    T304 stainless FTW, if you want an exhaust to last, you've got to go stainless, also a system on a car rarely driven will fail much quicker then a daily driver, on a daily driver, the engine gets hot enough to burn off the moisture in the system. What happens is moisture produced from combustion combines with the byproducts coating your exhaust, and forms acids, these acids are what causes rapid corrosion in the system. This even happens when the car is sitting, temperature changes cause moisture to condense in the pipes. Try taking a piece of pipe, setting it outside, and go look at it first thing in the morning before the sun comes out.

    Unfortunately I lost my muffler on a hump last week. So mine just sounds like a lawnmower at all RPM's. I'm just going to replace it with a stock one. I like to keep good ol' Rhonda stock.

    the factory muffler and system is horribly restrictive, you can really make a difference on this car by getting something better
