Making my stock exhaust louder

A friend told me i can drill a few holes in my stock can to make it a little louder. Will this work? If so will it effect anything else?

I heard that it works, although I've never heard how it actually sounds. Why don't you just be patient and save up for a slip on?

Personally, drilling holes in your exhaust to make it a little louder seems really cheesy.

i had to cut mine to get to the inside to make it straight through.

below is a very horrible rendering of the internals of the stock muffler



so basically in order to do this you'd either need a drill bit that would go into the tailpipe at the exit to drill a bunch of holes or cut off along the rear weld and drill holes in the inside wall like a honeycomb for the exhaust to just go straight through. thus requiring a welder to seal it all back up.

and even after that the exhaust is pretty tinny and raspy. your better off saving up n gettin a decent slip-on.


if need b i can cut my stocker back apart to snap some pics. im currently running a jardine can so i dont need my stock anymore.

Hehe. noob schooling the noob.

Save up for a slip-on. It's well worth it.

When I got my Arata I thought I would see how the stock exhaust sounded modded before installing new exhaust. So I took a piece of steel and beat out the baffle in the stock can. It was a little louder but never sounded as good as even a cheap slip on does.

save $500 & get a decent slip-on, a stock muffler costs more than $350 new, think you guys have a lousy stock muffler? you should se the JDM spec mufflers they are less than 1" big & so very quiet.

I agree... Don't waste your time and just buy a slip-on when ya got the $$$.

I did this to my exhaust and it is louder. I agree with saving up for a slip-on, but this is a good (read "cheap") method to increase the sound while you save up.
