Hi,

Why not mke the title 'Louder Exhaust Options' ?

To go louder you can add performance headers and performance/racing catalytic converters, custom made back box with less internal baffles/sound absorption material.

I suggest you look at specialist exhaust manufacturers and have a system made up for you depending on how loud you want to go.

Cheers, Dennis!
