Focus Exhaust.

I am looking to get a new exhaust system on my 04 STV. I need some help with picking a muffler. I want something with a deep sound not ricey. I hate to be vague but i dont know a lot about this.

magnaflow is always a good choice in my opinion.

I like Borla, cuz I have it. The sound is great, it does not sound ricey at all. It's not V8 deep but it is close, I like it when above 6k it kinda sounds like the 350z high pitched exhaust. But the downside is that Borla is expensive.

Like idk what i have on it now but it only gets loud when i lay into the car. I want something that will push up some HP but at the same time has some sound to it when i am driving around town.I don't want something people can hear it 4 blocks away. With video clips you don't know just how loud it is.

the exhaust on the svt now is a pretty good system......so going aftermarket is only gonna give ya sound for the most part....N/A (F/I is a different story).....any hp is so small that you won't notice it.....but its still fun to hear a good setup rip through the gears!!!!!

DIY all the way... exhaust mods are really easy to do. basic tools and maybe a saw are all you will need. If you know somone with a lift you can use for a bit it helps a ton.. trust me on that one

Exclamation

500-600 bucks what?? Borla which I heard is really expensive is only 400 through cfm, and I think you can find mrbp? at like 295-325. Just look around and search for it, don't settle on just one site.
