Ok, I'm prolly gonna get flamed (to lazy to search ) for this but in a few days (once I get paid) I am taking my car down to the exhust shop to have it put up on the rack to see what they can do. Now, I already have a straight pipe in place of a resonator and dual flowmasters. I am looking at spening between $300 and $700 dollars. What can I have done (cats, pipes, etc.) and how much am I looking at spending. HP and sound gains? Sorry for the noob question, thanks for being patient with me.
Well if your going to admit your too lazy to search you just asking to get flamed. You can get a custom 2 1/4 setup with either a mid mount magnaflow or h-pipe with mufflers in the rear for probably like $500 maybe less. You need to give more info on what your looking for in sound ect.. and if you need cats in your area. DO A SEARCH next time theres probably 100s of threads on setup and take a look at the soundclips area for ideas.
How much HP are we looking at. Converting a stock exhaust system to flowmaster mufflers, 2.25' piping, magnaflow cats. and what should I have in place of the 3rd cat?
I think 2.25 is the stock size. I really wouldn't go much bigger than that with a stock engine. If I was really doing a complete exhaust, I'd go with shorties, cut off the cats. Have the 90 degree bedn on the drivers side removed, then install some free flowing cats. ONly 2. Get rid of the 3rd cat and change that into a Y pipe or H pipe. Keep my Dynomax bullet and just pipe frome there to the bumper. I might go up on pipe size I may not. I'm just a little over stock.
^In around the St. Charles/ St. Peters/ O'Fallon area. Like 20 min west of St. Louis...and yeah, this is the place (compare automotive) that wanted to $300 dollars to put on flowmasters! Lol. I think I'll shop around. Thanks again.
Well, if you feel like taking a drive, House Springs Discount Muffler (in House Springs, MO) is the place that does my exhaust work. They have a guy (who owns a 90 XR7, by the way) come in on Saturdays to do custom work. He is the one that did the exhaust on both my Splitport 94 LX and my DOHC 90 XR7.
