    Gutted stock muffler.

    Has anybody ever gutted there stock muffler? Well, one day I was bored and decided to gut out my muffler. It took a few hours , but I think it sounds good. Alot better than stock. What do you guys think? I just have to fix the heat shield, it rattles.

    def. sounds better than stock. I'd still invest in an exhaust to open up the air flow

    You definitely deserve cred for creativity. Sounds better than stock, fix the rattle.

    I just added some Loudmouth I and whooey...

    I wish I could hear it. F-in dial-up!!
    The stock muffler without any packing is pretty weak. The packing is its backbone.

    I cut open the outer layer and the inner layer of the muffler. Inside the muffler is three baffles, which restricts air flow. I used an air saw and removed the baffles, which made it a wide open muffler. I then welded up the inner layer and then the outer layer.
