    My Exhaust.. WTF is wrong with it?

    This is how my car sounds when cold. It sounds like a weed eater hitting a pile of tin cans. Video is upside down, sorry for the headache

    What you might not be able to hear, is that there is quite a bit of pop//ackflow sounds, when you let off the throttle.

    After the car is nice a warmed up (20-30min of driving) most of the noise goes away, and it sounds a little better (still not deep enough for my tastes.

    and

    so does it just sound like a shitty muffler? Is the piping too small? The exhaust tip too lang? WTH?

    exhaust was done about 2-3 years ago by PO. the piping has some surface rust, but noting is deep. the muffler looks to be clamped on to the piping. some pics:

    It sounds like you might have a leak somewhere. If you don't then there's a chance the muffler or cat is rotted out. It could also be a loose mount.

    seems to me like a good excuse for a cat-back.

    +1. It doenst sound like a leak, but it sounds like the muffler is either crap, or broken on the inside. look at all the rice civics around. they buzz like crazy, but they have no leaks.

    I just needed to hear from other people that it sounds like crap. wanted a somewhat unbiased opinion. Funny how it only sounds that bad when cold though.

    I can't view the videos, but from what you're describing I bet the baffles in the muffler are coming loose, and once it gets hot, expand and therefore don't rattle anymore.

    same here, but I agree, from what you're describing that's what it sounds like
