Hello. I have a 2000 honda accord, currently with the mid muffler/resonator removed as well as the rear muffler also removed. The car does have a cat converter.
I notice humming/buzzing when accelerating and cruising at certain speeds. The car is also just slightly loud for me overall volume wise with no muffler and resonator. I want to make the car quieter but only SLIGHTLY quieter than what it currently is (maybe just 5-10% quieter) and hopefully get rid of some of the drone.
I purchased a 12” cherry bomb glasspack at my local auto store. Which of the following options would reduce the most drone/humming and give the exhaust a better tone, but NOT reduce too much of the overall sound level?
A.) install the cherry bomb where the mid muffler/resonator would go and then run straight pipe to the back bumper
B.) run straight pipe from the middle where the original mid muffler/resonator was cut off to the back bumper and install the cherry bomb as the rear muffler.
