I fabbed one. It was a very simple and easy fab job. If you look in the exhaust section I made a thread about it with a couple pictures. I have gotten nothing but compliments on the sound. Fair warning: it is very hard to keep from wanting to get into the second cam all the time.

I will try taking a video with my phone and camera and see if the sound comes through at all.

Given the packaging and clientele, mufflers for our cars are just so unrealistically expensive. I'm going to try the cheapest options first. The straight pipe off the cat is my first choice probably, just because I still own my cat.

I had the sound analyzer in my car yesterday. 105dB at 65mph with the soft top on and windows up, radio off. Windows down was 110dB. That is pretty far above the long-term exposure limit haha. Even ear plugs don't work because it is all focused at 125Hz and 250Hz. There is nothing above about 1000Hz, indicating that my time installing Second Skin Damplifier worked well!

Thanks for the help guys!

I posted a video and some decibel readings in my muffler delete thread here for anyone else interested:

I was more in the 85db range at 65 with windows up. Seems like your muffler has turned into an amplifier!
