02 GTS - muffler delete?

Looking for a bit more volume and a deeper sound on my 02 GTS. I see some folks removing the rear muffler and some installing straight pipes in its place. How much louder is this and how does it sound?

How is it if I just remove the muffler and run the dumps under the car with no delete pipe? Curious to try this before I buy the delete but, don't want to waste time fighting it off if it sounds shitty.

Drop the rear muffler and install an X-pipe.

Virtually everyone who has replaced the muffler with pipes, x or H has never regretted it. The only regret I have is that I didn't do it sooner. Not much louder but much more throaty and rumbles.

Where's the best place to get one? John at parts rack?

If I want to test the sound first, is it similar to just pulling the rear muffler and letting it dump at the rear axle?

I had a rear muffler delete before I went to side exit exhaust. You have to remember that with the exit still in the rear tho, it is MUCH louder than you think outside the car. On my side exit I can tell how loud it is because it comes out right by my ear.

This ain't your daddy's farm truck. You don't have the exhaust dump anywhere. You have it exit where it is supposed to if you don't want to cook something. Like your gas tank or diff or brakes.

No, it would not be anything like dumping at the axle. Go get the H or X, both are a huge improvement over stock. There is no need to test the sound. When I said "Virtually everyone" I meant it.

The H can be done at any exhaust shop. The X sounds a bit better I believe.

So I took the advice here and from a few other local Viper folks and decided to spend the extra couple $$ and go for a catback. I'm going with a Billy Boat system and plan to install myself. I have a 4 post lift which should make it much easier than laying in the driveway. Anyone have any tips or suggestions on self installing? I assume it's just time consuming and not difficult? Do I need to remove the rockers or anything else to set this up?

thanks,

Rockers? Like rocker panels? You will have to remove the side sills (believe that's what you are calling rockers).

Yep, side sills is what I meant ;-)
Any thoughts on how difficult this is and tips/suggestions for the install?

I swapped out the muffler on my '00 GTS for a SnakeOyl H-pipe and there was no side sill removal required. Only issue was it wasn't a perfect fit and I had to jimmy it around a bit to get everything to go together. Took a couple of hours and should have taken less.

That would void the Manufacturer's Warranty, and would run afoul of EPA emissions and NHTSA safety regulations.

No, we do not encourage or condone modding Vipers here.
