Default How can I make my exhaust not sound so loud?

I have a high flow cat with an obx exhaust system, it's got a nice deep sound but its very loud. How can I fix that besides using a silencer? Should I change my cat and use the factory one or what? Thanks for the help!!!

the factory one would be more restrictive, thus quieter. i would do that.

Keep your high flow catalytic converter. Just add a resonator.

Yea a resonator would be your best bet.

A resonator look kind of like a muffler but its its straight and long it just muffles out the sound but doesnt look like a muffler, inside is some kind of material that does it.
