I just put in a custom exhaust in my 96 sentra xe. The muffler is very loud and I was wondering if I could just rig something up that would fit inside or over the muffler tip to quiet it down some. I don't care if it is ugly, as long as it will still be easy to take off and put back on. I just want something to quiet it down so that it won't bother my girlfriend so much. I read the thread about sound dampening material in the audio section, but I don't really want to spend the time or money and go so elaborate.
I was thinking something like a piece of sheet metal or wood with a few small holes in it. Something that will just slow the air flow and quiet it down.

Thanks guys

If its a canister style muffler, you can put a silencer on it. If not, go to the muffler shop you had the work done and get a resonator put in. Lower sound levels, lose 1-2 hp (not noticeable), keep law enforcement off your back.

could have a glass pack installed
tones it down and sounds more mellow (better IMO)

I always misplace my silencer you guys ever get tired of that sound when your cruising the hwy and not even your subs can drown out the noise
one.....do you have a full cat back? or just a rice burner on a stock exhaust?
two.... do you have a res? if you say no to one of these questions that is your problem.

What you want it a cutout.

gf in car, cutout closed, through stock muffler
gf out of car, cutout open, bypassing stock muffler (And very loud)

Not my cup o tea, but if you want it really loud one way and really quiet the other, this is the best way...
