Default 3 inch exhaust.

so i removed the dual exhaust setup on my car and started running 3'' inch pipe.the problem is what muffler should i use a flowmaster or a can.i like the way russmans exhaust looks,with the cocked fartcan.but thats a NB.
DECISIONS???HUH

Mines the center exhaust halfway down the page (3-inch all the way back). We used a Magnaflow and I really like the sound. It's very free flowing and, in my opinion, looks great.

just say NO to flowmaster (or anything built like it)

anything that's got a 13" can will fit in the space between the bumper support and the rear subframe- if by left you mean the exhaust/driver's side

What i'm planing on doing is running a 4" or 6" round muffler before the diff. Then just run a tip out the rear.

was thinking about this with that greddy muffler i have,but considering its so big i was thinking about a fart can at the ***.

i check out magnaflow and borla,and thought borla was over priced.

I would even pass on Borla. Magnaflow sounds great, lasts forever and flows well. I won't use anything else. Brain can get the deals on Magnaflow components.

it's enough, dynomax mufflers are typically "turbo" mufflers. are you leave 1-5 ponies on the table? maybe.

ok,my exhaust is on the car.just want to get a big chrome tip like this.
at idle the car is very quiet ,and at 3000 rpm and up is sounds awesome.turbo definatly spools quicker.

i will get pics as son as painted and get the crome piece.

any suggestion on where to get a big obnoxious cocked crome piece.i was thinking pepboys and buying the ones people put on there big trucks.
