Im planning on making my own exhaust, just wondering what type of muffler everyone is using, looking for good performance, reasonably loud comparable to a borla or jackson

Couldnt find any posts over homemade or custom exhausts so
If I could get pics and types of mufflers everyones using it would help give me ideas thanks!

Hey Sid, got any pics from further away, so as to see the exhaust in conjunction with the rest of the rear of the car? Looks pretty decent from what I can tell....and oh, instead of using gobs of RTV, you could've bought real gaskets...they're only like 5 or 6 bucks each...

I have the same question than slutz4, and add one more what material did you use, SS or mid steel?
I was told, from a guy that build's exhaust for the rally drivers that SS isn' t a good choice.
The setup of Sid is great. By the way Ilmotorsport sell's the exhaust cover.

that was just a interim fix. the bolt also has the wrong washer lol.

here are a few farther away. not bad for a 15$ muffler

Cheap out completly and go to home depot and but 2.5" fence polls and clamp them together or weld if you have it.

I just cut off my rice POS that came on it when I bought it and put a 23" res on. It isn't loud and it isn't quiet. It has a nice throaty sound.
