i know there has been a few do muffler delete. i will have less low end torque cus of the back pressure but i havent heard anyone having any trouble.

personally i dont like the sound of muffler delete. too raspy sounding for me

It will sound pretty much like any other ls engine with no mufflers. You wont lose torque if you have a full pipe length.

Is it clamped or welded? If its clamped you can just take them out?

I know demonspeeder did straight pipes from the cat back. . . i actually really like the sound of it, but yea, you'd be loosing a little from lack of BP. I'll try and find the sound clips he had up quick . . . .


-----here's the clip. I should mention he's also got a K&N intake and thorley headers so it probably won't sound exactly like this . . . .

--Edit #2--after reading the comments, this is before the headers were on . . . .sorry--i'm done now

Why not just un-clamp them and start it up? Honestly going out and taking off a bolt will be a lot better then asking a bunch of people their opinions...
