Re: aftermarket exhaust (laundrypers)

Try Eurosport tuning, they are Canadian so should save you a few shipping dollars.<p>Viva performance, and Evolve also sell cat backs for your car<p>Thare are a few more but I cannot recall their names right now

I have the EuroSport exhaust on my car. I love it, it's not over-the-top and gives the extra tone without ruining the image of the car. <p>If you're looking for performance, you'll get more out of a downpipe than an exhaust. Of course you can't go wrong doing both!<p>A cheap option for the time being, if you can't decide on an exhaust, you can get your resonator chopped out and have straight pipe welded in - usually for a good price. It'll prevent potential damage to your drivetrain, <i>and</i> give you some extra noise.<p>A custom exhaust will give you more options, but if you go that route, might as well have a custom turboback unit put together.

Re: (m3nt0s)

if the stock exhaust is going bad, i wouldn't spend the money for the resonator delete. <p>I also have an EST system on my car and it sounds great. Good price as well, and the shipping to you shouldn't be bad at all.<p><A HREF="http://www.eurosporttuning.ca/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=EST02&Product_Code=VLE-365-103&Category_Code=VL-S60-en" TARGET="_blank">http://www.eurosporttuning.ca/...60-en</A>

IMO you can get a custom 3inch catback and you would be fine I didnt spend more than 380 bucks and its all custom MagnaFlow pack and tip. <p><A HREF="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P03c_bQfLks" TARGET="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P03c_bQfLks</A><p><A HREF="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aNA5eEqbD98" TARGET="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aNA5eEqbD98</A><br>

What ever exhaust you do get, you need one of these to go with it:<p> <A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=123549" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=123549</A>

Re: aftermarket exhaust (850arrrsaylikepirate)

If you do a DP you will should get the stage 1 tune upgraded to stage 2 which will be a added cost,your most affordable option will probably be to have one made at a reputable exhaust shop the easiest will probably be the EST exhuast.Depending on how bad yours is EST usually runs a exhuast sale once or twice a year.

Custom is the way to go on these cars. Find yourself a nice shop and do it up in SS, pick your own muffler/resonator.. cheaper than anything else out there.
