So I called my exhaust shop in town and they are willing to do the muffler delete for 50-75 dollars! I'm also one of those guys that wants an exterior throaty sound but not outrageously loud! Am I doing the right mod for the price to meet my requests? I'm guessing the muffler can be welded back on if I think it sounds too ricey, right?

Current mods
-Trifecta Advantage+ tune
-K&N CAI with Injen filter and pre-filter

I love the sound of the muffler delete for the price. It got a little raspy when cold but otherwise sounded very euro. It isn't aggressive, but sounds good for sure. Not a Honda by any means.

Silly question; I was looking into this for a cheap/easy mod for some extra nice noise....will this mess with emissions at all?
It shouldn't, the muffler doesn't do anything for emissions - just controls noise.

If it gets too raspy, a resonator would help calm some of that down, as well.

Just remember that a certain amount of backpressure is a good thing.
If this is a 1.4t witch I think all the rs cars are right? you can go straight pipe back and still be ok on backprssure because the turbo will always make some. Plus if he still has his cat thats the most restrictive piece in the hole exhaust. Delete that muffler!
