I notice there is also a lot of people that say the race exhaust is ricey sounding It's hard to tell from a video but on their website the only difference I hear between the race and the stealth is the race is a bit louder is that really the only difference?
Use a sawall or hack saw to get the old system off. The fwerk's system is easy bolt on. It'd be great if you can use a rack. If not jack up the car & use 4 good jackstands. Try and get it 3'-4' off the ground. Theres a reason for the fwerks exhaust system= it fits & works great. Are you going to add a header? You have a 4 cylinder motor & you can only do so much w/ the exhaust. So as far as your saying the race exhaust is ricey sounding= yeah it is. Go for the stealth system & enjoy the drive.
