    exhaust is not super important but it is super popular...Most of anyone's ?s can be answered with the search function or simply by getting a hold of Dave because he has probably dealt with or experienced most exhaust combos

    I can look back at all the exhaust work I have spent $ on and wish I could go back and get most of my $ that I spent on all the different setups I tried

    i'm running midlengths into 2 high flows into a magnaflow dual in/out muff in place of res and dual all the way out the middle of rear...2.5" piping all the way through

    its not super loud cruising but at WOT i'm sure for pedestrians it sounds like you are under attack...v8 guys always ask what the hell is going on after I give them a show...its got some ponies too

    i think magnaflow has a more aggressive sound than borla but I have never used borla...prob not worth it for the $...

    dont expect much power gain from changing out exhuast components...you'll mainly get sound

    Deeper tone if you keep 3" pipe through tank than splitting into duals

    also best upgrades are usually near the front with ported manifolds and better downtubes

    Yea I gotta hear some more sound clips. Some magnaflows sound slightly ricey/ European like

    I know you don't get power gain unless you change the ENTIRE exhaust, like I have on my Camaro and Grand National. The only reason i want the exhaust changed IS for some better sound & air flow.

    I already have kooks headers sitting in my garage for power gain.

    I find exhaust to be te annoying subject usually brought up as a first mod by kids. I voted who cares as well. Once the real mods have peaked the best thing to do is find a good exhaust guy to bend you up a new system and weld it together. Until you have a need for an exhaust the only thing worth doing is gutting the third cat because it doesn't do anything anyway and doesn't get direct heat to make it operate properly so it clogs up.

    On the stock exhust from the supercoupes I liketo remove it. With aftermarket exhaust systems I prefer to use a dual 2.5 in single 3 out. The third cat i don' think applies to supercoupes just na 3.8 and 4.6 cars.

    FWIW I just ordered a Flowmaster Force 2 cat back incl. Res. & 2 series 40 mufflers direct fit. I will post the results in 2 weeks. I currently have ported collectors, hollow cats & a $27 http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/High-...#ht_1185wt_939 2 to 1 resonator & OEM mufflers. Yes on the exhaust forum.

    the headers are kind of worthless unless you know you will be modifying the engine later...I think ported stock manifolds can support 300rwhp and from my experience there wasnt much sound difference.

    biggest change in sound was length of exhaust...

    the shorter the louder and almost deeper of a sound you will get

    Not too worried about headers right now. But I am gonna do the engine over next year.

    Shorter the louder?!? Everyone I've talked to says longer the louder and deeper.
