Locate your muffler under the back of your car. Drill 10 to 15 holes evenly around the base of the muffler.
Unbolt the brackets that hold your muffler in place. Unscrew the bolts that connect your muffler to the exhaust pipe from your engine. Remove the muffler. Know that while removing your muffler will make your car much louder, it is illegal in some states to drive a vehicle on the roads without the proper exhaust system.

Purchase glass packs online or from your local auto store. They fit right where the muffler did and bracket to your car frame the same way too. Connect the glass pack to your exhaust pipe and re-connect the brackets.
