I just bought this 1995 SC 5 speed (Great car right?) Well, I'm at a loss here. My exhaust is already mess, now it's terrible I went to the exhaust shop to have them look at my cats. One of them was rattling. So we took the cats off, one was completely missing it's element and i think the big third cat was broken up also. They deleted the cats, put in straight pipe, those pipes Y into a single magnaflow cat (they put this in last to try and kill the buzz)
after the magnaflow cat, it goes to a single 3 inch pipe, then to glasspack looking thing that was already installed when i bought it (like a resonator), then it Y's into two "turbo" mufflers with turn down tips at the bumper. At first it had flowmasters in place of the turbo mufflers, they told me if i replaced the flow's with turbo mufflers that it would fix the buzz also. So far it cost me 70$ to fix the cat issue, and then i spent 130$ on basically a wild goose chase. The exhaust sounds ok i guess, the biggest problem is at 2500rpm or so there's a buzz, while the motor goes through that RPM range. It sounds terrible, it's embarassing to even drive the car. Basically i believe the whole exhaust system from the headers back needs to be replaced, it's so hacked up. There isn't a piece of factory pipe left. It really just makes me sick, it's such a nice car. The exhaust has just ruined the experience, driveability.
What do i need to do, for an exhaust system. I'd like a little bit of "tone" but hell i'd even just take a "factory quiet" sound over that hideous buzz/resonation. I looked at SCP, but god i can't afford 750$ for a full exhaust system. There's gotta be some cheaper options?
I'll try and get a crude diagram made in paint, but i doubt it'll matter. I think you all will understand it's trash, and i don't think it's even worth dicking with anymore. I'll keep the mufflers they're brand new, maybe sell them or use them somewhere else. Please Help
