Default Exhaust silencers

Is there a way to quiet/silence an exhaust system temporarily? I was thinking of getting the AWE catback track edition, but I don't want to deafen the neighborhood as I work graveyard shift.

Rubber band some thick socks on the mouth of your exhaust, that way they'll muffle it at low rpms but you can get rid of them once you hit the road by revving high. No need for manual labor!

Either find an exhaust that there are silencers made for, find an exhaust that is quieter all the time, as you probably won't want to be swapping sooty silencers in and out all the time, or have an electronic cutout welded in, so you can go loud when wanted.

My old car had a loud HKS exhaust, so I used a silencer for road trips and such, it helped for sure, but made a noticeable change in response.

Get a quieter exhaust. You're not gaining any power with a loud ass exhaust. You are gaining hearing loss and annoying your neighbors and garnering the attention of the police. Get off my front lawn ya damn kids.

Not here to make power currently. And i dont think the sound would be annoyingly loud either, that and I was thinking of putting in sound deadening materials wherever noise could possibly come from. I just like exhaust notes a lot lmao. And where I'm at, I don't think I'd be attracting any cops at all, 99% of the people I work with have straight piped diesels.

I have the Invidia Q300 catback bolted to my car. it's one of the quieter aftermarket catbacks out there. That said, when I start my car in the morning, it's quite loud. Cold starts are loud no matter which exhaust is chosen. Nature of the beast, so to speak. And cold starts are what your neighbors will hear.
