HMm.. sounds good. NOW to go ask around to see if I can get anyone to say that it's possible to do this set up. Asked one shop.. they said I'm out of my mind cause the car's too small or some bull... lol
Good idea. You said you replaced your third cat with an x pipe, I do not see an x pipe.... am I blind? It could just be hard to see. I guess that's where the "resonator" was, I think I can see it now, some what.
i saw someone on here with NO X PIPE and a true-dual muffler where urs are and he snaked them around a little cleaner than yours. I was at a couple of shops that said no way. i was under the car with them, and showed them and they said they weren't gonna waste their time. bet i can find a shop when i have the $$$$$$
Well, if you're looking for cheap and something that will work you could use my old setup. I'm actually going to sell it very soon. I can't post on the selling thread because i don't have enough posts yet. Here's a pic of my old setup. It's all welded and with Borla XR-1 race mufflers that are 12 inches in length and 2.5 straight in/out. It's loud, and sounds very unique to most cars. It's all aluminized tubing as well, but the mufflers are obviously stainless. It's also got two high flow cats ($90 each) and the Borla mufflers aren't cheap either.
let me know what you think. This was on a DOHC in which the manifolds are a different offset. So you'd have to cut the pip and weld the correct angles to go onto the SOHC motor that i'm assuming you have. The bungs for both sets of front and rear O2's are there. This would be a "Legal" system as it has mufflers and cats.
I couldn't imagine how much it would cost to ship that thing... It's all welded one piece. I could cut it if you like at a point of your choice, but i'd really rather not ship this thing. It's located at my fathers house in Port Tobacco, MD. let me know...
Hey i have a 97 3.8l v6 and im not sure when i need to do exhaust work to it. Should I? it runs but I am not sure what needs to be done. Anyhelp would be appreciated. I prefer a less noise exhuast. Thanks.
you dont need exhaust unless your cramming in more airt more air coming in more air is going out and eventually the exhaust starts to restrict flow. so eventally you'll need larger diameter pipes. if you going for less noise your going to restrict flow.
