Default Muffler question

On my buddies four wheeler, a spot rusted out on the muffler, and it sounds AWESOME! Real deep growl. Would drilling a hole in my muffler give the same effect??

look into the thrush mufflers by Walker they are 30 bucks! they sound awesome at low rpms. but if you are going anywhere near 3-5gs you are border lining the rice factor.

If it sounds ricey at all, I'm not interested. I want a growl at all rpms.

LoL....... dude sorry to tell you but that's not gonna happen in a ranger. Magnaflow makes a pretty sweet sounding exhaust, but again at 3+ its gonna sound like a ricer.

MAYBE shortening your exhaust to exit in front of your back wheel... but ive never seen or heard a ranger in person with that set up. (I live in CA where you basically cant touch the stock exhaust setup)

Well, I live in North Dakota, where no one cares about anything. I could run it with no muffler and no one would care.
