In Reply to: Benefits from Exhaust Systems? Need more Power! posted by Q-Bert on March 12, 1999 at 19:07:50:
The problem with exhaust systems is that the power they create is usually more on the top end instead of the low. This is because free flow exhausts relieve back pressure which helps acceleration. Thus you don't want to lose all backpressure or you will lose some acceleration. For a cheap exhaust solution, you could try ANSA, custom, some of the universal dtm, big tip mufflers out their, HKS (I don't know how expensive they are), etc... Remus, and supersprint would probably be two expensive for your (or at least that what you made it sound like, but maybe not). But the two best exhausts for your car are probably tri flo and supersprint (that's why supersprint is so expensive, these two will probably give you the most power). If you can spend some dough, I would reccomend supersprint. If you just get a muffler and not the full system, get Remus, I love the look and the sound (especially the carbon fiber tips, now that looks bomb). Good luck in your search. The best advice I can give you is to go to your local performace store that sells high performance muffler brands, just tell them what you want and how much money you want to spend and they can set you up. But in the end it is your choice.
hope this helps
