Default helping exhaust sound better(louder)

i have quick and quiet on my new mariah. the problem is that there is not much diffrence between above and below water sound. i have noticed if im looking into the above water exhaust tips on the transom there are flaps in each tip that are spring loaded that seal the pipe. i think to keep water out. my question is could i remove them to make my exhaust flow a little better? i think the only time water might get in is when i'm backing off the throttle , stopping. thanks....

NO!!!! do not remove these if your exhaust is at the water line. and no it will not help it to sound better, buy some aftermarket exhaust first.
