Default What to do about exhaust system

Getting near the end of my project now.. but i dont know what to do about an exhaust..

At the moment i have a 3" ARtech DP on the way that goes as far as the Cat or there abouts.. would it be best to continue the 3" to a back box or does it matter?? also which backbox would suit..

(by backbox i mean rear muffler or whatever you american chaps call them)


Cheers

the only exhaust worthy to mate to the glorious Artech downpipe is an Artech exhaust. if your downpipe is 3" and you care about performance, you will make sure that the rest is also 3" and straight through.

Use a nice magnaflow muffler BUT make sure it's a straight through design and not a louvered muffler.

3" is perfect.
