Default Middle muffler? Who needs it?

Ok. 96 900s 2.3l n/a. Middle muffler, if was to be a strait pipe, how loud would it be? Would this make make a difference in performance? And would the sound be fart can or "sporty" Or like a g37? lol

it would make a small difference in the performance and it will be a little bit louder too, but not in a bad way, it will sound nice.

it will be more "throaty" if you will, not ricy. you will not see any gains. ah g35/37's and vw r32's for that matter... most beautiful sounding modern street car. a 4cyl car will never sound like that

I have no resonator on my 06 and the sound isnt much louder, but you do get a lot more of the "burble". There is no highway "drown" and you cant tell the difference unless the windows are down and you are really listening for it. I am sure the NG900 crew will chime in for more specific feedback on your car.

I also have straight pipe from headers to back of the car on my C900....same idea, isnt too loud and no highway annoyances!

Hope this helps so what

Drew

Thanks. I said g37 because somebody wanted to know how to make a saab sound like one. I like the burble so that would work.

it would be sporty, but not like a g37, and probably not a big noticably difference in performance, unless it was clogged

Why do people like the sound of a g37? I personally dont like it at all, but that's just me i guess

Absolutely agree! My dad just got a G37 and right from the factory, the exhaust sounds fantastic. Not too loud under easy driving but when you get on it, the sound just errupts. To make this Saab related, now I want to get a nice exhaust for my Viggen
