Around here, as loud as You can bare it! We have so many Pusstangs here that run open header or with shitty mufflers that do nothing. Just the same with straight piped trucks, dont wotty until you get pulled over.

I suppose you could always run it into a standard muffler but before that install a cutout that you could open it up whenever you want. Later on down the road maybe even get an electric one so you never have to get out of the car to open it. It'd be somewhat quiet when you don't want to annoy people but open it up when you're at the track.

Dont get something ricey tho. Get a muffler or exhaust thats deep and mean sounding like the borla or even a vibrant muffler.

i'm gonna have to beg the differ with you on that one. I can almost bet he didn't make you deaf. it may have been loud and annoying, but i highly doubt u got deaf from someone playing their music next to you unless you leaned out ur window to take a peak inside :lol:
