Try putting the stock muffler back in. It'll still sound aggressive....

Seems like our Box volume's are all over the board.

My stock 2000 S is so quiet that if it were not for the de-snorkel,I would be invisible!

With some research,the perfect volume solution with non drone will fall out of the sky for all of us.

The Pedro mod is the best for sure (besides the weight). I would put the sock exhaust back on but I tossed it. I'm an anti-hoarder if I don't think I'm going to use something within the next few months I toss it(oops). I think I'm going to have a muffler shop replace the glass packs with something more substantial. That or I'm going to paint the car like a blue angle and get some sweet head sets for me and my passenger to use. The girl friend will love it...
