Exhaust seems to be the topic O' the day....

Just got my car up on a lift this AM and the PO put together a totally cheesy exhaust system that would make the even the cro-magnons at Midas cringe! And since PO just welded up a new OEM muffler instead of using clamps, that will also become insta-junk.

Anyway, I am now shopping for a new center section (from the header flange back) and rear muffler. Since the crappy system that I already have does in fact have cats, smog will not be an issue -- I can just switch in time for the bi-annual check up.

Based on initial research, it looks like Supersprint is my best (and least expensive) option and that BMP has best prices. My options for the center section are a straight-through pipe (50 bux cheaper) or the resonator center section. Does anybody have experience with either setup, and what are the pros/cons. I have been following the recent threads on exhaust and I do not want to pay a grand for the stainless center section with cats -- though it looks like a nice option.

Any comments are appreciated!

Bill
