Straight Pipes.......make quieter..?

So on my 84z28 right now I have open headers(i don't drive the car). And I have already placed an order from Jegs for some Hooker 2055's my question is that I want to run straight pipes(because I am a a college student and my financial status currently limits me to straight pipes, cheaper, but I am planning on adding a cat later on) but I wanted to know if anyone has seen any videos on LG4 straight pipes..?My open headers are LOUD and sound like ugly...

The car will be my daily driver and any other suggestion on any muffler that coudl possibly "calm" the noise form straight pipes........I have a flowmaster 10...will that help or just make it louder??

If your planning on running straight pipes cause it's "cheaper." It's going to cost you more in tickets than if you bought a complete system of your choice. I just seen your from CA. Don't you need to pass emissions for registration tags?

Re: Straight Pipes.......make quieter..?

loud to who? you or others?

if you run straight pipes out the back, "you" won't hear it as much.

Re: Straight Pipes.......make quieter..?

Have to agree with the dynomax. Probably the best solution for this situation.

Re: Straight Pipes.......make quieter..?

How is buying 2 exhaust systems cheaper than buying 1?

Keep your money in your pocket and save it up; do it once, RIGHT; don't look back.

Straight pipes will sound just as bad as open headers.
