Here is my current exhaust setup. The muffler is a Flowmaster outlaw. The tips are just basic stainless powdercoated matte black. The muffler is a straight-through design, no ridges or any sort of sound-muffling components. Not sure how it works, but it works well.

I love it! Thanks for posting this up. I think what I may do is buy the muffler delete and add in that muffler if I can't handle the sound.

The exhaust sounds great and the black powdercoated tips is a great touch as they compliment the wheel setup you have going on. The depth of the muffler is a great improvement but I was wondering how does the drone sound (if any) at highway speeds?

nice ride man, what rims are those? you should do a build thread.
Thanks! Those are F1R F29 rims with stock tires. The sizing is 18x9.5 +38. The car needs to be lowered asap. I ordered coilovers for it . I wanted to start the build thread section but no one seemed interested. I posted about it. I might just make one for myself and see if it picks up.

That car was nice for sure. I had it for 2 years (leased). To be completely honest, the elantra is surprisingly better in so many ways. If you want me to elaborate on that, just hit me up via pm. I doubt people here wanna read it.

This car has no drone at all. When I drive on the freeway around 75-80 it's very quiet in the cabin, sounds stock. You only hear the exhaust when you apply some throttle. I think even with muffler deleted the car would remain fairly quiet on the freeway, but much louder when it sees any throttle input.

No resonator?

Also, what coilovers did you purchase?

Resonator is still in. Not sure how it would sound without one. Definitely happy with the sound level as is. The only thing I'd change about this exhaust is to have a bit more sound at high rpm.

The coilovers are hsd monotube. From what I heard they are the ones who make stance coilovers too and I liked those a lot.

I was just wondering about the resonator since I'm looking for something with about the same tone and characteristics, but a little quieter.

Do you have a link to the coilovers? I don't see an application for the ES on their site.

If you want a similar tone but quieter, just get a similar muffler but one that has some sound deadening material inside. Mine has a totally smooth surface inside, so it muffles just enough to make it fun.

I got the coilovers through the sharkracing site. You can search for them through the menu under our car model. As far as mono vs twin tube, just watch a few videos on that and see which suits your driving style more.

Alright, thanks. I'll be looking forward to your review on them. Hoping to get something close to stock ride quality.

And what's stopping you? You seem impatient, but that's how I am too. This is my second set of wheels already and I've had the car for 2 months or so. I just felt excited, so I didn't care to wait. The first set was in 18x8.5 by avid1. I thought they weren't wide enough, so I got these instead in 9.5 width. They stick out about an inch from the fenders and have barely any room on the inside, so this is just about the limit of what the car can "fit". It's exactly the look I wanted as they'll tuck in a bit more when lowered. If you want the same, they are F1R wheels in 18x9.5 +38. You can even go for 40-45 offsets and still fit, but they didn't have that. Plus I learned later that there is still some room on the inside. Search on ebay for wheels, there are lots of other options. Just ask if you're unsure of what specs to get.

Thanks for the excellent in-depth video :)

Could you please post a link to those tips, or mention the outlet size? They fill the space really well!

An inch out of the fenders seems a little over the limit. lol

You can find those tips at most muffler shops. They have a lot of different options! The ones I got are a bit larger than stock.

That depends on what look you're going for. I don't like wheels that sit flush with the fender. I like them sticking out with stretched tire. I've run a lot of different setups on cars and always preferred that extreme look that barely fits. Once it's lowered it'll make sense. Right now it's really high up. Also, I wanted to run wider wheels and this car just does not have the space to run anything over 8.5 without excessive poking out. To each their own, just get the wheels that fit your taste.
