Many drivers love the deep growl of a loud exhaust, and there are a variety of ways you can achieve it.
The most common ways to enhance the sound of your exhaust include:
  • Replacing the muffler with a straight muffler that will make the exhaust come out directly
  • Aftermarket exhaust will maximize airflow and increase sound
  • An exhaust tip is a cost-effective method that will amplify the sound of your vehicle
  • Turbo chargers, while a more expensive option, will boost engine power and increase vehicle efficiency
  • Catback exhaust, a popular and inexpensive method, will increase your engine’s horsepower
  • Increasing the bore of your exhaust pipe by half an inch will produce louder and deeper sounds
Although each option can produce excellent sound amplifying results, it’s recommended that you read your vehicle’s manual and consult a professional technician before implementing any sound enhancers to your vehicle for the best results.
