Default new exhaust

Hi,

Today I finely got my exhaust finished!
It wasn't easy as I wanted something more "free flowing" than OEM but I also wanted it to be silent.

First I've got:
- 60.3mm SS piping
- OBX header
- HKS resonator
- no name stainless steel muffler (straight through)

It was far too much loud... Unbearable at any speed.
In order to keep things bearable I added exhaust silencer in the muffler tips and the muffler was open in order to give it a turbo muffler internals. It worked, the noise was down (but still too much for me) but it was also very restrictive...
What's the point of a performance exhaust if the muffler tips are plugged...

So I bough a dynomax super turbo 17747.

And it's perfect! My legend is once again silent but with a more deep exhaust.

So now I have:
- 60.3mm SS piping
- OBX header
- HKS resonator
- dynomax super turbo 17747

The video hereafter gives a hint at the sound level, but the sound is deeper and better in reality.

I had a bunch of in cab resignation with my exhaust. I put a moroso spiral flow in-line, and it solved all my problems. Same exhaust tone, but eliminated 90% of the noise in the car. Your exhaust sounds great!

I saw those spiral flow in-line. But I wanted to be certain that the sound would be low so I bough the dynomax. Despite the "turbo" design, it is really free flowing.
