    Talking Car is finally getting Exhaust

    After reading the forums the weather here in michigan was finally nice enough to take the car in to get the exhaust. I have having electronic cut-offs installed along with 3in exhaust from the y pipe back and a magnaflow muffler with chrome dual tips installed. I should be gettin the car back tomorrow. I wanted to keep the cats and everything so that the car remains conservative for a daily drive but can be as obnoxious as i want it to be with the cut-offs when i go to cruises. We have been dealing with this muffler shop for many years and they are only asking 650 installed. I hope this sounds good and i want it to be as clean as possible. Im going to try and post pics very soon!

    Congrats on the new exhaust, your gonna love how the car sounds with the Magnaflow's, especially with the cut out open. I had that set up on my last car and it sounded deep.

    That is a bummer. Make sure to look their work over good -- have them put it up in the air for you. Check your clearances, especially where the exhaust crosses under your brake and fuel lines on the driver side of the tunnel.

    I am not concerned with their work. they have done many performance exhausts for my family in the past. In light of the situation they are completely redoing my exhaust from the headers back but he is placing the cut-off after the y pipe, that to me sounds less effective but that might just be me..

    You don't put a singular cutout before the merge

    It's good practice to check the mileage before you turn a car over to strangers
