Well on my last trip offroad my tail pipe once again got caught on something and one thing came to another and my muffler was ripped off. I dont mind the sound, I actually like the loudness. My question is will it hurt anything for me to not run a muffler? I have the cat still on. I dont really feel any power loss, I was just concerned about back pressure.
Also another question is, do any of you have a problem with your tailpipe getting caught while navigating unusual terrain? I have had two come off the frame bracket deal and get bent to hell. Is there anything I can do to avoid this from happening again?
no chrome tips the first one was almost like the stock one, the turn down but it stuck down a little further than the stock so it was just a matter of time before it got caught. This one stuck out past the bumper about 2-3 inches. I tried to get it fitted as close to the bumper as I could so i could minimize the chance of it coming off. If anyone has pictures that would help me out.
i dont have any fumes at all and i like it because its a bit louder with my flowmaster delta 50. I didn't like how the end shrunk so much when it was rounded off so i cut the whole thing off. It sounds like the air is ripping through just to get out compared to before where air was trapped inside the bottle neck.
I dont see a problem running without a muffler unless its way too loud. You shouldnt have a problem if its not loud.
i heard cherry bombs sound quite nice Many people from the previus forum that i was at (miata forum = old car) had those installed.. simply said 4 bangers sounded like a mustang with a supercharger since the 1.8 miata engine has a sweet wine to it at 4 to 7k rpm
Yeah I got a cherrybomb glasspack, it was too long and the muffler shop only had cherrybomb turbos in the size and offset I needed. So I went ahead and just got that and a custom cut non-ripoff slant tip. haha, Ill get pictures, this one shouldnt get caught on anything.
