Most around here tend to have better things to do with their money than waste 1k on exhaust
or cheaper venders, not that I don't like the people at FM, BUT I'd venture Abe/ARTech would make you a manifold, dp, and full exhaust for the same price (depending on how much fancy your routing is).

I'll call you stupid now and a year from now when I'm making 300+hp on my cheap and ebay stuff. I've got less than 1k in my turbo system total that's mani, turbo, bov, exhaust. Skillz over dollars anyday

Who's that stupid *** noob, slideruler? We should have a rule against ******* drifters that bring nothing to the table but questions about "baller" ****. I bet he would drop ~$250 on caliper covers

Dude, your in Miami....

Swim/raft over to Miami Mufflers. 3" straight from DP, into a magnaflow. Stupid Cheap...

IN FACT, they may still have the jig from when me, Phil, and like 2-3 others had a lil GB action going...

Don't remember exact, but I want to say $200ish...sounds good, flows well, simple/cheap/effective and local.


Edit: You can search on here. Me/Phil posted pics/vid in a thread... try Miami Mufflers, or exhaust interest, exhaust GB, sound clip whatever...pretty sure it's Phil that posted the actual pics/vid if you want to look under his s/n....Or just hit him up as he prob has them laying around.

It was just over $300 for the exhaust. Still a great deal.

Well I started with the enthuza $470, and a test pipe $65.

then I needed to repair and replace the muffler after wiping out my tail, so another $80 muffler and $100 to a shop for welding and a bend.

Then I added a resonator: $30

Then I had to repair it after hitting a manhole cover on an unpaved street: $60

Then I added a metal core cat: $200

Then I replaced the muffler again: $99.81 + bends and hangers: $60

so around $1155. lol.


my DP was $399 and I only have had this one since fitting the BEGi manifold.

My exhaust is worth well over 2,000 because I welded "JDM" into the piping.

You're looking at a solid 1500. Change "magnaflow" to "JDM supeR flow" and you're looking at an easy 4500. 5k if you powdercoat it pink.
