New Muffler Installed
On Saturday, I installed one of them "Fireball" mufflers....G-Spec or something or other. Its a high performance straight through job with a silencer.
Well, first off I've got to just by this muffler, I can tell the importance of back pressure.
For example, with the silencer in (which reduces noise level by 7 decibels) I still have the torquey feel, but can feel the slight pick up in speed between 2500-3000rpms.
With the silencer removed, I noticed the loss of torquey pick up in the lower rpms, but I can feel the car pick up spead at 3500-4500 rpm albeit with a whole lot of noise. Not a bad noise, but loud.
Just thought I'd share this experience.
Comments are appreciated as well.

torque and horsepower can be gained...
...if you have high flow headers, hi-flow catalytic convertor and a hi flow cat back exhaust and a customer CAI ( filter located behind the front right fog light with a shield!!! ).
NA mods rocks...just imagine what a turbo would do ... ....drool drool!!!
Next mod...street cams and torque convertor!
