help-Escort sounds like a ricer.

suddenly I was riding in my dads escort and it sounded like a ricer when accelerating (is very loud)

I thought it was a split exhaust but it is not, can you figure out what it is?

If theres no external holes in the exhaust, maybe the silencer has fallen apart internally?

Most likely a part of the exhaust system has rusted and rotted. I can't think of to many other things that could cause excessive noise.
