ok guys i want your opinion on this idea for exhaust that i have....what i was thinking of either getting the SPW universal muffler canister (looks like a stock one)....or a dynomax or some other shitty brand.....welding on the stock integra LS dual exit pipe thingy (where the gasses come out).........buying either a B-pipe (pre made mandrel w/ 1 resonator).....or getting one custom made and buying mandrel elbows from JC Whitney and putting 2 resonators (all high flow).....make it look stock as hell but still have the performance of a catback.....what are your guyses thoughts?....(keep in mind i want to look stock as possible).....

I'm thinking about doing the same thing. Thinking about going Dynomax turbo (2.5 inch) no fancy tip or maybe buying a flowmaster, or thermal...still undecided on the muffler, take to a muffler shop to make the pipes, and spraying the whole thing a flat black color.

here check this out.....here is the SPW one

http://www.spwusa.com/Products.asp?UID=3530

there is the SPW one, here is the dynomax one

http://www.dynomax.com/thrush.stm

then get the dynomax resonator(s).... and put on the stock tip on there and i think it would look stock as hell with maximum performance gain......but i wonder how it would sound.....that is what i am worried about...i want 2 resonators just to keep it quiet

$260?!?!?!?! Damn, maybe you could buy the ES Oval muffler and silence it with Resonators or etc. The ES is only like $90-100. Damn, $260 for that universal muffler is a lot.

You might want to check into Borla also. Their universal oval mufflers look stock but are a straight through design. There even skinnier than the ES muffler and not as shiny. I had one on my tercel before (yes tercel:D ) and it sounded little raspy but a resonator would help to quiet it down. Speaking of resonators, where can you get them? On my civic I've been using a glasspack to act as a resonator, it lowered the tone, but I feel a real resonator would be better at quieting the exhaust.

hey, i need to get a new exhaust right now, my crappy pacesetter just had the tip rust off and it sounds like the worst thing ever. Yeah, i should not have gotten one of these but at the time i didnt know any better.

So, this custom exhaust thing looks real attractive after looking at all the $500 greddy systems and such. My question is, how well can an exhaust shop "tune" the sound. For example, if I want it pretty quite with a deep tone. After hearing my system now, the LAST thing I want is anything raspy or too loud. Why should i attract so much attention for 1-2 hp?

THEY CANT REALLY TUNE THEM THERE BUT IF YOU GET MANDREL ELBOWS AND PUT A RESONATOR OR 2 ON THERE YOU WILL BE FINE

I assume that the muffler makes the biggest affect on the sound, since the rest is all really the same. Anyone have experiance with the "cheaper" mufflers such as the ES poster earlier and borla or flowmaster? The cheaper the better, but in many cases you really do get what you pay for!
