oh keep in mind, since I will be doin a mini-me sometime this summer. which has a 4-1 header.
(got the d16z6 for $500 w/ stillen header)

ok, here's the deal, I'm in need of an exhaust
asap. my stock pipes are about to rot off in pieces. So what's a descent diameter cat back pipe to use (I'm thinking about gettin a custom install mandrel bent) and what muffler do you think I should use. Thermal, Tanube (sp?), etc...
I want something that's bigger than stock but doesn't look like a trash can sittin off the back of my car. a nice humm, or dep tone would be nice (don't wanna sound like a swarm of bees). I have a very nice looking rex that I don't wanna f^*k up.

do a custom exhaust system...choose your muffler and jes add a resonator in the downpipe. you'll save money

go with Greddy, you will not be dissapointed. I have the Greddy SP exhasut and the system is incredibly quiet. There are a lot of cops around where I like and the last thing that I need is a ticket for a lame ass sounding exhaust. Custom exhaust are a better deal, but keep in mind that they are custom! The dude will just weld some pipes to a muffler, no dyno tests to back it up. And for all you know, you may loose horsepower and especially torque. Go with with a tested brand.

Make your own custom straight pipe. Thats what I'm gonna do.
Besides if you know the right people its cheaper too.

losing hp and torque going custom.....for some reason i cant see that if its a performance muffler and a downpipe bigger than your stock one, but of course this works good if you have mods in your car like an intake and header.

greddy is pretty good. my buddy has that as well as i do.
the exhaust that hks makes for rexes looks stock and ive heard is decently quite but also gives great gains.
im thinking if your going for a combination of looks and power like im thinking your trying to describe give hks a shot. just check the site man.
heard good things about thermal too though.
greddy is also cheap, well sorta i guess compared to hks everything is cheap.

hey, thanks for all the great info.
now here's a challege. is there any manufacture
out there that has a muffler without a nasty ugly looking 4-6" exhaust tip. I'm your non-conformist
I don't like that look at all. I don't wanna look like a rice boy.
Greddy and HKS just don't fit my prefferences.

CRX-YEM...if you are lookin for a muffler without a tip then you can go with any flowmaster, raven, dynomax sort of muffler .....weld it on... and have a regular ol exhaust with a regualr ol pipe that looks stock. there are many manufacturers that sell mullers withou tips.
