exhaust question
 
im planning on getting the fswerks race exhaust and is the assembly paste needed. and i was also wondering if there was anything cheaper i could use.

I didnt use the paste and have no leaks. I am not sure of similar products, although Im sure there are some out there

you get what you pay for when it comes to aftermarket parts. any duratec sedan 05-07 and all 08-11 exhaust will fit. there are less expensive options, but there is a difference. Performance isn't much different between any of them, but the sound will def be. also look at the material used. Most are stainless steel and are great. a less expensive option is aluminized. still works fine, but runs the risk of rusting and not as durable a material.

Didn't use the paste either. I smelled carbon for about a week, but after that- nothin.
The FSWerks race exhaust is awesome. Their is none of the "BRAAAP" noises like a lot of Hondas and Nissans; nor is it going to give a "TIN-Y" kind of sound (sorry can't come up with a better description than that). I've been very happy with mine. It has a great low-baritone sound at idle, but when you get on the throttle it comes alive. One thing I will never get over is simply starting the car- I love tappin the gas and hearing the exhaust gurgle and pop. ENJOY MAN!

Just by listening to the videos I would never go for the race exhaust, I would have to go stealth. I am not much for sound unless it's in a nice old v8

TruBendz makes a stainless steel option with MagnaFlow muffler.

i would say get the stealth if you ever plan on getting a header... there are so many people trying to swap race for stealth

I concor w/ that. Get a header & your looking for a stealth.

I agree with this 100%!
In total I have spent over $800 in the several times I have changed my exhaust until I finally got the tone with the noise level I wanted. I wished I would have gone stealth the first time being that I ended up adding a header. Rather than spending all that money modifying my trubends exhaust 7 times total... Now I have 2 mufflers and 2 resonators under my car(= but it sounds damn good
