Re: Need Ideas

you might wanna try searching on here, it will make you and everyone else a lot happier, I would go to a shop and have them do your exhaust though, it will probably be a lot cheaper

Re: Need Ideas

When you compare an exhaust like one custom built and one purchased there most likely wont be much difference in the pipe itself IMO. If you do have a shop make you one make sure you have it mandrel bent and made of stainless steel.

Re: Need Ideas

3" piping has been dyno proven to give more hp than 2.5"

I read that somewhere as well. It was tested on a stock and a lude with cai.

Do you remember if they had tuned systems? I think they were stock tuned.
