what size pipe?

you still running a cat?

if you've still got a cat, I'd just put a straight pipe on it... hell, even without a cat, I might just run straight pipe! [Image: biggrin.gif]

a dynomax bullet is only $30 or so... if you want it quiet, something like a welded race magnum (oval) will be quiet and offer the best performance (same as straight pipe)

I have had good luck with flowtech's Afterburner(sounds like flowmaster),this has also been rated best sounding cheep muffler by CAR CRAFT magazine and Termiator (better flowing than the flowmaster 2 camber)

Find a straight-thru muffler...you may notice improved spool-times, etc., buy keeping away from any chambered mufflers...

question- what does a 2.3T sound like with 3" downpipe, stainless steel mandrel bent piping, no cat, no muffler, with 2 1/2" duals out the back? cause thats what im getting soon [Image: biggrin.gif]

what im wondering is if it's going to be too loud, are the cops gonna pull me over?

I have 3" exhaust with one terminator muffler that ends at the muffler. It's LOUD, but haven't been pulled over for it. Oboy can you hear the turbo spool up.
