Well when you don' t have the RB mufflers on there it is loud as hell, I know it was on my car. The guy who is "being an ***" is my buddy and has heard the car many times, and knows how loud it is. Maybe you should get a little more info before you start calling people an ***. So who's the *** now?

Go back to the "club" they seem to like ******** there.

ok, how loud would an N.A be if : it had Headers... and that's it. No pre silencer, no mufflers..



Just headers with a pipe running out to the side of the car.



Would there be any power gains from running open headers?



And how freaking loud would it be?



I'm even thinking about taking my radio out. so Noise or hearing things really isnt an issue.



Thanks guys.

It would not be streetable, it would be too loud. You would get pulled over just being at idle. So if you do it, I hope you like cops, because you'll be dealing with them alot. As far as power gains... I think the power gained wouldn't be worth going deaf.

if you run a header and let it out the side, it will be as if you have no exhaust on whatsoever

i had that, but it gets tired fast as you cant drive it for more than one hour as the sound makes

you loose all sence of soroundings, TOO loud trust me , i like loud but thats overkill
