Just picked up 03 convertible with the factory side exhaust . Would like to make the car louder. Was at mechanic today and he suggested removing the stock mufflers. Car would still have 2 cats per side for back pressure. Anyone gone this route to “louden” it up? I did search the forum and I have not found any results going this route. I’ve owned several midyear Corvettes with factory chambered side pipe exhaust .they sound great im trying to get closer to that old muscle car sound....appreciate any responses.
