Default Exhaust Video on my V10

I decided to shoot a quick video from my camera of my exhaust. (not the best quality audio). I know how frustrating it was researching an what setup to go with when choosing an exhaust for my V10. Especially cause they sound so odd...

I decided to replace the entire exhaust and remove my rattling cats and go with a two into one Dynomax Ultraflow muffler. I think it sounds good. Definitely a great idle and sound very similar to a worked diesel. It is very loud though. Dont know if I would like it as daily driver but as a weekend warrior it suits my needs fine. The big V10 no longer sounds like a Honda Civic. When on the highway surprisingly it isnt very loud but during heavy throttle it wakes up the neighborhood. Its definately alot more responsive...



along with some photos

I like it!!! That really is a great solution to the weird 10 cylinder sound.

Did you put in duals and a crossover pipe?

Thanks. The 10 Cylinders sound like such crap... I heard some with flowmasters and to me they kind of sounded like hopped up rice rockets. At low throttle inputs it really sounds like diesel... lol

I went with a single muffler because I originally thought I was just going to change the muffler and ordered from the muffler back, then cut out the cats, then saw my flanges were rotted, then changed the passenger side manifold. It was a Pandoras box... Didnt want to spend alot of money but wound up spending it anyway. SHould have went duals but I am satisfied for now. The V-10 has a factory 2 inlet single outlet muffler which would have made duals easy but oh well...
