Nasally sound

I have an 05 outback sport w/ 40k miles on it and just started noticing a deep noise when applying throttle...it sounds as if I changed the exhaust to give the engine a strong sound. What could it be. Thanks

Sorry but I'm still learning a lot about my car (cars in general). Can you elaborate?

sure no probs

the exhaust is split into various sections, down pipe, center section and back box. if one of the joints isn't fitting properly (aka bolts worked loose) air will be escaping where it shouldn't be and creating the noise

if its not one of the joints in the exhaust then it could have a hole blown in one of the back boxs or centre box . failing that it could be the down pipe that goes to the engine take it to your exhaust fitters they shoul tell you.
