I know they have GReddy exhaust but that's it...no cat-back system

If I'm just gonna stay stock with my engine, going from stock exhaust to the 2 1/2" Borla system is there going to by and problems? And do I need a header? MPG's is my goal.

If you aren't going to tune-up your engine, you should stick with the 2.25" exhaust, Magnaflow is cool yet so is Borla and all the others except the ricers(5Zigen, Tanabe, APEXi). 2.5" won't fit on your cat either. If you go with 2.5", you'll need to get 2.5" headers, 2.5" flexpipe, and a 2.5" hi-flow cat. Just get 2.25"

Check out this exhaust I found. Is it worth it?

Just seeing how you all were talking bout dropping the rear axle to get the old one out and the new one in...i cut my old one out and the new one actually went under the axle. It is the Hks hi-power. I like it alot....not ricey at all, but more of a deep sound that isn't that loud until you get on it. Any suggestions on flex pipes and where to get them from?

Yep, that's what my Magnaflow sounds like. Except louder (since I have full exhaust)

Any comments on a JBA? That's what I'm looking at, but I haven't heard anything about it!
