Hey y'all,

I'm looking to fine tune my current exhaust setup. Short story, DIY almost-straight piped side exit. Long story, Stock Manifolds and downpipes, stock H-Pipe, Totalflow 2102 straight-through mufflers, flex pipes, and leftover exhaust pipe for the side exits. I love how it sounds, but the only issue I have with it is it sounds a bit like a truck, which I don't like. Mainly, what can I do to tone down the highs a bit so it doesn't "gurgle" so much? Easiest way I can put it is I don't like the truck-sounding part that you usually hear, the high-end "gurgling" sound.

Dump it under the car in front of the rear axle instead of side exit. Having the exhaust exits at least pointed the same direction helps a lot with reducing the truck like note, I have the same issue with my cutouts. Additionally, it sounds like you might have an exhaust leak somewhere you need to find
There’s a right way, a wrong way, and a janky way to fix something; I don’t usually have the brains or the money to pick the right way.
