What are you looking for? Just a different tone? If so, get a muffler you like & have a muffler shop weld it on or just go to a muffler shop. A 2.25/2.50'' mandrel bent system w/ a resonator/ muffler is going to start at $350. plus.

Are they mandrel bent w/ a muffler/resonator? OBX has a header that'd work for you.

Looks good in the pix. IDK anyone running that system. You could be the ginny pig & let us know. Probaby made in china w/ that price. I'd question the mounts & fit & quality.

$160 shipped for mandrel bent stainless steel sounds really cheap... I will agree with felixthecat that the fit and quality would be sketchy. I'd be worried it would be a pain to install.


You would make some other folks here happy if you tried it and were able to report back that it fit well and sounded good. I would be worried since it says it fits hatchback/sedans just the same..
