Muffler Delete

Hey guys, iam thinking doing the muffler delete. However the muffler guy said he has done it on a 335 before and said its REALLY loud, is it true?? Also i plan on getting the 3.7 TI tips from cyba would there be problem welding them onto the straight pipes?

the muffler delete will be way too loud and it'll drone like crazy too. not to mention that it kind of makes it sound like a ricer w/ a fartcan... get magnaflow mufflers or something instead if you want it cheap

Have any of you guys heard a 335 without mufflers? It doesnt sound rice at all. Please dont randomly say things just for the sake of saying them.

I have my mufflers off, because I wanted some noise before deciding which aftermarket to get. I decided not to get aftermarket now, and just leave them off. Its quieter then a mustang gt for reference, I tested side by side.

Any mustang or muscle car is louder. The sound is good and throaty and not rice.

Actually it Sounds Great not much drone in personally. i have a buddy did muffler delete on his 335xi. (it cost him $250+ with 2 X 4'' magnaflow tips.) Unfortunately, the car was sold few month ago. otherwise i can post a sound clip here.

I just did the muffler delete and it does drone quiet a bit but its not too bad for my taste. However the car does sound a shit load meaner. Its kind of like a louder g35/350z sound without the fake purrrr... Here is the thread where you can get a sound clip. In person, its a bit louder...

Here are a couple of examples of the sound with the secondary cats deleted:

You will not have any problems with error codes or anything since you are not messing with the primary cats.
