I agree...never seen anything like it! :confused:


Placing a load on your engine will most likely make it talk more in the upper rpm's!

it was just a random aftermarket muffler i got from this shop and then i chose what tips i wanted on it. . . . Im kinda getting the feeling like I shoulda done some more research before jumping into this one. But what can I do to salvage the situation without having to REPURCHASE a new muffler. (and whats a "load" on my engine? - kritikal aspect)

My intake roars over my exhaust at 4500k beyond..........

You also want to let your exhaust "break in" It is just brand new, so give it time to get the right sound

what kind of intake do you have? have you actually noticed any performance increases? ive heard that sticking some bolt on intake and exhaust actually doesnt do much at all.

AEM intake matched up with a Rogue IKON.

No gains at all, just pure sexy sound :str8pimpi

My Bastuck does the same thing. Loud roar in the low's, but gets kinda silent in the high's. Time to upgrade the headers to change that :woot:

changing the headers would actually give you a nice sound but if that's too much for you I recommend removing resonators.
