Default How can I make my 1988 Honda Civic DX Sedan sound loud when I drive?

I want to amke my 1988 Honda Civic DX Sedan sound loud when I drive by. I want it to have the "Street Racer" Sound. How do I do that? I dont know very much about cars, so is there any easy way to do this? Can I do it myself or do I need to go to a shop? I herd i can put an exaust tip on, but I have no clue what that is or what it will do. Please help me!

buy a muffler off ebay. Just type in 88 civic muffler and buy one with a wide tip. If you want to do it cheaper, just punch a hole in your original muffler.

Remove your Cat.converter and straight pipe it then get a resonator. It would be best to take it to a performance shop and get the exhaust done. If you dont get a resonator it will sound whiney and annoying and your car will sound like this ''RIIIICE .. RIIICCEE . . RICCCEE'' dont be a ricer get nice exhaust not a $20 muffler off ebay. The best idea is to either swap out your engine or buy a car that already has an sngine swap. The engine makes the performance sound you want, not the exhaust.

remove the exhaust and run only with the header. you may get a ticket tho. you can get a coffee can looking muffler and have it put on. that should be loud enough and not get you in trouble for not having an exhaust.

All I can say is you should installed your car with a high quality muffler, and you will the loud you want while you were driving by.
