I am wondering what are the best options for a quieter exhaust than a Linney Titan. It was ok at first but now after 3 months it's ridiculously loud I can't even here my girlfriend speaking loudly at 100 km/hr. I only bought it under the impression it was quiet I know everyone's opinion is different but it drones like crazy and if I wanted a car with a bolt on loud back box I would have just bought a civic. Im guessing there are no options for resonated midpipe to fit with the Titan. I am thinking HKS Resonated midpipe and Legamax. Any opinions?

Titan Street or Race?  Stock or aftermarket downpipes?

Can't go wrong with the HKS setup. Love mine. Here's a short clip of the non-res midpipe/legamax cat on my car.

Edit: Stock Downpipes

That exhaust is tame with stock downpipes, but you are past that step.  Piecing together a resonated midpipe with another cat-back with mufflers is the best way to have a tame exhaust with aftermarket downpipes.  Another option could be going back to stock cat-back with non-resonated midpipe.

Boost Logic and ETS Titanium are quieter... We also supply Armytrix, which are very quiet due to their Valvetronic design!

Hey Collin,

 

if you want a real smooth sounding exhaust, the Akrapovic is super nice but expensive and might restrict flow in a high HP car.

 

I also just got the Kline inconel one but its kinda exotic.

 

I know a lot of the guys at Jotech run the Greddy.  I am always surprised by that exhaust.  Nice looking, light, good price...and man does it sound nice.  Its really subdued but when you go WOT you know it.


In7anity!!

The HKS legamax with a resonated midpipe is a good option, although rather quiet.

 

Do you have catless downpipes?

I had a Greddy super ti and sold it as it was even louder than this now I'm still not happy the car has catless downpipes but not sure what brand they just look stainless.
Would a HKS resonated or any resonated mid pipe fit with the Linney Titan?
Honestly I don't mind very quiet I'd actually prefer it for comfort and so I could have more fun in the car without worrying about cops.

If you want VERY quiet..put oem cats back in... very few exhausts are quieter than the Titan Street with large mufflers

Also had Greddy 94mm Ti on my car for about two weeks. That was crazy loud with stock downpipes. Couldn't imagine the drone+rasp and what it'd sound like with catless DPs. The config that worked best for me was stock downpipes with resonated midpipe + stock catback. With catless DPs installed, the drone and volume returned even with stock catback. All personal preference but I HATE drone and will do everything possible to eliminate it. 

 

If stock silence with catless DPs is what you're after, the Litchfield triple-silenced 102mm system (total of 5 mufflers) would be my recommendation. Be forewarned, some folks in the UK end up selling it because it's too quiet but that is what I was looking for. My preference for an exhaust is ZERO drone, minimal exhaust noise, with the performance benefit of 102mm piping. The sound of spooling ballbearing turbos is what does it for me. Installed mine on Monday night and it is as advertised. Litchfield did a great job in designing the exhaust to conform to track sound dB limitations. Will have sound clips and write-up soon.

Greddy is not loud or raspy at all and I have a full ETS turbo kit. Way less drone than my old setup and sounds awesome at WOT

I appreciate all the replies but I have to agree with L.L my Greddy was very high pitch and raspy the Titan is better but still way too much drone. I'll have to research this litchfield system thanks all.

Adding a single Borla muffler to my midpipe on a completely cat-free system got rid of 100% of the raspy (i.e. crappy pickup truck) sounds and killed any cruising drone.  Still sounds great at WOT though.  I'm guessing you might have some difficulty finding a fabricator that is able to modify a Ti system, but if you can it could be cheaper/easier than completely replacing the whole system.

Adding the Borla XR1 muffler to my AMS midpipe did wonders with stock DPs. I'm guessing Colin is in a similar situation and goals are similar but the catless DPs changes things quite a bit in terms of volume and drone.

He could attempt to add a properly sized 4" muffler (if he can find one) to the Linney 4" section of the midpipe but, from looking at the pictures of the MP, it may not physically fit because of the short length. And even then, the one additional muffler may not eliminate all of the drone. Typically Titanium is thinner than SS so that also plays a factor in how the system sounds.

Anyway, here's the sound clip video of the Litchfield exhaust in various driving scenarios as mentioned in my previous post for anyone who might be interested in a super quiet exhaust that cancels out the drone of catless DPs very well. Best listened to with headphones or full range speakers.

Hi Colin,

Thank you for this thread I follow this the greatest interest as I'm bored with the drone/sound level inside my car, even when I drive at low rev. (my setup is Gtc decat. downpipes, Hks resonated Y, Hks Legamax).

Thank you for your contribution, L.L., I'm very close to buy Litchfield triple silenced system. You seem to have tried a lot of exhaust, L.L., would you confirm you have now the less drone you could expect from a catless dp setup?

Many thanks
Thom

Hi Thom so you are saying you still have drone with the HKS Legamax and Resonated Y pipe? If so that's interesting as well as before I set this thread up I would have assumed it was quietest. I'll keep this thread updated when I make a decision and probably change it.

I agree I think it's not worth trying a resonator for the hassle of working with titanium then if it's still not quiet will be harder to sell.

That video was great what did you use? I know mine sounds a lot quieter on video than in person but I can tell huge differences yours is way quieter than mine. I'll have to get on to Litchfield and get a price.

Thanks again man.

Hi Thom -- I've always tried to stick with the stock OEM catback section to minimize excessive exhaust sound/drone with different combinations up front. We do take the car on long drives often so it has to be tolerable. The catless DPs were always my concern because everyone I knew said they would introduce drone and they were right. After listening to the video with various speakers and headphones, I feel it's louder in the video than in person as there are some lower tones that are not present in the car. So, yes, I can confirm the drone has been substantially eliminated which was what I was after.

Glad to help. I used a Canon Powershot ELPH 300HS camera mounted on a tripod. It's actually quieter in person and I felt the microphone on the camera amplified certain lower frequencies that are not heard in real life and not so much the high frequencies (can't hear my turbos that well) but it's fairly easy to tell the drone was not present in the normal driving sections of the video.

 

I'll leave this video here as well. This is Litchfield's track test video with the blue GTR running the same system on the track. Starts at 3:03 if skipping first parts of the video. Compared to the gray GTR, the reduction in volume and drone is apparent. It comes alive at WOT but once they back off the throttle, there is not much to be heard. That is the video Lee at Litchfield had me listen to prior to making the decision.
