Exhaust

I'm planning on replacing my exhaust and going a little bigger. Anyone done this before? I'm thinking of going cat back, any advice on sizing and types of pipes?

Here are a couple options. I have heard great feedback on both systems. Also the FSWerks Stealth and Race systems. Only difference is the stealth has a resonator that drops the volume. If I were you I'd start with an off road pipe from someone like CFM (http://www.c-f-m.com/performancepart...it-128p769.htm) and go from there. The stock exhaust on the SVT is pretty good and an off road pipe will bring the power and tone around to a better level. Also the stock exhaust is stainless so thats a plus. Stock size is 2.25" and most aftermarket is 2.25 or 2.5.

FSWerks would be my recommendation for good sound. I've had the Stealth and now have the Race. If you want a good low sound get the Stealth. If you want your car to sound like you just pulled off a rally course get the Race

This ^^^^^^^ is why I suggested starting with an offroad pipe and going from there.
