Starting to wonder if something's wrong or what... ??

Ok.. most of ya know I have a 05 Daytona, they come stock with Borla Mufflers and Resonator tips.

At about 15-20k miles I changed the muffler to a Cherry Bomb Elite (all steel) muffler but kept the resonator's on it. It actually sounded pretty good, at slow speeds it was a little loud and when you put your foot on it, umm.. Loud = understatement...

Now, for the last few months my wife has been complaining a little bit when she rides in the truck saying "it's making too much noise".. this I like but in the neighboring cities the local police, our County Sheriff and CHP tend to frown at you about his and LOVE to give you a nice piece of paper - this hasn't happened yet...

I'm just wondering if the Resonators are finally wearing out (don't know what's in them except for that inner sleeve with tons of holes (glass pack types?), I don't think the muffler's gone yet.. no signs of leaks or anything...

The longer you are married the more the wife complains. Maybe the exhaust hasn't changed at all....

Can't say much about the 'variation-with-the-wife' ...
but the tips may well be the difference .

Hmmm, I was just recently thinking of changing out my Cherry Bomb Eilte as I thought it was just a tad too tame. I am sure it would be even quieter with the stock resonators on. I know the Elite is one of their bigger mufflers made (5X10X22) so I was going to try something around the same dimensions but just a tad shorter, maybe a 18" turbo style muffler. I should check to see if Cherry Bomb makes something just a tad shorter because they do sound great and very little drone.
