For drowning out the voices in your head, I like my Stainless Works 3" cat back system. It is loud when I get on it and not intrusive at all on the highway. Mr. rberns saw some nice gains with high flow cats which has me thinking. It really depends on how loud you want it - there are several threads in the forums on various exhaust systems available, many with sound clips downloaded for your eargasmic pleasure.

Welcome to the site.

Actually it really shouldn't be that bad. I don't think anything bolts to the front of the engine. It should have a bracket that bolts in underneath in which the turbos would bolt to that. However, I would much rather have the supercharger than the turbos just for the fact that I don't need a hoist to do the work. If you had a lift it would/will be 1000 times easier.

Otherwise, any ASE Certified mechanic should be able to do the install for you. I don't imagine it will be cheap though.

Oh come on...let's all get together...coolers of beer ...lots of tools and some time - hell we can even do the programming ...then we can collectively watch Ken turn the key for the first time while holding our breath. When something goes wrong we

You're right Snake, you ARE my biggest fan.

I bet with a couple of leaf blowers we could give Grinch's car a boost like they did to that Corvette in Hot Rod Magazine. WHOOSH!!

Welcome Tattoo Ted. Lots of good exhaust systems out there. I have from the cat back... SLP Power Flo X crossover into an SLP LoudMouth 2 axle back. The x cross over is supposed to provide more low end torque even without a tune. And obviously more with a tune. I was going for performance and sound. It has a deep sound , not too loud but just right for me. Have fun with your mods !

Welcome Tattoo ted. I agree with Scott. beer, tools, and Kens car what could go wrong. I have lots of supervisor skills so I would be more then happy to tell people what to do while taking absolutely no blame but all the credit.
