It looks exactly like the original factory muffler, so i would expect a simmilar sound output?]
So no fun at all :-)

When your room is on the very corner of a steep incline street near downtown, you grow to hate those who think loud mufflers are fun. Noise pollution in the city. In the suburbs and country, go for it tho.

Just an FYI...the promotion is only going on untill October 31...

I'm sure there will be other opportunities before next summer, for now I still have too much stuff I have to get rid off before I can bring more new parts in the shed. Who wants a nice set of 15" Toyota OEM mags ?

I once lived in an old house at the intersection of two major roads with constant traffic 24 hours. The big bikes with straight pipes were the worst offenders. And the 18 wheelers, which made the whole house shake!

There's different levels of loudness and quietness. No need to be painfully loud. I just like the car to have a little better performance than stock, and not sound like a sowing machine.

Kind of interested in this too if it is a bit louder than the stock.
There you go!

Definitely sounds better/louder than stock. Do you feel any improvement in performance over the stock muffler?

It does sound a bit louder than stock, and i think that's because i have a short ram intake and a 4-2-1 exhaust manifold/header.

I really can't compare it to the OEM one because i've been using a Tababe Medalion Touring these past 2 years, and completely forgot what the original one feels like.

As for performance...it does feel like the car revs a bit more freely in the low end as opposed to my previous set-up. Really can't say for sure without a dyno though...

Not so sure then how much of that great sound is due to the Walker muffler. :-) I would however love to know what manifold you're using. How does it effect high end and low end performance in your opinion?

I don't care too much about dyno readings, as to me those are just numbers that don't tell you a lot about how a car actually behaves and feels when you sit inside and drive it.

In that vid clip you are hearing pretty much 100% muffler. The nature of that demonstration does not introduce the conditions where intake/manifold manifest themselves in sound. It is definitely louder than stock and quieter than the Medalion Touring. The Medalion burbles and rumbles at idle, and is much throatier as the RPMs climb under load.

I'm using a Weapon R 4-2-1 Manifold.

http://m.ebay.com/itm/Weapon-R-4-2-1...739?nav=SEARCH

In my opinion, it improves power at low RPM a bit, but tends to struggle on the upper-mid to high RPM range. I think it's great for a daily driver like mine. I have an auto and hadly go past 2500 in city driving now, and on the highway i tend to cruise at 3000 at 110km/h. In a manual, don't really know, but i think you'd definitly have adequate acceleration in 2nd-3rd.
