It seems everyone is calling the 17749’s a very quiet option. Is it like factory quiet, or does it have a little rumble? I’m wanting someone that is slightly above factory noise to at least let you know you have some motor.

If that’s what you’re looking for in a muffler they’re the right ones for you.

No, they are not factory quiet. Louder, but not obnoxious

Pipe size makes a big difference - 17749's and their 2-1/4" equivalent are different in their noise level. 2-1/4" are almost factory quiet - the 2-1/2"s quite a bit louder but not obnoxious or ticket worthy.

Were I to redo mine Lemans, I would have 2-1/2" head pipes with 2-1/4" tail pipes. My T/A has the Thrush setup; quiet but not OEM quiet.
