I heard a few vid clips of the SS with the muffler delete. Its really growing on me. Are there any power lossess though running no mufflers?
I thought the same thing, sounds cool, I can save some $$$ , right.
After only 3 days I could not stand it any longer. It sounded like my old cutlass after the muffler fell off. Sure it sounds good when you are gettin on it but you gotta slow down sooner or later and the decel popping drove me nuts. Any type of muffler will sound better than none at all. We drive a classy, hot car it should sound that way. I went with MBRP 3" stainless cat back. Good luck! Let us hear what you end up with!
I would expect a loss on the low end of the power scale by eliminating some back pressure in the exhaust system.
Personally, I've never been a fan of the muffler-delete sound on a street car.
Normally yes if the mufflers were in the first few feet or in the middle of the exhaust stream, but seeing that they are towards the end, the amount of surface area of piping the the exhaust is traveling through has already recognized the "needed" back pressure, so probably very small loss if any.
Dyno will tell all.
