  • Is this a good deal

    So I stopped by my local exhaust guy yesterday to get a quote. He's saying about $320 for two dynomax borla mufflers and to cut out stock res along with new tips. I have listened to the sticky sound clips on here. You guys think thats the way to go and do you think its a fair price?

    Also I found a sticky on here about gutting the y pipe but the link is dead. Any help there? I was planning on getting a high flow cat as well or no cat seeing as I dont have emmissions/smog tests.

    The parts that are "gutted" are the precats. Deleting the main cat will likely produce rasp.

      So removing the res and going with two mufflers should be good enough for some sound without rasp?

          what was found was reference to optimizing the stocl y-pipe. The stocl y pipe is created by taking a straight peice of pipe and basically bending it in half after cutting it open. So in the y pipe there is the wall of the pipe. Optimizing it just removes that part of the pipe.
