anyone here has some advice on what kind of exhaust looks and sounds great on an RL? i dont want any of those fireball type stuff... they can be great for sports car, but not really for an RL.... and i dont want anything that sounds to loud....

i've taken a look on google but most of the links i can come up with really are crappy :(

i've tried to know the OEM exhaust size too... and didnt find it... :(

and if you guys have some pictures.... it would be great! :D

thx :bigok:

If you don't mind paying for custom piping, a Flowmaster 50-series "SUV" is pretty quiet compared to most "aftermarket" exhaust. I don't have one on my RL, but I had one on my 3.5L, V-6, Pathfinder. No raspy/ricey sound, just a nice low tone that was louder than stock, but not annoying/loud when cruising at a steady speed.

Let us know what you end up going with and post a video/sound clip if you can. Thanks!

But anyways, here's my old setup:
crush bent 2 in piping b pipe back
straight through muffler

Thoughts: First month it sounded AWESOME! Then progressively it got louder and louder, and the droning was horrible! With windows up, my friends ears were hurting really bad. It always droned at 2.4-3000RPM, so at freeway speeds going 70, you would be droning like crazy. I got sick of it so I decided on a new setup. I'll post a video of it sometime soon, I broke my camera :p

I spend years with Hondas and loud exhausts and now I love my quiet RL and the stock muff!

So how is it now ? Is there a way to just get the tip of the exhaust painted chrome or covered so that it just looks good lol ?? Where Can I do that? And I was wondering What site I could get it =P

This is from the dyno with my custom exhaust.

It's pretty nice right now, just gets a little loud at 2000-2200. No droning anymore. It's very tolerable, and is very quiet when driving at constant speeds.

When I feel like it i'll post some revs, in-car, and outside clips.

Like I said, it's a custom exhaust, a custom mandrel bent axleback. I got hooked up at a classic car shop my friend knows. I got REALLY hooked up for about $150ish.

Just go to a exhaust shop I guess and talk to them.
