    Exhaust upgrades??

    Anyone else annoyed by the 'tinny' exhaust drone between 2k and 3k RPM? I'm looking for anything that will either quite this, or at least make it sound less like a Geo Metro...

    you need to add another resonator, preferably underneath the rear passenger seat if you want to get rid of that sound.

    do you want a louder exhaust note? you can then delete the muffler (good if you like to rev the car hard, often)

    or you can replace your muffler with a resonator or two right before the exhaust tips. it will sound good and get rid of drone.
