Aftermarket Exhaust

I am looking for a cheap way to get a louder muffler sound and the advantage of better flow through the stock system. I am looking at a way that I can just "cut-out" the factory muffler, and install a aftermarket one. Anyone done this yet? The stock muffler is in the middle of hte exhaust but I am thinking I can just cut it out and add some pipe? Looking at Flowmaster 52455 muffler...

you can take it to a muffler shop and they can run new pipe out further and put the muffler towards the back. just call around.

the challenge with that is it is normally at least $500, that has been my experience installing a custom exhaust on a full size truck (dual exhaust) I can pickup the muffler for right around $100, if I can just get a small piece of exhaust pipe and extend the outlet of the muffler to reach the factory pipe it would be reasonably cheap..

Should be able to get the pipe from "HondaZone" (autozone) that will convert the outlet/inlet from the exhaust to the size of the factory and you can get the clamps to keep it on. Backyard Customs all the way.

i had a local shop cut out the resonator and stock muffler and install a flowmaster 40. they were able to use much of the stock pipe and it cost me only $200
