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!
