    "Loud" mufflers are illegal in most jurisdictions. You will be ticketed if you've modified the muffler or exhaust system in order to make it sound extra loud.

    If it’s a Subaru or a V8, get the widest loudest system you can afford. Otherwise leave it alone esp if you have a Civic.

    Only someone with the mentality of a 5 year old boy wants their car to be louder. A mature, rational adult does not. and, in my neighborhood, loud cars not only get reported to the police, the driver often gets dragged out of the car and beaten to a pulp.

    Take at look at Summit Racing and pick out a muffler that will fit your exhaust system. You may regret a losing your quiet exhaust later and you can always go back to the OEM muffler.

    Oh, Advance Auto has a good selection but you might have to special order it.

    Usually a muffler change from the stock muffler would do that.  Thrush or Blue Bottle or some other.   It is more like a baffle and less like a muffler.  You can see straight through it end to end. where as a muffler goes back and forth in a squiggle pattern.   Mention it to any auto parts store and they know what a THRUSH AND BLUE BOTTLE IS.    Exhaust system would mean header(pricier).  I am suggesting the cheaper option to give you some sound...and still be legal.  Leave the Catalytic converter on because inspections look for that removal(those cost several hundred dollars to replace) so don't go there.

    lol want to wake up neighbors or something maybe irritated at someone? cut off your converters and straight pipe it and remove the muffler.... the eco friendly way option is just replace the muffler with a glass pack off ebay

    the muffle is a better way to make car sound louder than exhaust system exhaust isn't meant to make your car louder, generally that'd indicate a problem with ur car

    Get the "glass packs" that will give your muffler the domineering edge over quieter vehicles.

    be careful you don't make it drone. When I was a boy id take the resonator off it would make it louder but it will drone when your cruising on the freeway very annoying sound.

    a good name muffler should do the trick for a more throaty sound .. alot of places wont do a full exhaust, you'd have to do it yourself ... something else that is cool just for information, is an exhaust cut-out .. you could install that way forward and dump the open exhaust out the bottom with the flick of a switch lol .. .thats a cop attractor though if you get to liking it too much lol ..
