For those that have done the muffler delete what did you pay to have this done and what were the materials used.
I replaced the stock TI exhaust with the Madness Lusso exhaust (muffler delete) It came with high-quality stainless steel piping, resonator and CF tips. $1600.00. I had a local custom muffler shop do the install that cost about $200.For those that have done the muffler delete what did you pay to have this done and what were the materials used.
What's the impact on emission inspections too?Are these ti or qv prices?
I'm not very technical, is this a cheaper option that a full exhaust replacement that gets closer to the sound improvements.
Would this still create the "pops" that are ooh so satisfying, and if so, more or less of them?
Concern is unnecessary...if...you get a reputable shop to install a system from the middle slip joint back and save the old system by removing vs cutting out. The cheap end may involve cutting at the muffler and welding on a short pipe or two. A more expensive muffler delete can run up to $400-500 for aluminiumized or $600-700 for stainless tubing. On the cheap end, you can see as low as $120. A lot of the cost is dependent upon the shop and its normal business. I spent on the high end at a shop that caters to hot rodders and is know nationwide. My exhaust is stored safely for reinstallation.Yes, spending $1000 for a cat back system is a lot more than a simple $170 muffler delete. However, I have the option of putting the stock system (that I saved) back on at any time without any welding involved making it truly stock. That is a concern I have regarding resale or if my neighbors start complaining about the cold start noise that is LOUD!.
Sometimes...Pardon my n00bness but it's a muffler delete reversible?
Hi.I’ve recently done a muffler delete on my Giulia which required a Y pipe. I still have the resonator though think I might remove that soon since though the car may be loud I would love for it to be even louder! It’s been about 6 days of me having it and I don’t regret the decision. Just in case I did keep all the parts lol. For mine I only paid $150 btw.
