I just had my Brullen exhuast put in today!

I went to see Richard from Brullen the other day, so i decided right there i'll go for his Cat back system. I know some of you don't like them because there too loud, but i told him i wanted it a wee bit quieter. I made it some what custom. It took a while to get the job done, but it was well worth the wait. I was pretty happy with it.

Not to sure!

Sorry Gamite, i'm not to sure what he did. All i said to him ' I know your exhausts are loud, but i want mine toned down a bit" He told me no problem. I can give you his # if you want to talk to him directly.

Did he quiet the muffler before or after he actually made the thing?

Gamite, you can add resonators to make it quiter, that's what I'm going to do with mine in the spring, cause it's stored for the winter. They sell them for about $25 a piece at muffler shops, and to see how much quiter it is before actually buying them just go to a muffler shop and ask them to hold them against the tips while you rev up the engine, that's what they did for me and it sounded about 30% to 40% quiter, just perfect.

My brullen was way to loud, I was setting off car alarms at idle! No Joke!
Catback will make a big difference.

I've got the factory resonators on too, but just add one more/pipe and it'll make a huge difference, just go to a muffler shop and ask them to hold one on each exhaust tip and you can hear the difference........
