Hard to tell from the video, but that does sound bad in person and its loud. I fired up my hhr(le5) with the muffler cut off. Not exactly the same, but it got the point across. The only risk here is a really loud exhaust. I think a straight through muffler would give you the sound you are looking for.

Just the thing if you are 16 years old. Too bloody loud for most people, not to mention illegal.

I changed to side pipes on my GXP. They left the cat and split the exhaust right after it, one going directly to each side of the car with no muffler. The bends and pipes quiet it a bit, but it still has what I consider to be a nice sound. Louder than stock, but not outrageous. Here is a picture of how it is split.

Hey John do you have any pics or vids of your setup. Maybe the next time you guys have a meet I can see if I like the sound in person.

Brap, how do you setup a straight through muffler?
