Custom Exhaust

Ok guys, i have done my research on the exhaust for the 3.8L, i know im not going to come close to the tone that i had with my 4.6, however to save a few hundred bucks i was thinking of fabricating my own.

Start by taking out the res and the whole cat back piping, im thinking of going with a mid mounted Cherry bomb muffler(20 bucks max) and by following the bends of the stock pipework, create a 2 1/4" exhaust to the back one single pipe, with a nice borla like quad tip.

why single pipe, its different, and i dont want to disrespect my old birdie by creating an exhaust that woudl match my old one. i think it woudl sound pretty good, thoughts, ideas, flamming lol if a mid mounted mag sounds great, i woudl think a mid mounted cherry bomb would sound pretty good as well.

yeah i know LOL nothing sounded as good as my old bird did, but i want a slight rumble its too quiet, the 3.8 motor itself sounds beefier than my old mazda 3.0 i had and the exhaust i put on there was pretty mean sounding,
