Catback Exhaust Installed

Just wanted to brag about the sudden lightening of my wallet. I got the muffler installed sat on the focus. I bought a Borla muffler online and then had a local exhaust shop put a 2.5" piping from cat back. The exhaust shop cost me about 90 bucks and the muffler i bought online was like 80. Huzzah for a new exhaust for cheap (wanted borla sound but for less than $370). If your around Holland, MI and want a good exhaust shop, I would deffinatly suggest this exhaust shop(G & M Express). I also got a 1 year warranty on the exhaust.

Nice deal, it seems custom is usually cheaper, but they most likely use cheaper materials. I doubt they will warrenty it for 1,000,000 miles (or the life or the car) like Borla would. But hey, I'm all about spending less, good job!

Ill get an audio up once the weather isnt so crappy. Everyone thats heard it says that they like it. I used a borla muffler so that is warrantied and the exhaust system is warrantied for 1 yr. Ive heard very good things about the exhaust shop too. The sound is deeper and louder. I would say around the noise level (but not tone) of deleting the lunchbox. I love the sound of it when its idling, its a deeper rumble. I was really pleased b/c i didnt want to get the crappy ricer exhaust sound.

I can get some pics up but its been raining lately. The muffler is now in the location that the resonator was in. They still ran the piping all the way out the back bumper using the same path the the stock ran. I still need to cover up the piping with a tip. I bought the borla muffler on ebay. If i get some time today ill pull the car in the garage (not my month for garage) and take some pics of the setup.
