exhaust growl

I like my muffler, I was wondering if there was a way to get that deep growl without having to do any in depth mods? I heard someone mention putting a resonator in the muffler, but I dunno what that means. Someone help a noob out?

Uh, when you say "I like my muffler" are you talking about the stock muffler? What do you like about it?

Ohhh no I did not like the stock muffler. I bought a muffler that a friend of mine used to have on his intrepid and put it on mine. It has a large exhaust tip etc. I swear I'll get pics up one of these days.

Anyway I guess my question is this: is there a way to get a deep growl without having to put in a whole new exhaust system?

Well The exhaust system on a stock trep includes a muffler and then a resonator at the end. What would stick out at the back is the resonator so if you replaced the resonator with a muffler you aren't going to get much sound change given that the stock muffler is still intact. You will need to remove the stock muffler and replace it with an "S" bend pipe and then put like a flowmaster 50 series delta flow or something equivalent to get a good growl. I personally run a high flow cat with straight pipes. The stock muffler sits up in front of the gas tank more toward the center of the undercarriage.

I'm interested. How many pesos will that kind of hardware set me back?

I just went on Flowmaster's website and they didn't have any kits for the Dodge Intrepid. How did you find yours? I have a 2nd generation 2002.

Depending on the muffler that you bought off your friend, you most likely still have the factory muffler in place. The rear piece is the resonator and if you remove that and replace it with nothing, it still sounds very quiet. Basically you need everything from the rear wheels back removed, and have a couple pieces of pipe bent up to run the new muffler. I would be more detailed, but don't have any clue what you're running right now.

Ohhhhh. Ok. Yeah then I still have the stock muffler in place. The resonator is from a 3rd party manufacturer. I have a guy who lives about 20-30 minutes away from me who works on Dodge cars; he's the one who helped me with other parts as well, like when I wanted a new K and N filter put in etc. Since I am not at all experienced with car modding, I will most likely buy the parts and bring the car to him to work on. Can anyone point me to some good deals for parts?

Depends on your level of creativity. Ebay is a good place to start. I have bought numerous mod-parts there. ES bumper cover for my 1st gen, custom exhaust for the 1st gen, Charger wheels for my 2nd, etc. All depends on how far you want to go. Pretty much anything can be done if you have the time and motivation.
If you're looking for other items, try www.summitracing.com or jegs.
