    exhaust help

    I would like some input on some exhaust questions, i have had my 02 ta for about 6 months and i am finally ready to put some aftermarket exhaust on it. I will be honest, I don't have tons of money to do it perfect, i just want it to sound mean, maybe a cutout later, would a muffler do it or should i get the whole setup, i was curious about the loud mouth, but from the pictures i have seen with them i only see an in and 1 out on the muffler, how does that work with the dual pipes out the back, thanks for any suggestions you might have

    i would just start out with a muffler, if you want really loud get the above, a slp loud mouth*I the loudmouth II is a little quieter

    i started by getting a flowmaster 40 series, you can get a hooker muffler magnaflow, there are many to choose from, but if you want to be heard a mile away get the LOUDMOUTH

    I would get a magnaflow catback. Its not as loud as the loudmouth. I love mine, especially with pacesetter long tubes.

    I found a shop that installed them for pretty cheap. They take around 8 hours to install.

    that seems like an awfully long time, it only took us about 4 and a half tops and my friends dads shop... dynatech header systems and borla cat-back....

    They probably charged you for 8 hours...doubt it took that long though. Shops charge for time a job is rated for...not how long it actually takes.
