Default Cheapo eBay catback exhausts.

I'm not looking for anything spectacular, just a 2.5" exhaust system.

Anyone buy one of the El Cheapo eBay special exhausts? Or am I just better off buying the muffler, cats, and piping and fabbing it up myself... more specifically having my friend weld the stuff together...

yeah, enthuza used to sell online before chris or chad or w/e sold to the new guy, who was going to offer special pricing here then completely fell off the f'ing face of the earth.

I bought one of the OBX catbacks on eBay....works fine for me....little loud, but not what i'd call 'ricey'.... I'm hoping once the turbo goes on the car, it'll muffle it a bit more.

I can get Yanaka stuff pretty cheap, if anyone's interested. They seem to be pretty decent.

The cheapest I've been able to find is enthuza. We could set up some sort of group buy (3 people) and save like 10%... not much.. but I doubt you'll be able to find a 2.5 inch catback for less than $350 new.

The OBX isn't 2.5. I think its like 2.25 or 2.375.

Savings are savings, especially if you're in California. You're right about the OBX, it's not deuce and a half.

I just got my enthuza exhaust in the mail 2 days ago. Tell Jason you're with me and maybe he'll give you a deal.

I'm going to go with Magnaflow. I find them new on eBay for $55 universal fit 2.5" all the time. Free shipping.

From reading the old posts it seems some here are of the opinion that enthuza is low quality. Like the welds don't looks quite as nice. Not sure what other reason though..

As long as the welds hold who gives a **** if they're ugly? It's not like you see the product every day like, say.... a shift **** or a steering wheel.
