is there anyway to dampen the sound of an exhaust. i changed my exhaust and it's REALLY loud right now. it's to the point where it's annoys me like crazy on the highway or whenever i accelerate. i was just wondering if dynamat would help reduce this drone or if there was something else that you could put in between your trunk or the back seats to reduce this noise inside the car??

EDITproblem solved. bought a silencer and the inside of the cabin sounds as quiet as it was with the stock exhaust.

all those other methods don't work (ie:foam core in the truck, dynamat, etc)

it's a custom exhaust i had a shop make for me.

yeah i don't really care about the outside of the car. i just want the inside to be a little more quite.

Is it leaking? My exhaust is LOUD. I can drown out the sound of Harley's. But with the windows rolled up most of the sound should be outside the car. When the exhaust went on the civic, it was loud as hell inside the car because the leak was under the car.

If it's really that loud make sure there are no leaks under the car.

Hey Wino, I know turbos actually decrease the sound of the exhaust...but would it actually decrease the drone inside the cabin as well? If so that would be awesome...The toyomoto catback is a monster and sounds so good. But anything 2-3k rpms is drone hell.

Also, tell SRT to send my fucking kit! :pissed: It's getting ridiculous

i don't think it's SRT's fault. it's turbonetic's fault.

Well...I guess running out of turbos is one thing turbonetics can be blamed for. But the fact that SRT didn't have more to4e's in stock beforehand is their fault. I've been waiting almost a half year for the damn turbo kit and the only thing I have are clamps, connectors and some electronics. I have NO other hardware at all. It's driving me crazy

Hey well...I helped biatch :wink:

Tell Mo if I don't get my kit in three weeks, i'll drive down to MD and deliver the kit to myself. I knew they were bad with shipping but SHIT I would not have bought this kit if I knew I wouldn't have even received the damn thing today. Instead I pay $5000+ for a product and get dicked around for half a year :roll: Thanks SRT....
