[DML] Re: DMCH's Performance Exhaust


I listened to the audio clip also.  It is a good try at recording the sound but what you don't 
here is the very tin can sound  it makes especially during a cold idle right after startup. 

You also get an annouyingly loud tin can popcorn machine when decelerating withyour 
foot off the gas pedal. This is why I changed the muffler. It smoothed the tone down 
somewhat  and helped reduce the popcorn effect.    Sorry I don't have an mp3 recorder to 
capture the sound. But I can say I am much happier with the results. it's very accepable to 
me now.  It Is still throaty but a soother tone.    You maybe very happy with the sound the 
stock DMCH system makes. It just was a little beyond comfortable to me thats all.  Stephen 
has said they were going to look into developing a custom muffler that was quieter maybe 
next year. I just decided not to wait any longer.
