Are Walker Soundfx Mufflers Loud

They began specializing in exhaust system upgrades during the 1930s which would eventually lead to the expansion of their brand across the globe. These locations are home to emission control engineering and manufacturing divisions that are networked to share expertise.

The result is a world-class system that can support and deliver quality exhaust technology. This technology can be used to upgrade vehicles to perform better or make replacement parts more readily available.

The exhaust systems on cars are subject to a multitude of road debris that can puncture and damage components, leading them to rust. When the noise level gets unusually loud, chances are there is a large leak (from a broken connection) or the muffler has failed.

The muffler channels the exhaust through a series of perforated tubes to slow it down and also reflect the sounds waves to partially cancel out noise. The 18904 is a muffler and tailpipe assembly with a flanked inlet and welded bracket that fits perfectly into its specified application.

The Sound FX muffler is definitely not a flashy product; it provides functionality at a value that most original equipment manufacturers cannot meet. Not every customer shopping around for exhaust is looking for a full 3” polished system that grants huge power gains.

The Quiet-Flow SS has a lifetime warranty and is stainless steel and the Sound FX has a 1-year warranty and is aluminized which I have no idea what they mean by this. I have never used the Quiet Flow because of its high cost.

My '06 Ram has 159K miles and has the original exhaust (OEM stainless steel). We had a '00 T&C that had ~161K miles on it at trade-in and still had the original stainless steel exhaust. I hate exhaust work and would rather pay a little more now for quality stainless steel than go cheap and have to do it again just a few years later.

Aluminized means it has a coating on it to prevent the steel from rusting. The outer casing cracked along the weld line at some point during the winter and let road salt get inside, which rotted out the interior, which looked like mild steel.

Pickering and Doug D, Yeah I hate doing muffler work over and over again. I put a Walker steel muffler about 3-4 years ago, and it is now sounding loud when accelerating.

The last time I check under that area it looks like it is starting to fail as it's rusting and the weep hole shows quite a bit of it. I'm thinking of stainless steel because in the long run I'll probably save more money doing the job once instead of every 3 to 4 years.

Any exhaust system will rust eventually, regardless of the manufacturer. I have searched the forums and have found many threads about Walker replacement exhausts, but I haven't found any feedback regarding the sound/noise levels of the Sound muffler versus the Quiet-Flow one. I just want my car to sound like a normal, factory-stock car.

I found these two clips of a 4 CSL with a SoundFX, and it does seem pretty noisy. Looks like I'll spend the extra $25 for the Quiet-Flow, but I'm still curious how a Sound muffler sounds on a Metro 4 CSL.

Looks like I'll spend the extra $25 for the Quiet-Flow, but I'm still curious how a Sound muffler sounds on a Metro 4 CSL. I just replaced my entire exhaust system with a new Walker system, which included the Sound muffler, and while it's a lot better than it was, I still wish it was as quiet as a stock muffler.

(Check out my project thread in my signature) One of the things I was impressed with was that there was only a 10 dB change between Idle and 2500 RPM. Resonator, Quiet flow muffler, and 1 1/2” clamp was $100 shipped to the house from Advanced Auto parts using a discount code.

I had some issues with the resonator assembly getting damaged in shipping, but after I got it all sorted out, I was good to go! I did spray the welds with some clear engine paint as someone recommended on here, and they were already starting to rust a little.

I was surprised the decibel level inside the car didn't change much. When I had an exhaust leak on my old Civic, it was a night and day difference when I got it patched, but with the Metro it's still relatively loud inside.

I'm guessing it's the lack of sound deadening and a loud motor. Luckily Rock auto recently opened a warehouse near me, so I got the package the next day, even though it was regular shipping.
