and another. Just have a track exhaust that isn't hard to take on/off and a 2.5 inch exhaust for the street. It's not like losing power on the street really matters...

I used to have little inserts I could put in my exhaust pipe that made it a lot quieter. any models out there that let you do that?

I have my exhaust setup so I can swap them out. Either I have my straight pipe, or the fart can. Easy as pie to change, two bolts next to the diff and two hangers. Takes me 5 minutes.

Will you be running cats? A non-catted, non-mufflered V8 is retarded loud.

nay on the cats. After this year, the car no longer needs emissions.

I think you need to put a muffler on your vagina, because that thing is screaming out no balls right now!

You need straight pipe for drifty.
