Yes, it will make it louder, but it will cause you to lose some power and can lead to valve damage in the heads.
If you are after a louder sound, I would add in flowmaster 40 series mufflers and slightly larger tail pipe ends.

Why does my 2008 pontiac g6 get louder in reverse


Generally it's a broken exhaust flex pipe,as the engine rocks opposite to what it does when driving forward ,the exhaust flex pipe or a joint in the exhaust separates and it can get NOISY!.

Making whistle noise on off on run and stopping.


There are basically two types of whistle noises.

* Whistle when you get more gas (increase RPM, put gas pedal, sometimes just idling but louder when you put more gas)
This usually intake-side leak.
Intake manifold itself, intake manifold gasket (most likely), even airfilter housing, Airflow meter housing (connector), anything where air goes to engine.
usually engine get rough or unstable idle when intake leak occur.
Engine knocking or pinging may feel.

* Whistle when you decrease RPM (engine brake, reduce speed, sometimes just idling but louder when it dropping RPM)
This usually Vacuum-side leak.
There are many vacuum hoses in engine room. even inside of cabin (heater control, etc)
Try to spot where it coming from.
Vacuum also connected to Brake servo, heater control and spark timing.

Put metal or plastic pipe (small PVC pipe will work fine) to one of your ear then isolate source of noise and find where it come from.

My muffler fell off today and its louder but i have a rough idle now what is the muffler why is it doing this. its also loss of power


your muffler not only reduces sound but also tunes the flow of exhaust gas,so if it is missing, all the engine tune is put out completely,replace asap so that you run quiter and use less gas.(F1 racing cars have a length of pipe that is cut to an exact length to give max power...)

Which rear muffler would be louder (or drone) the most: 1. 8"x4"x14" straight through centre inline pipe with perforated holes 2. 8"x4"x14" inlet/outlet centre inline pipe with perforated holes and a...


The shortest distance from point A to point B. No. 1 would most likely be louder; no. 2 would most likely sound huskier. Better to just buy a performance muffler made specifically for the Alfa.
