    Our cars have a singular catback, that bolt-on.
    If you want to end before the axle you can buy a universal muffler and do it that way to.

    the pipe sizes on the aftermarket exhausts are different....easiest to just buy an aftermarket exhaust unless you wana do some custom work

    you can practically change the muffler out w/almost any brand out there and use the existing pipes as long as the inlet is 3"

    depends where you live.....the pipes are as follows, stock manifolds turn into headers (longtubes, mid lengths, shorties) then it turns into a y pipe which can be replaced with (catted y-pipe, offroad y-pipe(no cats), true duals, or x-pipe) into the exhaust which can be many different types.

    the only thing your going to have to cut is the exhaust where it goes over the axel, everything else unbolts and if you plan on going with a cam and heads down the road i would stay away from SLP......WAYYYY to loud. When you do your headers/exhaust i would recomend doing the plugs (NGK55's are good) wires (i went with MSD and havent had a problem) and motor mounts

    by just changing the mufflers your talking minimal gains compared to doing the whole exhaust
