I was wondering what everyones preference on exhaust is. like brand, turbo back or cat back, or just DP. Let me know i still have stock exhaust and im dying to get exhasut done.
Thanks, Trent

For performance i would go with a full turboback exhaust, and cat eliminated if you can 3" all the way. As far as brands go i prefer to build my own but if you dont have access to the equipment for that, the megan racing exhaust and some of the ebay exhaust have worked quite well for people and arent that expensive.

I had a local DSM shop fab and weld mine up, full turbo back exhaust. Sounds awesome, very deep tone, not ricey. Also, I wasn't stuck with one of the ugly mufflers that some of the pre-fabbed kits come with.

Anyway, it was cheaper, and personally, I think the quality is better because if I have issues, they cover it for life.

Please, everyone take a look at rule #7 again.

If you're going to do it, do the whole thing. Cat-backs alone don't do much, DP's alone don't do much. Together they do a lot.

I'm happy with my 3" from Extreme, but it's a 1g system. I'm sure they make 2g's as well. Thermal also makes excellent setups, if you like a nice deep sound that's not too overpowering.

Or, you could find a local shop that can bend piping, buy a 3" Magnaflow off Ebay, and have the shop weld it all up.

To save some cash with an exhaust system you could.

I bought a megan racing 3" downpipe off ebay, had an exhaust built from a local shop (not the best work) and bought a magnaflow muffler. sound was good and wasn't that loud at all considering it was 3inches.

here's some photos:

2G AWD





on mine i just dont like the way the welds look:dunno: or the bends. :chair:

Haha yeah I hear ya. At least you got 3'' so that way, at worst its like have a 2.5''.

Unless youre getting past the 300 mark, 2.5'' and 3'' really dont make a difference.

Alrighty i went to the local shop yesterday and he said the only way he would do it is if I buy a chip from him for my O2 sensor. I know that the O2 sensor is behind the CAT, but i didnt think that it would cost $700 to do any help haha.
Thanks, Trent

Thanks, Trent
