Default Exhaust Shopping List

Here is what I want:

High Flow Cat
High Flow Exhaust
Cat Back Pipe Replacement

For the pipes I just want them to be replaced Im not looking for some high performance stuff. The ones on my car have been there since the car was made so I could imagine some new pipes or pipe would be a good thing. Budget is around $400 for the parts and installation so give me something good. Thank you!

You should keep your pipes b/c thier probably stainless.
Highflow cat/muffler would be good though.

Well muffler wise, most people will tell you, Flomaster 80 series, or Magnaflow F-body muffler. I got one for $41 from Full boar. Works for me. I would get 2.25" piping on a N/A vehicle. Although most piping does not really go bad too often.

Cat wise, I will let others steer you in the right direction.

For the full boar, I would contact jones exhaust/ full boar directly. They will tell you who they sell to, who is in your area. Then contact them locally. They can usually give you a good deal.

Good replacement pipe is pretty expensive.
I'm next to positive that you have stainless steel right now. That will hold up much better than the usual aluminized steel they slap on exhausts noramlly at a shop. A replacement stainless exhaust will be expensive and alum steel is not the way to go.

Yea like that guy you met for yours. You say you kept the stock exhaust tips? I want some nice ones, prefferably a 4 pipe design but prices for good ones are kinda high. I'll have to search around for the tips and the cat.

Tips i got were pilots. They are 3.5 inch tips, sold at walmart for $12.88. They are nice, shiny and work well. You can keep the stock tips, I obivously did not.
