Few hours work and $16 later and I have a result that I'm damn pleased with. The cabin sound is not that obnoxious but open her taps and here's the result! Awesome V8 howl like it should be on our vehicles

Pretty common 'ghetto mod' really. Two 1 7/8 " stainless steel pipes inserted into exhaust pipes or back box to cover back muffler outlets. Takes some wrangling to get to and had to drop exhaust down to reach it but worth the effort for $8 each pipe!

To clarify, you inserted these pipes so it's straight out and bypass the rear box?

Basically yes, like a cat delete. Just insert the pipes straight into the rear outlets.

thanks, you just whack them in place or is the pipe bolted, secured?

You'll need a dremel or Sawzall, x2 1 7/8" steel flex pipes (auto zone) carjack & socket set.
Once you've got access to back pipes by dropping back box down (used a carjack) they'll be a small 1" silencing pipe inside it. I just used a Sawzall to remove it and filed down smooth. Then take a rubber hammer, slightly oval the pipe ends first and whack it in carefully until it's about 1 1/2" from inlet opening. That's it..good luck!

All the pics I took:
Drop back box carefully by removing two chassis boots as pictured in first two pics. Undo bolts for exhaust tips & twist off tips. Look into pipe and you'll see a small metal pipe (must be a silencer or something) sticking out about 3" in. Use a sawzall to remove (last pic) and then take steel pipes and insert with hammer into exhaust pipes covering ports from back box (about 2" off end of pipe approx). Replace all and roll down windows, enjoy! You're welcome.
