Cheap Exhaust

I found an exhaust for about $270 on e-bay. Do you think its a good buy, or should i just pass on this one and buy a name brand exhaust????
Heres the link to it:

One of the best reasons, besides HP increase, to install an exhuast is for the note(Great exhaust note atracks attention)... If you go with a unknown brand you are really gambling. And not that im an advocate for spending cash but under 300 for a full catback sounds cheap, so I would question the quality first. And 2nd, if an exhuast could trully claim 30HP, then im sure we'd all be running this exhaust.

Research a little more. Just trying to help. I like my Borla, but yeah pricey. Heard lots happy with Flowmaster.. your options are out there..

Good luck..

I would say go for it, Looks pretty high quality to me!
Stainless steel muffler, smooth mandrel bends, Stainless tip & you can't argue with the price!! Im sure it you wont be dissapointed.


You probly won't see the ridiculas power gains that are claimed (as with any system) but you will see a difference.



I bought my Brother an Exhaust off Ebay for his Honda Civic for xmas & it sounded great!

Normally systems like what I got are like $500-600, but this was like under $300!

Yeah It was an unkown brand, but I was amazed at the quality! Seriously, You would have thought it was a name brand!
He gets complements all the time from people that have name brand stuff wanting to know what he has because his sounds better!

The bends were all smooth & mandrel, the entire system was stainless steel & fit perfect!

I even found some stainless steel headers & high flow cats (again none-name brand) new out of the box for dirt cheap! His car runs way better now..

Ebay is the shit!!




Keep in mind the one you are looking at is for a CREW CAB LONG BED! Not sure if that is what you have, double check & but Make sure you are buying what fits YOUR truck!

Also, MAKE SURE IT INCLUDES ANY GASKETS OR BOLTS YOU MAY NEED!
I didnt see any mention of Gaskets or Bolts in the ad, & you will need a new gasket!
Double check with them before you buy it, they should include those things with the system & it makes the install much more painless when everything you need is there.


ALSO BEFORE YOU BUY IT, TAKE A LOOK AT THIS

http://www.autoanything.com/exhausts...0A2579684.aspx

This system is $290! It's $20 more but it has FREE shipping so you will actually save $30!
it's a Gibson which is in fact a name brand!

This is for the allumized system, If you want Stainless steel then you'll be paying $390.
the only problem I see with this system is that only everything from the muffler back is pictured? does that mean thats all thats included?

As where the other system shows from the Y-pipe back, which would in fact be better.


It's up to you but there's my two cents.. well more like ten cents haha



Hope I helped & good luck with your new exhaust!!

I sent down to my local muffler shop when i was researching exhaust and they quoted me $270 for flowmaster cat back installed. I would shop around some more. You dont want to end up with a ricey exhaust. It really all just comes down to finding one that makes the noise you like.

just have an exhaust shop cut your old mufler out, weld in the muffler of your choice, and even add a nice shiny tip on.....you can probably do this for around and probably no more than $150.....and its basically the same thing as an expensive catback.

Well, i bought it. I seriously hope i don't regret this purchase.... Now, im thinking its gonna be too loud because i have a True Flow XDI intake. Oh well, i guess i have to wait to see. It came out to a total of $271.25. I'm going to install it myself. Thanks for everyone's quick replys.

how did she sound? i've seen the same kit on ebay and was wondering if it was worth the gamble of quality, performance, and sound over a "name brand"....

I think it sounds pretty good.....not TOO loud and and it doesn't sound ricey. Part of the stock exhaust needs to be cut off and re-used on the new exhaust. If you have an intake, the sound will be even better. I have the exhaust and intake on mine. I'm getting headers soon, so it will be even louder....

Hey, sorry for the late response.....
Its definitely louder, but not "annoying" loud. It doesn't sound "ricey" either. Overall, im happy with it. I do have an intake, so that helps make it a little bit louder. When you floor it, it sounds mean!!!!!

It has a different sound to it, but i wouldn't say it rumbles at idle. I'm eventually getting headers, so hopefully with the headers it will rumble a little...
