I don't wanna get a whole new exhaust system but I want my car to sound loud and nice do I get a new muffler?
If you want loud, yes, just replace the muffler. But your neighbors might not like it. Ha
What about exhaust tips?
Tips ,are for looks,not sound,but if you want to look good, may want them.
I would start by seeing if there is packing in your muffler if so take it out it can make it a little louder or you could straight pipe it lol cut the muffler out and put a pipe there then buy a silencer tip for any where from 25 to 125$ that's the cheap way or go to ebay you can buy full exhaust system for cheap and headers
