I'm considering getting an ebay exhaust system. I have done the "search" section and could really read up on what I'm wanting to know. I'm considering buying this (http://www.ebay.com/itm/00-04-FORD-F...6ca8b3&vxp=mtr) exhaust system. Was wondering if anyone has been happy with similar ebay purchases?[scratch]

a 4.5" tip is a little excessive... but if that's your thing. My concern would be that all they talk about in the description is the titanium tip and not so much about the muffler. I would be worried about the sound it would also make it will most likely provide the higher "import" sound rather then that which Borla, Magnaflow, or Flowmaster.
The cost is good.. 150 with free shipping so $150 for CAT back is not to bad even if it just just gets used for pipe and you replace the muffler.

Yeah. I checked that seller feedback and it wasn't so good. But I literally found the same exhaust from a different seller for the same price. And he has a much higher positive rating.
As far as the sound, yeah, I figured it sound much more ricey but it will def be an improvement over the stock exhaust. And believe me, if it way too loud I will take it off. $150 is a good price and for the minimal HP gain I'd get from it should be alright until I can get a nicer exhaust.
btw, I seriously need to post a picture of my ZTS for my avatar. js

I basically have the same exhaust on my car and it actually sounds really nice. No ricey tone whatsoever. The tip is sorta big and might rub up against the bumper and melt it but its not terrible looking. Il try to post a vid clip of it.

LoL. Well I still ordered it but when you're done with that 3incher thrizzle let me know and I'll take it off your hands. Especially if you have other parts lying around I may need. Intake, headers, etc... The exhaust is my first performance mod sooo...

this has been talked about many times before... on some ebay exhaust the pipping is actually like 2.15'' and thin in material, weldings are crap even though they look nice, exhaust muffler is crap = no name brand prob from china, flanges will prob leak... expect rust or braking 1-2 years after installing...
I'm not planning to keep this exhaust for long. Just something to tie me over for now. That's why I asked. I was looking at the magnaflow and steeda but as long as this one can get me until about winter i'll be pleased.
