Removal of Exhaust .... for now

Asked my diagnostics specialist here to just unbolt my rear section exhaust so removed both mufflers (they look like boats off the car they are so large) so straight piped through the resonators (they look like bazookas)... SURPRISINGLY it sounds ok.... obviously there is some noise in the cabin because it is basically dumped under the rear seats.

This is just a temporary thing so please don't start posting about messing with the back pressure and shift points lol I am very aware of all of this.

Only thing i semi dislike is cosmetically there are no more tips off the rear section. Thinking of just buying two mufflers and having the piping custom made instead of waiting for something just because I am impatient....

My question to you all is if i should do the quad tips like on the RCF or just go for the single (on both sides) with a larger tip? I am leaning towards the quad tips because i feel it looks better.

I don't mind those tips actually, what I'm not a fan of is the stock, stacked quad tips on the F!

Vids of the straight pipes PLEASE curiosity if you will...

I am leaning towards the dual tips as well! I attempted to upload a short clip but it would not work for some reason...

Looks great, but i imagine that it is quite noisy with no mufflers. May not be that bad inside the are, but the poor pedestrians you pass by on the street will have to stop their conversations while you drive by.

It really isnt that loud! You would be surprised, under load it is loud but just driving normally its not crazy loud... If i cut off the resonators, then it might get rowdy lol

someone needs to hurry up and get a custom exhaust system made. I'm sure there are some V8 and V6 guru's out there that know how to properly configure an exhaust for the RC

I would think there would be a group of RC 350 owners who would pay for something like that. It certainly seems from what I have seen on this forum that people have a lot of interest in customization.
