hey guys i was looking into doing a muffler delete but some things still bother me. for instance why do these two cars sound fairly different when both of them say they only have the muffler delete with everything else????? trying to decide what to do and things like this keep throwing me off...thanks guys

Not sure how to attach videos sorry for the extra effort guys but id really appreciate the help





could really use the insight guys

Without watching the videos It's probably just because it's hard to capture that sort of sound on video with various cameras and conditions.

but the sounds are very different well atleast one of them is, the first one, the silver v sounds different than the others

It does sound like these different sounds are all due to different video conditions. The camera could be a small part of it, but I think the different tones you hear are due to the proximity of the camera to the tips. Besides that, all of the videos seem to be roughly correct for what a muffler delete sounds like on the V.

Could be the camera, could be on has bad cats, maybe ls2 vs ls6? Dunno the year of the last one.

so if i have an 07v then which one would it be more like? im guessing the black one and not the first silverV i just feel like the silverV has a different sound that wouldnt be attributed to the video camera...thanks for the responses guys

I say go for it, they all have a nice tone. The last black V was in a garage so that one is distorted, but the other two sound similar and both sound good IMO but its all the tone you want. The cameras and conditions all play a role in the sound.

I have a feeling the different mics on the different cameras have a lot to do with why the cars sound different in different videos (wow, four "differents" in one sentence). I have the muffler delete on my 07 V and I would say the second video (the one with the drive-away) is the most accurate sounding clip. I've been driving with the muffler delete for almost a year and as long as you dont mind a little drone around 1800-2100 rpms or so then by all means go for it. I've had LOTS of complements on the sound from people at stoplights, gas stations, etc. The biggest downside is my gas mileage went down a bit after getting it done, mostly from me accelerating unnecessarily just to listen to it. :thumbsup:
