    Best Bang for Buck$$ Cat Back C5 exhaust system??

    Anyone have any thoughts? I am looking at upgrading a stock 01 C5 Coupe. Have already installed an x-pipe. What is the best bang for the buck cat back exhaust system now? Any one messed with the ones on ebay for $490 shipped? They look good but price seem to good to be true???

    I believe ecklers sells the same system as ebay for around the same kind of money.

    Best bang for the buck would probably be the Z06 TI exhaust. You can get a used set for around $450 or less, its lighter weight and freer flowing than the base C5 exhaust. If you want aftermarket then Id go with Corsa.

    i bought single tip borlas for 690 bucks ( i LOVE my exhaust and get nothing but compliments) but I think they ve raised the price last time i checked (??)
    try westcoastcorvettes.com, otherwise look for a used exhaust possibly off craigslist (i dont like dealing with ebay- too many scams i hear about)

    Hey guy... would you say that they're almost too loud? I don't want something that annoys me inside the car. From the sound clips I've listened to they seam mild till you really get on the gas? Yes???

    My sincere apologies. I forgot forum rules that if a thread was started over a year ago not to post questions to it. I hope you can forgive me.
