Hi,
I had a local kid replace my exhaust system and let him purchase the system. Ever since I hit it back it is considerably louder. And not in a good way. Can I fix this or do I need a new system???
Thanks in advance

Welcome to the Forum!

Well, it sounds like the kid purchased a "noise maker" muffler, left off the resonator, or did not tighten the clamps that hold everything together. The only way to know for sure is to ask the kid to see the receipts for what he purchased for your TrailBlazer and look them up to see if they are universal parts or fitted parts, get it on a lift and look the system over, or have someone else put it on a lift and look it over.

Also, depending on if he purchased a universal one size fit all type muffler, you might need to purchase new pipes if you wind up putting in the proper muffler.

Also, in my younger days, glass pack mufflers were all the rage for kids who liked to soup up their cars. I never did because I know my folks would not stand for it!

Good Luck!
