    Exhaust

    I am looking for a quick way to make my Trans Am louder. I am not wanting to put a full system on, but just put a new muffler or something like that on. Any suggestions on what to do?

    that would be loud for a dd though. listen to exhausts on ls1sounds.com. either get a catback or find one you like and buy that company's muffler and slap it on.

    I know what cut outs are, but how much are they? And nothings too loud for a daily driver

    Get an electric cut out and its up to you. Loud when you want it and not so loud, if you would ever want that. I have had mine for 4 years from http://www.dmhperformance.com/
    It was about 30 bucks to get the "y" put on. I ran the switch up a rubber gromet in the rear passanger floor, under the carpet and into the ash tray.

    I don't think it's too loud out all, not with manifolds and cats.

    Not capped.

    I caught all kinds of shit from some friends saying that it sounded like a catback LS1. Which is perfect for me.
    Nothing like a 520RWHP car sounding basicly stock.

    Cutout FTW. Or maybe cut off the muffler and dump it straight down so it echoes off the ground. A buddy of mine did that and it sounds great.
