    Default Exhaust noise!

    Other than buying a new set up is there any ways to reduce the noise of my exhaust? It's so loud. It sounds great when you're booting it but pulling off and idling around town it's so loud and sounds ****. What can I do to reduce the sound? It's a scorpion decat.

    Thanks

    Put a center silencer in, will reduce the cabin drone and quieten it down. Different silencers for different jobs, can get a reflection one which redirect exhaust flow through chambers in the silencer or you can get an absorption type which essentially has noise absorbing material around the center pipe in the silencer.
