I am installing quad exhaust but I don't want them loud

Like my personality, I want to have a nice tone, but I don't want my exhaust to be loud. Right now I have one magnaflow 18416 on with resonators which is nice deep tone 1000-1500 Rpms it sounds mean. But as soon as its over 1500 Rpms it's really quiet. I love this setup. I picked another magnaflow 18416 in a package deal. It was a really good deal.
Magnaflow 18416 + Zionsville Superduty kit 2 stage fan (5000 miles)for 550. The muffler is still in the packaging the guys 540i threw a rod bearing. Anyways, I want to run quads because I love the look. It is so awesome but I don't want to get rid of the resonator. Any ideas?

Hi,

Find a good, reputable and knowledgeable exhaust specialist and speak to them about it. Custom exhaust places can and will alter the fabrications to make for quieter systems and good ones will also allow you to return after perhaps 2 weeks or so to 'adjust' the system if it's too loud or droney free of charge. Magnaflow is a reputable manufacturer as you know, so their dealers are also mindful of their reputation, so do discuss with them.

Another alternative, is to speak to Meisterschaft USA via GThaus, and see if they can do one of their systems with the switchable control flap which makes the exhaust quiet or louder and the control switch located in the cabin for you to control.

Cheers, Dennis!

Sounds exspensive. I like a loud exhaust but I would rather go with a quiet one because a quiet one is always acceptable but a loud exhaust isn't good for every situation. When I go out to drive for fun I would love a loud exhaust but sometimes I'm just commuting it would be annoying and not to mention the attention you get from a loud exhaust

Are you going to cut your spare wheel well.

Of course! How else can you do it?

No one needs a spare tire anyways. I have Fix a flat and a AAA card. If I ever have enough $ for m-pars I would probably put run flats on them.
