View Full Version : Custom exhaust??

02-29-2004, 12:33 AM
In my quest to relieve the pressure the crappy stock exhaust has, I am now looking into getting a custom exhaust made for my SC. However, I have a few questions about getting this done.

First, having the crossover pipe. Is it essential to help keep pressure equal across all cylinders? Is it just for sound? I'd probably get this done anyways, but just wondering what the major advantage of having this is.

Second, does the SC have a stock resonator, and dual mufflers? If so, would running pipe back to mufflers alone make it sound bad or stupid? I am wanting to run either 2.5" or 3" all the way to two Borla mufflers. Would that work alone, or should I have some sort of resonator before the mufflers?

Lastly, should I definantly think about getting the stock manifold ported and just keeping that through any mods I do. Headers look nice, but do they really add that much if i don't plan on MAXING out the performance of this engine?

Any help, info, opinions, etc would be appreciated.
