Im going to get a catback with a single muffler and was looking at just putting the muffler on at the end of the exhaust instead of the center with straight pipe after it.

Apparently this is supposed to cut out alot of the drone?? But will it make it quiter aswell??

Does it really matter where you put your muffler on your exhaust??

Will probably be louder in the car.
And yes, it does matter where they go.

In my understanding, there is resonance at different rpm.. as revs rise the resonance moves further down the pipe. That's why 'they' put mufflers or resonators at different points in the exhaust.
You'll probably get more drone or gurgle with less mufflers/resonators.
( :ranting: pet hate.. honda's with raspy gurglie exhausts)

For my Ute with a very decent cam (.500" 220-230 @ .50"), ported heads, 10:1 c/r, 3000rpm Hi stall and Pacemaker headers - I won't bother with resonators close to the engine.
It'll be twin 2" to a good merge into 2 1/2" into a good straight thru muffler, over the diff into a straight thru .. Or twin 2 1/4" into 3" .. haven't decided that one yet
Any thoughts guys? :help:

Okay sorta changed my mind.

Want to get 2.5" with just a hotdog.. Now im assuming this would be LOUD.. which is what i want.. but i dont want it to sound bad... ive seen so many videos and sound clips of bad v6 exhausts :unsure:

Would putting the hotdog in the centre or at the rear sound better?? Anybody done this??

By the way i've got stock manifolds and cat

The Cat acts like a resonator ;)
