Might I recommend you try get some dirt on it? The caked on mud might change the sound

Maybe do a test and get some exhaust piping to fit over the end of yours, clamp it down with hose clamps, and give it a drive

The mall parking lot doesn't tend to throw up a lot of dirt Charles

I swapped a new muffler into my borla exhaust. Don't recall which one but I asked the shop for the quietest one they had. It's much better and still has a nice gurgle to it, without being overbearing. Id guess It halved the sound. I still have the borla tip. "Just the tip" - Vince Vaughn. (Had to be said).

Thinking of just biting the bullet and buying the $750 NRP exhaust. It is apparently quiet and has a resonator as well.

Anyone interested in a loud as hell magnaflow

I just noticed I have stainless aftermarket exhaust on my Defender, and it isn't very loud. It has a good sound and almost sounds stock inside the truck. I didn't notice a name, but I can look more closely if you'd like. I'm guessing its not a Defender kit and is probably something an exhaust shop made.

Are you getting rid of just the Y section with cats?

I'm keeping the Y-pipe.


I went ahead and ordered the NRP exhaust. I also ordered some Second Skin Sludge that I'm going to apply above the muffler and inside rear wheel wells. I'll post a noise update once I'm done.

The frustration continues. Cannot get the NRP to fit without the resonator rubbing against the rear wheel well. Even took it to a local shop today and they said the same thing.

Ugh. Sorry Brad, what a pain. What are you thinking of trying next? I thought it was just a bolt on.

I wish I had an idea for you to try.

Couldn't the shop just tighten the bend before the resonator?

Seems like a big waste of money, if you want a quiet exhaust order a stock muffler and have the local exhaust guy install it

I just took the cat back muffler off my D1 and modified where necessary. Bit cut and shut but at least I got that pesky over the axle bit right.

That's what we told him in one of these threads.

It probably is, but I'm very happy with the end result. Not an easy install, but I think it still sounds deeper than stock but without the magnaflows drone.

Only issue now is that it exits slightly different than the magnaflow and it's right up against my mudflap.
