Honestly not sure which one it is called I have the exhaust with the holes on the interior of the exhaust and Im thinking that I need to drill them out or deeper but honestly im not sure about the whole operation and dont think my harbor freight cordless drill is going to cut the mustard

So I was looking around and it looks like this has already been done but it does not seem to be loud or deep enough for my taste you think my only option is aftermarket pipes ?

You see that closed off part in the bottom at 6 o clock?

Drill through that and it gets deeper. :)

See all that stuff in the middle there? Take as much of that out as you can. I removed the chrome tips, cut the end off of the muffler, removed the baffle, drilled everything I could with 5/8" holes. I had a 24" long bit that came crime Harbor Freight.

Then I had Cobra Speedster Longs. They were to quiet, so I went to HK Sideburners. I cut part of the muffler out on that muffler too.

I like low and loud. My stock pipes that I basically gutted...they were lower and louder than either of my aftermarket exhaust systems.
