Well i just recently had a straight pipe exhaust put on my 5.3l silverado. I still have the cats on there but i have no mufflers and it isnt as loud as i think it should be. Even the guy who put it on said "wow this isn't that loud". Im pissed cause i blew $250 on this exhaust to be loud and well its not. What am i missing?
