Yeah I went back to gutted stock cat exhaust.... any aftermarket exhaust is just too loud on these.
With this baffle installed, it sounds great. Even with the smallest baffle installed, it was too loud and in my opinion, sounded like crap. It's only $20 On 1320s site, and we'll worth it!If you have the 1320 V2 exhaust with the changeable baffels this option worked for me.
I think you'll be happy with it. I've put 3,000 miles on mine, and it seems to be getting mellowed. Nice sound.Thanks everyone. I do not have the exhaust with the interchangeable baffles. The manufacturer had emailed me about the new 'quiet' baffle, and said it can be welded into my pipe (according to them I'll have to cut a little off the pipe too).
I was debating getting the exhaust with the baffles, in case this new baffle was too quiet. But a lot of people say even the quietest baffle that came with the interchangeable exhaust it was too loud. That's why they made a fourth 'quiet' baffle. Right now I'm planning on ordering the baffle, welding it in, and hoping I like the sound!
I recently installed the welter 2 1/2" stealth with high flow cat and it is way too loud. Welter has been great and has been redesigning the system, changing the last resonator to a y pipe with two muffler /baffles to keep the same flow rate. I have not received them yet but this should cut the sound way down.
I'm interested in this muffler too. My only concerns are if Alpha is staying in business and if there are any still available.Update:
I took the SS to my exhaust guy, who I've used for many years. He modified the springs and brackets so it doesn't bounce around as much. He shortened the pipe because I had scraped it a couple times already, even being careful (this was lower than the stock, and we have some steep parking lot entrances). He installed the baffle. I can't tell much difference, to tell you the truth. My son said he thinks it's a little quieter.
I told my wife when we were driving the other day that it may be an 'old man' thing, but if something looks fast, feels fast, and is fast, than it ought to sound fast.
I may try the alpha variable muffler, sounds like the best of both worlds.
