    Well got tired of my exhaust being so quite so I sort of ghetto rigged it. I hate to do it but I wanted it loud for a day or so. I just took the h pipe loose at the back and pushed it up so only one of the sides of the flange were hooked up. Then tightened it down. It loud inside the car but sounds decent when I get on it. Anybody else ever done this???

    I used to do that once in awhile at the track on my old 91 LX I had. Never really noticed a gain, friend of mine in his 92 LX used to do it and gain 1-2 tenths...go figure.

    yeah, i had to do that when i put my h-pipe on cause i didnt have any new bolts, so my stock catback was disconnected till i got to napa and it made it so much louder. it was pretty cool. because of that i thought about putting in some cutouts for when im in a really loud mood.

    Why not just puncture your mufflers a few times? LOL
    It can't honestly sound that great, all it is , is an exhaust leak, right?

    My thoughts exactly, and I have never heard an exhaust leak that sounded good.
