well definitely wanna get as much performance out of it as possible. but dont want it to sound too raunchy. i used to own a 02 zx3 with a race exhaust on it. it wasnt too shabby but the sound was a little too... "fart can-ish". ill check out the f2 one you mentioned. im definitely going for the deep sound. i like the whole "sleeper" style of modding. the only difference between the stealth and race exhausts would be the resonator anyways right?? just curious

yes. that will take some of the noise out. I always figure if a car does not have a fart can on it, it does not sound like one lol. I hate how some fart cans have this high pitch noise to them. search some f2 vids and trubendz

jdcochran, what did you mean by you didn't extend yours? I had to do an extension just to get the last hook to reach the hanger. And I have to do another extension because the tailpipe doesn't come out enough and it melted my diffuser...you really should make sure the gasses that exit the ehaust don't do so before it clears the body.
