Exhaust gets louder and louder

After installing my s exhaust on my 08 Ive noticed it seems to be getting louder and louder. When I installed it i took the spark arrestor out. It is clearly notciable that it is getting louder. I really dont wanna put the arrestor back in so, what could be happening?

I personally don't see a problem with it. but i like open headers on loud v8's anyway. its music to my ears. just go with it, its like a harley the first thing you do is change pipes on those. the video really has no relavance here but just to give insperation to let the pipes sing.

Re: Exhaust gets louder and louder

i don't think there is packing in a stock exhaust, just baffles? maybe it's just in your head?

Re: Exhaust gets louder and louder

I have cut the stock exhaust cans open and there is no packing. Only baffles. I have drilled out the main plate to help let the exhaust gas flow better out the tip. If you look up in side there are only two holes that are feeding the tip. But then again I am using the 08 muffler and not the newer one with the turn down. But they are the same. Just one has a straight out tip and the newer ones have a turn down. Im going to say that it is in your head as well. I like to ride with music, so i have ear buds in all the time. Or i ride with ear plugs from Surefire. Im on the border line of needing hearing aids so i like to keep my hears protected.

These are the hearing protection I wear if there is anything that will be high on DB's. These are the best in the market for being In the Ear protection.

Look for an exhaust leak.

I love the smell of styrene in the morning....
