Question Remove stock muffler - put on straight pipe - how loud?

If I were to remove just the rear muffler from my '00 RS and put on a straight pipe, how loud would it be? Anyone ever try this?

Just curious.

plenty...if you search for "straight pipe of DOOM" you will find vid with a straight pipe in it. (with my friend Jesse's 2.2L)

Its pretty damn loud, and might get you in trouble witht the sound police.

If someone could host it, I have a really good clip of my car without the muffler.

Dont do this, it actually hurts performance, and its terribly loud. I had a straight pipe and an unresonated Stromung midpipe, and when I put on a Stromung muffler, it had gobs more power..

you can do it if you want, but everything he said is 100% true. There is Zero bottom end and the top end isn't there either. I took my muffler off last week one day just cause I wanted to hear it. So I drove around some untravelled snowy Twp. roads. If you do it, I suggest not driving anywhere remotely urban.

I disagree, thats about 50% false If you put on a 2.25 pipe or even a 2.5" pipe, you could loose bottom end power. My system is 2" from the cat back when I install my temporary "track only" straight pipe and the first thing I noticed was NO MORE BOGGING from a start... I have an EJ18 and not an EJ25 though, so perhaps that is the difference in that reguard.

Anyhow, heres a vid of what it would sound like:

It sounds MUCH different on my car (no, thats not my car) due to my borla headers.

Heres a pic of the muffler off the car as well:

No bogging, but that doesn't mean you have more power.
With the muffler on, you have ultimately more power, no matter how much the bogging has increased. I was skeptical at first but, I proved myself wrong. I really don't see any benefits of having the straight pipe. Although I'm am not saying you shouldn't do it.
If you think it helps, so be it. I did love the sound.

Yowzers!

As I leave for work at 5am, methinks I'll be foregoing the straight pipe. I'd like some more sound, but definitly not THAT much At the same time, I don't wanna drop 300+ for a Borla or Stromung.

Seems like there's never a cheap way out - used to be $15 down at the auto parts store for a Thrush muffler and a couple of clamps and you were good to go - plus you got that cool sticker with it
