Default Silencer Noise!! need urgent help

suddenly i noticed that there is a strange noise coming from the beneath of my alto done 30000 kms. it wasn't long before i realized that the banging sound of tin is coming from the end can of my silencer. when inquired the mechanic said the material "jaali" inside has fallen off.
will this affect my performance of the car? i am finding the top end is reduced a bit. still not sure about the ill effects of the fallen muffler material.

also i want some suggestions to fix it.

Goto a local silencer shop for repair, the jaali will keep hitting the silencer from inside rupturing it at some stage.

the proper thing will be is change the rear muffler.

the jaali repair is not worth it as it usually breaks at the muffler ends internally.
I had a similar problem the internal jaali will vibrate at certain frequencies of the exhaust.

Yea Amit, I too second Technocrat on that as after your much research done on FFE, go for it and am sure your baby is crying for it through this

yeah i think i need to get the FFE. this seems a better reason to go for it. as it is the end can is costly. better i go for a FFE. is 3-2-1 configuration applicable to 800cc alto? i have heard only of 3-1, middle and high end performance. my city (Pune) calls for a low end maximum torque.

FFE will be a better thing to insall now as you have a genuine reason opening the stock silencer and getting it on the original shape will cost you as much as getting a FFE so go for it man

Just jab a few holes in your end can with the help of a screw driver & you have the most cost effective free flow.
