You're straight piping it right? If not I'd get an old motorcycle muffler/ make your own it'll sound a lot better than the stock muffler.

this whole build has been because of the front hood.lol. and i wanted it to be custom so i started by combining the parts i wanted from 3 different mower and then went to the rear fenders. from a pile of parts to a far from done rolling chassis its been fun and i cant wait until its finished Craftsman/Murray mixup IMG_20140422_185311_691_zps86520886
