    Hey all, so apparently I need a new exhaust.. not sure the extent of it yet since I’m gonna have to take it to a muffler shop. But I was looking around for exhaust recommendations. Not sure if I’ll need a full exhaust with cat or just a cat back(I may not know what I’m talking about here). My...

    Found a muffler for my Gen1 but the guy selling wanted to sell as a pair, so this extra one had to go. I had the same exact muffler installed on my car, muffler shop had no problems installing it. $40 plus shipping. It's a used muffler, nothing wrong, rust free from sunny California. Will cut...

    Hey guys and gals.I have a 2012 cruze 1.4 and I had an exhaust shop delete the muffler and replace it with pipe and I LOVE the deep sound and the loudness with no rasp.But I have been thinking that I would honestly prefer the exhaust to be just a little bit louder but also just as deep as it...

    I recently took my car to a muffler shop to get a muffler put on and was denied because they had none for my car and instead was told i would have to get a whole 800 dollar exhaust system. Has Anyone replaced their muffler ? Am not looking for power gains just want to hear my car. Would do a...
  7. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    So I been getting a code on my 15 cruze,p0171 I believe.. system to lean. So I take it to my local dealer and they process to tell me they don't know the problem... and can't figure it out because I have a flowmaster muffler on? Makes sense-.-.. anyoje else had this problem?
  8. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    No kidding. I have driven the car several thousand miles since I did my custom muffler delete and have averaged a 2-3mpg gain in fuel economy. Maybe this is a rarity, or some voodoo magic, but it happened. I guess my stock exhaust was just that restrictive, but I am sharing because $30ish...
  9. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Anyone know what the weight of the factory muffler is as compared to performance mufflers. I know when I replaced the factory muffler on my 97 Saturn, with a budget Magnaflow performance muffler, I save at least 25 pounds, which I attributed to my 2-3 mpg improvement. I am hoping for some...
  10. Gen1 Powertrain
    After much research, reading the forums, into getting a performance muffler for my 2012 6spd turbo, I still have one sorta big question I haven't seem to have found an answer for. My local muffler guy who has installed many brand name performance mufflers on my other vehicles over the years, all...
  11. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Finally got some time to take vids of my muffler delete + dual exhaust. Enjoy!
  12. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Helping out at a friend's shop this week we pulled Scarlet in after work today and did my very first mod that involved more than just removing something: muffler delete - with duals! Took about 4 hours of experimenting, fitting, etc. for the T and second tailpipe, but the results are just what...

    Hi everyone, Like many on this forum, I too was interested in doing a simple muffler delete replaced by straight pipe/tip. Went today to get a quote and the reputable shop here wants $200. They said the sleeve alone would cost $165 plus the piping and labor. This seems far too much for a simple...
  14. Gen2 Powertrain
    So here's the video of my 2016 Cruze LT-RS with a muffler delete done to it with a Wicked brand exhaust tip added that has its own mini resonator in it to cut down on drone while cruising on the highway. My goal was to make it so I can hear the car but to try and avoid that Honda fart can...
  15. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I got a 2011 Cruze LT RS with the trifecta tune, K&N, and muffler and resonator deleted but I'm thinking of putting a muffler back on it don't know which brand or type to go with! I would like something that sounds close to stock when in idol but something that has some throat when in WOT! Can...
  16. Cruze Owner Projects
    On my 2016 Cruze LS, I plan on doing a Muffler Delete but I was wondering if it sounds better with the stock exhaust to remove just the front or rear muffler or remove both mufflers?
  17. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    Hey guys, I deleted my muffler about 3 months ago now then deleted the resonator the next day! I don't mind the sound but now that it's warmer, I'm sure the warm air in the engine is the cause of it being much quieter than it was in the winter! I'm looking for a quieter sound while idol but...

    I have a 2014 1.4t LT RS, I want to do a muffler delete just by simple cutting on the muffler, are there any downfalls or issues towards that..?
  19. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Okay guys, I have a trubends 2.5" stainless straight pipe exhaust coming in the mail soon and I plan on deleting the 2nd cat, the stock resonator and the muffler but I am concerned about making too much noise. I have been considering installing a LARGE magnaflow muffler (#14716) AND a Dynomax VT...
  20. Gen1 Appearance, Body, Detailing, & Interior
    I have a 2015 Cruze RS, and I was curious how to get the dual exhaust look without having to purchase a complete exhaust system. I didn't know if it already had a dual exhuast being covered up by the rear body kit or it could only be achieved by getting a full exhaust system.
