Dual Outlet Exhaust

Sorry, I tried searching and kept getting the search flood error...not sure exactly why. Please forgive me if there are other threads on this.

I've gotten some quotes and have seen photos of some dual outlet exhausts on our cars (talking hatchback in this case). A borla muffler with the bumper cutouts would run me around $656. It seemed high to me, so I wanted some opinions from you guys.

Would it be cheaper to chop off the "lunchbox" and run dual piping out to the bumper? I could dremel the valance myself to save some labor. What would I need to watch out for as far as exhaust hangers, etc? I'd love to have a dual outlet system, but $656 for a muffler and piping seemed too high for me.

Thanks for any input and information!

Would only be for Looks. You would not have dual exhaust. So if looks are important go for it.

I ran a $100 MazdaSpeed3 catback off someone who's upgraded.


I thought it looked pretty damn good and OEM.

How did it bolt up? Looks like a great deal for $100. I held out for the J2 Engineering myself. I still have yet to put it on.

If your wanting a dual outlet system.....Get a Magna flow gen3/4 Camaro muffler & have your local muffler shop fab it up for you. They could also carve out the outlets on your bumper cover. Magna flow is a great cost effective muffler... But you really can't beat a Borla muffler......
