    Replacing stock muffler to improve sound?

    Hi, i want to improve the sound of my exhaust, but i don't want it to be super loud and i'm not ready to invest in a new exhaust system. I want something that will provide a 25-50% increase in volume (i prefer deep tones). Would replacing the stock muffler with a turbo muffler improve the sound? I want the sound to be barely noticeable during normal daily driving and more noticeable at around 3500-4000 RPMs. I want something louder that i can enjoy, but not too loud to attract immediate attention. Thanks!

    Probably wont be loud enough for you with just a resonater delete, its barely noticible from inside the car. You said you wanted 25 to 50 percent increase in sound, in my opinion resonater delete will barely get you to 20%.

    Muffler Delete. I had a local shop do it for me for $50. I provided the exhaust tip and he did the rest. Can get loud or stay quiet. I like it.
