Exhaust yes or no???

I just purchased a used jrsc on ebay and it came with an aftermarket exhaust (ford racing I believe??) I've read that the svt exhaust is very good on its own but wonder if seeing I'm adding the forced induction if the aftermarket would be better? any help would be GREAT! Thanks!!!

The SVT header is the best out there. Get it Jet-Hot coated, lose the heat shield, and show it off.

Was that kit on ebay? I saw that on there, killer deal. Also when I has my JRSC installed, for awhile I was running on all stock exhaust. Then got a magnaflow catback and didnt notice any kind of change, just sounds better.

I replaced my stock catback w/the BORLA after some wingnut on a rainy night rearranged my rear bumper and screwed up my exhuast tip. I saw the muffler shop take off the stock catback and it is ANGLE welded, not MANDREL bent probably to save some $. Anyway, I love the BORLA and I did notice a difference on the butt dyno between it and the stock catback.

Yeah, when I had my ATR exhaust, it definitely felt 'better.' No 10whp jump, but a few. Efficiency is better in every way...

Why not... yeah the SVT exhaust is good but, there are some good aftermarket exhaust set ups that are equally as good (some maybe slightly better) and you can get a little more sound out of your car, maybe lose some weight. I know my MBRP is lighter than the stock svt exhaust was. Maybe not by much but, every pound counts. I'm using the MBRP with my JRSC and love it. Go for it, it's an easy swap. You can always go back to stock if you want.
