Default What can i do to keep the deep sound on my exhaust in low rpms but delete the farty sound in

high rpms? i got 2.5 inch piping and a magnaflow muffler put on my honda accord a few weeks ago. I am very happy with the way it sounds around 1-2.5 rpms but then once it gets higher in rpms it starts to sound really farty. any suggestions on what i could do to keep my deep sound i like in the low rpms but get rid of that farty sound in the high rpms? thanks

Not much other than keep the revs down. That's the nature of 4 and 6 cylinder engines -- they sound "farty" at high RPMs.

Such is the noise of a 4 cylinder. No such thing as a deep sound. More an experimentation with various mufflers for different sounds or even better is "no sound at all" as in the factory muffler.

Look into a silencer for your exhaust online or at the shop where you got it. There's not much you can actually do to it to lessen the "fartiness." There are many after market exhaust systems though and you should do some research and look at some youtube vids until you hear the sound you want. There are exhausts out there that sound nice and deep throughout the rev range for 4 cylinders vehicles you just gotta look for them. Until then keep your revs down...

Not all engines sound the same.

Unfortunately, you have a Honda, which by nature will always sound like a lawnmower at high RPM.

If you want a deeper tone, buy a Subaru.
