why are you directing that at me? I don't have washers in my exhaust. No one finds aftermarket exhaust classy unless they know cars. If they do know cars it depends what sort of cars they are into because most people are just fanboys of the brand, the only people who will find it classy are some fellow subaru owners and other import owners who actually have respect for other brands. If you want to be classy, stay stock, as soon as your car has an exhaust note following it you become that kid with the loud car who people don't want to live near.

My bad for aiming that towards you. I thought you were the kid that started this thread. My bad.

This is NOT a good idea for many reasons.

This isn't a mod either. Its a willful displacement of a standard connection to allow some sound to "leak". Its not a mod in any way. You can't just punch a hole in your car and call it a mod.

You are also leaking exhaust up into the car. You might not ever realize it, but you are. I would never idle with the pipe like that. There is a reason exhaust fumes are piped the whole way back under the car and out. Its so you don't DIE.

You expect this stuff from the honda communities but this is ridiculous. A washer mod?

Save $300 and buy the nameless performance exhaust. This mod is truly childish and dangerous.

I do agree that its a stupid idea to do what he did but they don't put it there so you don't DIE. I had a cammed Camaro with a cutout that was almost exclusively open when I drove it and I'm still alive.

If you want to let exhaust leak directly under your car, be my guest. Granted you won't die but lets not pretend like its a good idea. I don't want to breathe it in when I don't have to and neither should this guy.

If that cutout was harmful, then why do diesel trucks often have the exhaust right behind the cabin? Why dont we die in bumper to bumper traffic after 3 hours? There would be a death every 29 sec in jersey if that was true... Its still in a ventilated area, even if released under the car.

Almost every other car NEEDS a muffler to not sound like an angry bee or to be overly obnoxious. We happen to be lucky enough (sedans anyway) that the sound before the muffler sounds good, even if its a bit loud.

Is this mod classy? Hell no. Does it produce a good sound with minimal, nay no, side effects? YES.

That's a really good point. Catalytic converters remove all of the Carbon Monoxide. Right...

just to give credit where it's due - it's known as the 'Hogzaust' Mod (from the Legacy community iirc?)

toss just 2 or 3 washers in, sounds as good, doesnt leak as much, and heck, temporary solution while you decide on other mods - your car, enjoy it however you want!

check out the nameless muffer delete. i've got it and its appropriately priced--plus you remove some weight.
X2 on the Nameless. I installed it on my car and it looks and sounds great. The price and service from Nameless is second to none.

Side note, this only works with the sedan, a cut out on the hatch sounds horrid...
how would it sound different? they have the same engine after all...

and OP why wouldnt you just get a nameless performance axelback? those things are dirt cheap

That s completely untrue. Hook a hose from your muffler to your cabin and let ne know how that works out. And as for heavy traffic. People don't die because the exhaust isn't being released under the car.

Quote:
In the past, before air-quality regulations and catalytic converters, suicide by carbon monoxide poisoning would often be achieved by running a car's engine in a closed space such as a garage, or by redirecting a running car's exhaust back inside the cabin with a hose. Motor car exhaust may have contained up to 25% carbon monoxide. However, catalytic converters found on all modern automobiles eliminate over 99% of carbon monoxide produced.[45] As a further complication, the amount of unburned gasoline in emissions can make exhaust unbearable to breathe well before losing consciousness.
cool story bro

do some research, you would probably run out of gas before you died

Carbon monoxide in the cabin won't do anything to you? I wonder why people are successful killing themselves in their closed garages with running cars...

OP...please restore our faith in humanity and get a $200 nameless system if you must.

Wow you guys are just like vw vortex. New name Nasivortex?

The only way anyone would tell that he put those washers in is if you already knew, or looked under the car. It sounds good considering the price. He isn't going to die from it. How dumb can you be to think that you are going to die from that at the back of the car that is moving 95% of the time which means the exhaust will have a hard time leaking into the cabin, which is sealed up pretty well. Don't believe me close your windows at 70mph and your ears will pop.

Celery-GT is correct new cat's take out 99% of of the CO. Also by that logic a few of you have stated you have a better chance of dieing from sitting behind a car in a traffic jam that is blowing all its exhaust fumes in your cars front end.

You're all just a bunch of keyboard warriors.

You're kidding, right? I'm a FF/Paramedic and see this EVERY winter. I'll make sure to log what kind of car it is for you.

Use your head. Catalytic converters have improved but nothing's changed. Cars still use internal combustion engines that produce incomplete combustion, resulting in carbon monoxide. I hope you're really not this clueless. Why don't you pump your exhaust into your closed bedroom tonight and see if you wake up tomorrow. I expect this will be your last post.
