need new exhaust, deeper sound

I am going to need a new exhaust system for my 1.7. Mine is rusted out. Granted, it only has 80hp (+/-), but is there an exhaust muffler/tail pipe setup that will give it a deeper sound.

Looking for options.....thanks

I have heard good things about the tangerine racing 4cyl mufflers.

Bring money. They aren't cheap--but they are works of art and will likely outlast the rest of the car.

Realistically, any aftermarket exhaust will make the exhaust tone louder. The exact sound of each can be different (and will change with RPM in particular) so your best bet is to find a car that has a sound you like and ask what muffler and exhaust they're running.

SSI exchangers tend to be louder than stock, likely due to having less mass to damp out the sound waves than the stockers. I'm not entirely thrilled with the change those made, but I am thrilled with them not being super rusty like the stock exchangers I replaced.

The Bursch I have is pretty decent, if a bit loud for my taste. I have what has been called "a pretty blown-out" stock muffler that I may wind up going back to for class rules if I ever start tracking my car again. Its sound is similar to the Bursch but lower I think.

Hey Dave,

Thanks for your input. You are right. They are not cheap. I am going to look into what you have. Just weighing options. I need to get something done. Just don't want to break the bank.

deep sound from a /4 = triad

Best deep sound for the money I found. Used to have one on my slightly modded 2.0 running carbs...until i went nutty and decided to do a /6 conversion!
