In Reply to: Need help on exhaust selection. posted by edro on April 18, 2002 at 21:51:45:
Scorpion - Rubbish, No X pipe, no cats, very noisy & Stainless
Supersprint - Good, X pipe, sporty note, no cats, mild steel
Supersprint main and Scorpion rear box - OK, X pipe, sporty note, mild steel centre, no cats, stainless rear box (bad if any repairs required)
Overall, I would get a mild steel system because I track the car and mild steel systems bend before they break, unlike stainless which is then a bitch to fix.
I need help in selecting a replacement exhaust. I need everything downstream of the exhaust manifold. I am looking for a center section with catalytic converters, but I don't absolutely need the cats. I am also looking for a replacement muffler as well. I would like to hear some suggestions on center section/muffler combination and pros & cons of each.
I am in S. Carolina now and don't require emission testing, but eventually I'll be in a state that does.
Also, is anyone using the Supersprint Stainless Steel Racing Pipes & Muffler?
I am possibly looking at Dimoff/Raven or Eisenmann Muffler.
Any input will be greatly appreciated. Thanks again.
