| | Odd Sound After Silencer Replacement of Maruti 800
I have a 1999 model maruthi 800. Recently i had to change its silencer as the previous one rusted. After getting the new silencer fixed, the sound of the car from the rear side doesnt sound so good. I expected it to be more silent. Next day i took back the vehicle to the mechanic When i asked him about it he said it because its a new one and the sound will get better after running few kilometers. He also did some tuning saying that it can help reduce the sound to some level. He some how convinced me saying all this and i left the place. Now the car seems to be more sluggish after he did the tuning. That peppiness has been lost and i can slightly feel the car stalling at lower speeds and that makes me push harder a bit more to keep the car move smoothly. Also I feel that mileage has come down. What do you guys have to say about this? Is there any truth in what he said?
