    help-Escort sounds like a ricer.

    suddenly I was riding in my dads escort and it sounded like a ricer when accelerating (is very loud)

    I thought it was a split exhaust but it is not, can you figure out what it is?

    If theres no external holes in the exhaust, maybe the silencer has fallen apart internally?

    Most likely a part of the exhaust system has rusted and rotted. I can't think of to many other things that could cause excessive noise.

    does anyone else find it scary that he pretends to be a 12 year old?
