Yes it will sound amazing get an induction kit to increase your engine sound
IT is made to reflect sound back to the muffler to cancel sound out, so the sound you hear is what dodge wants you to hear. if you take it off, your factory muffler will sound like, loud, but you can get a singel after market muffler that is quiet with out the resonator.Even a new oem muffler will be loud, so go with an after market that works alone with out the resonator. Rember its a family van. Quiet is better.
To a point, exhaust systems are such a personal preference choice. What type of sound do you like? There are a ton of cat back systems for just about every car on the planet. Personally, I hate cherry bombs and glass packs. But a lot of people really like the sound. Go online to Flowmaster, Dynomax, and other companies. A lot of them have sound clips now to give you an idea of what the muffler sounds like.
Go to a muffler shop and have it welded back on or replaced
you don't need a muffler on any car but if you don't have a muffler on your car it's going to sound like a drag racer and that can bring the cops due to the noise and disturbing the peace --------------------- true you dont need them, BUT, the key is a big long resonator about half way back, mufflers do some work at keeping sound down, but the resonator is the biggest factor. I used to run straight pipe all the way back, and its loud, never got pulled over. I had a 12in resonator installed and now its a nice deep growl that doesn't get very loud.
I'm guessing you mean a cat back exhaust with a cherry bomb muffler? It's either a bolt-on deal if you find a kit for your car, or you have a muffler shop install it, or you can do it yourself. If you look at kits for other cars you can get an idea of what you'll need which is basically everything from your catalytic converter back, hence the term "cat-back". So a new pipe from your cat to your new muffler, then from your muffler to the ex tip. Some cars are really easy, some are a royal pita. Trucks are usually very easy because they have plenty of room under there. A lowered Honda or Camero not so much, especially a V8 where you want dual ex but it came with a single ex. If the exit of your cat is 2" then plan on using 2" pipe and muffler for the rest of the system. Cherry Bomb mufflers suck, at least all the ones I've seen. Buy something like a DynoMax Race Flo, they flow so much better and sound better too. Just look thru the two mufflers if you don't believe me, the Race Flo obviously flows much better. Also avoid any muffler with louvers that protrude into the passage, they look like a cheese grater and they kill power, trust me. You want a muffler with no obstructions and a full size hole thru it. All the Cherry Bombs I've seen have a much smaller hole down the center than the main pipe is, this kills power. Basically when you look thru a muffler, imagine a fire hose blowing full blast thru it, whichever one looks like it would flow the best is the one you want. So far for me that's a Race Flow. I've seen the small versions for as little as $30, and the fat ones for closer to $80. They flow the same, but the fatter they are the better they muffle the sound plus they sound deeper and meaner.
its in the back by the sphincktor valve and muffler belt in the back by the sphinctor valve and muffler belt
Normally the term is "low restriction" muffler. This means that the exhaust gasses can freely pass through the muffler with little resistance. If your term is indeed restriction muffler, then it probably refers to a tuned muffler for a 2 stroke engine. A tuned muffler is one that creates a back pressure or a pulse that runs back into the combustion chamber.
They are in the exhaust pipe system, Just start at the exhaust manifolds on the engine and work your way back to the muffler, There will be none after the muffler. They are about 3 inches long and have 1 single wire going to them. I think there is 3 of them.
Im not sure if the sound is from the wheel bearing, but my car is making a weird sound when I accelerate.It sounds like a dying cat. Or a little bird whistling. Just got the price tag on my back right wheel bearing, $475. It sounds like a loud vibration/rubbing sound, very noisy. At first I thought my muffler was going bad.
you might have a problem with your muffler have a look at it and if its hanging then it needs to be welded back on but if its not then you just need to add a muffler cap to it to help muffle the sound even more you can get one a Auto Zone
This is going to depend on what degree of quality you demand in a muffler, and how much of the system needs to be replaced. If you need new pipe from the header on back, and you need to replace hangers, it's going to be real expensive. I'd take the car in to a muffler shop for an estimate and go from there. FriPilot
yes, a muffler is designed along with exahust pipe to create proper amount of back pressure
Normally, the muffler will be in the back of the car. If you are looking towards the front, or upstream from the muffler, then you should see 1 or possibly 2 catalytic converter(s).
Are you referring to a loud exhaust sound? If so, it could be (Going from the engine back to the tailpipe) a cracked or leaking exhaust manifold - a leaking exhaust pipe - a leaking catalytic converter - a leaking muffler. That covers the exhaust system. If you are talking about a noisy clattering sound in the engine, you could possibly need a valve adjustment.
yes because the fumes will polute the air more. Wrong The correct answer is below. The Muffler controls the volume of sound or the tone or pitch of the exhaust leaving the engine. The Catalytic Converter removes harmfull particles and gases. This is auto pollutions control 101. Removing the muffler can increase horse power and might decrease backflow pressure which influences the torgue of the engine. Some vehicles need more back pressure or less back pressure to influence torque. The factory usually uses the muffler for ascetic reasons low volume or a correct tone/pitch to a vehicle so it will have the "right sound". But removing the muffler can mean a freer flowing exhaust; which can help some vehicles especially diesels lower their exhaust gas temperatures which can make the engine remain cooler during towing situations.
It will be in the exhaust system about half the way back. It looks like a muffler but it will be before the muffler. It is closer to the engine.
its on the back of the muffler
Any engine needs back pressure to run efficiently. That is what the mufflers do, they create back pressure. So, by removing the muffler(s), you have stopped the back pressure, which in turn causes the engine not to run efficiently.
Yes, because without one, the noise of the engine or motor would be too loud, and the muffler serves a purpose of applying back pressure for compression.
If it is just muffler tip then it doesn't matter, it is just there for looks so whatever you like. I have a megaflow CAT-back on mine.
Having a free flow muffler will help improve fuel economy. In most mufflers on the market the air flow is by having the exhaust air take two 180 degree turns u turns. This restricts the airflow and causes immense back pressure. Having a straight through airflow muffler will improve mileage which is just like removing a muffler. By removing a muffler there is reduction in weight and improvement in back pressure. You may be cited for driving without a muffler, as it is required for noise control and pollution control.
I replaced the cracked/rusted cat conv on my 94 geo metro and ran a straight pipe to the previously installed new muffler (rear half of car). *Then the exhaust noise was very loud and started to make a raspy metal sound at certain rpm's (like when accelerating). It seemed like the car 'lost' some power at higher speeds 100km (65MPH) and struggled up hills. *The muffler shop said I just had a cheap muffler and these small engines designed to have multiple resonator chambers (cat conv and muffler). So I bought a universal cat conv and had it installed. The exhaust noise is now whisper quite from front of engine to behind rear seat, then can hear the raspy louder sound (like the cheap want-to-be hot rod sound on cars) * I'm wondering if it's possible to 'blow' a muffler by using straight pipe (without extra back pressure?) of cat conv ?
Bats use sound by sending a sound wave to the object or prey that is going to approch,the sound wave bonces of of the prey and goes back to the bat. The sound wave that goes back to the bat tells the bat how far away the bat is and how fast it is approching the bat.
no it is not normal you need to have it cheak as soon as possible it could be a mis fire in the motor or you need muffler work dun
