I thought you'd like it. I also like that the 2nd post for a thread dedicated to a small county in Florida is from an Oklahomoian and proud Canaida-an.

Awsome.

The H or X pipe is fine, but if I was to do it over again, I'd keep the stock CB, put in Maganaflow mufflers and have the resonator cut and straight pipes put in. I'd only put new mufflers in last though.

If you know the guy, make him only charge you parts. Tell him to suck it on the labor.

I think I would go H pipe, like the sound better.

That might be a good avenue to go. First step, and a cheap one, is to get rid of the resonator, that will get me a little more volume out of the pipes and keep me happy for a few weeks, hopefully by then I will be able to get the next step.

Excellent. You should take the resonator, drop it off the top of a tall building, and see how close it will get to China.

My poor post count.

Brighthouse is coming to fix my internets tomorrow afternoon so I can get back on the COD.

If I had to do it again I would also just get a custom magnaflow exhaust made up. I like the sound of the spintech and some others, but they want an awful lot of money for something that just makes sound. I think straight pipes welded in plus some headers would make for a solid sounding car.

It doesn't look it, but it is. Just wait til you have to pick it up. I hope you rent a forklift, or your medical insurance covers a back transplant. My uncle pulled mine out. He didn't know how much it weighed and it crushed his chest. RIP.

Without the resonator, my car has a curb wieght of 2,450 lbs. Ya, it's that heavy.

My post count didn't change.


The pacesetter CB actually sounds alot like the magnaflow. Gravana has the CB for about 300 and it comes with an Hpipe. Im gonna look and see how much it costs to get the resonator cut out and the pipes welded in and compare. I dunno, its not happening tomorrow anyway.

The stock exhaust has to weight 50 lbs. The mufflers hurt a lot when they fall on you and the pipes are around .5" thick. I'm pretty sure I lost 30 lbs and gained +2 cool points for taking my stock system off.

See what you exhaust shop buddy can do for you. See what a custom stainless 2.5" catback will cost with magnaflows. I was quoted less then $500 at an exhaust shop down here.

Ya, the stock exhaust, once a little work is done doesn't sound bad. It also has better tips than any of the aftermarket setups that I've seen have,

Alright, ill check it out. What particular magnaflows do you have? A local guy has just magnaflows and they don't sound much different than stock.

I love the stock tips, whatever exhaust I go with im gonna have those put on it. I don't like how all these companies put their name and logo on theirs. I also hate the rolled edge.

I have no clue what the actual Magnaflow number on my exhaust is. What ever mufflers come with their catback. They don't sound good with the stock manifolds, they need LT's at a minimum, with a cam they'll sound better. They also don't make much noise below 3K, after that it's over.

The magnaflows I have heard on stock set ups are pretty weak. That why I am hesitant to go that route.

I may have to attend a Brevard meet. Orlando is the get-together failbarge, and my car won't make it to Tampa without seizing, for realz.

I went to Doubles on Wed for old times sake, and they wouldn't let me in because they thought my car was an import...


...oh yeah, it is. Shit.
