After reading alot about people upgrading their exhaust systems, I'm thinking of doing the same. However, some like to go the prefab route, while others go to a local muffler shop and have them put together something...I'd like to get the most out of the exhaust upgrade, so I'll go 3"...but what about some people not putting a cat in the line, but rather simply put a straight pipe instead...does this add any extra HP? Our county is no longer giving emissions tests, so I'm not worried about that...Also, what muffler should I go with and is splitting the exhaust right before the muffler worth it? If it's just for looks, then I would say no. I saw a muffler from Flowmaster that looks good, but should it matter that it's a generic muffler?<P>Thanks again for any response,<BR>Matt<P>

I read your reply concerning this exhaust down pipe, but I'd rather not go through the trouble of rerouting something if I don't have to. Is this something I should plan on doing if I go 3"? If so, is it also something I would have to consider if I went 2.5" instead?<P>

Plan for it, but even what I did was no trouble at all, just one more re&re of the pipe. You are going to go through more trouble than that when you try to make your own system that looks good and will perform well with a sound that you will be happy with.
