How to Make a Truck Exhaust Louder

by Justin Obrien

Making your truck sound like a performance vehicle can cost you a lot of money. To have a custom catalytic converter installed with dual glass pack exhaust can cost you thousands of dollars. With a few supplies and tools you can make your truck exhaust louder right in your own garage.

Step 1

Purchase a muffler tip with a connector that has the same diameter of the current muffler's tailpipe on the truck. You can purchase a muffler tip from your local auto store. The bigger the exit hole diameter on this muffler tip, the louder your truck. You can look at a muffler tip as if you were yelling into a parking cone; your voice projects louder just as the exhaust sound will.

Step 2

Place the muffler tip over your current muffler tailpipe. Screw the set screws on the muffler tip tightly down so the tip stays in place.

Drill 1/2-inch holes throughout the base of your muffler. Drill 10 to 15 evenly spaced holes. This will enhance the exhaust noise even more.

Items you will need

  • Drill with 1/2-inch bit
  • Muffler tip
  • Wrench set
