Folgers coffee can: $5

Weld job: $15

Causing people to look at your car in disgust: priceless

Umm, easiest way, hacksaw the muffler. Believe me it'll be loud (back me up anyone else who's owned crapboxes that the muffler fell off of)

If you want an actual exhaust you need new exhaust manifold, straight flow exhaust and catalytic converter. That will add a little performance and make it louder bu pricey. If you want something a little cheaper you can just get an after market exhaust fromthe catalytic converter back,that'll be like 100 and sound like you did something to it

Okay here is the best way to make your exhaust sound loud but professional. First buy a magnaflow muffler. It will get you the best sound out of all the mufflers without sounding cheep. Now with that you MUST change your pipes from your cadalic converter back to the muffler to 3" pipes. That will get you the deep sound instead of that cheep crappy sound!!!!!! I went to my local muffler/pipe place and they made the exhaust pipes for me. This hands down will give you the professional sound you want without breaking the bank. :-) If you do anything else it will sound like crap!

you really don't want to do that, everyone will laugh at you (including me). and don't listen to the guy above me who can't spell "cheap", he's probably 10 years old

Put a after market muffler on with a cannon size exhaust tip.
