I want to get a tad bit more sound from my exhaust system. I currently have the stock system.
Will cutting out the muffler and replacing it with a Magnaflow muffler with tip make it very loud? I want a very light soft sound. I drive a lot on the highway and want no droning and do not want it loud at all.. Just some umph to it... I see the Magnaflow mufflers are only like 80 dollars or so...

If you keep the second cat and the resonator then it shouldn't increase a lot. I don't think you should have droning at all either. Muffler on factory size piping shouldn't make it very much louder.

Yeah i just want a slight tone maybe a little rumble but nothing loud. I guess noticeable but not loud... I like how the stock mazdaspeed 3 exhaust sounds. That would be perfect...

How many cats are under there? 2 cats and 1 muffler? I've never really looked.

That sounds to high pitched for my taste. I think my trubendz is a lot deeper then that. Not my cup of tea. Sorry.

Looks nice... sounds a little too loud for what im looking for.
So you think if i leave everything and just swap out the muffler it should be good?
