mbrp is a GREAT exhaust.. i have it... is that 320 for just the exhaust and labor? if its both then that's not that bad actually. If it's just the exhaust then just get the mbrp and do it yourself.. It's simple.

It's all a matter of preferance when it comes to xhaust. you have to take in to consideration what do you want from you car, or better yet what are you going to do in the future w/ you car? If your going to stay N/A then I would say 2.25 but you could go 2.5 if you want nothing wron w/ it. As far as what exhaust to get I have the FS stealth but it seem alot of guys on here have the MBRP and like it. If it's for the 2.3 I think it should still fit the 2.0 but not possitve, I will let some one else chime in on that one. good luck dude

^^^ why? every cat back will yield you the same performance results. It's all a matter of what sound you prefer.

hatches, if that is for a borla installed, BUY IT!... its 2.5 right? borla is best. i assume ur not getting the resonator there, but thats still a great deal, and it will sound VERY nice.

if that $325 includes the exhaust tip i'd go for it, borla sounds amazing and its always nice to have a shop put it in for you custom

How loud (inside and out) would it be if you put a muffler a couple feet behind the cat and called it a day? Right around the console area... I see it on the v8s all the time but not too often on a 4.

There is already a muffler located above the rear subframe. There is also the lunchbox muffler right behind the bumper. People have cut out the lunchbox and it sounds alright. Thats basically what makes the ST exhaust "sporty." It just lacks the lunchbox muffler and keeps the main one.

You wouldn't see much gains by deleting it though at all. Just a better sound. And adding another muffler in front of the main one right behind the cat would only make it quieter. Your better off saving your money and going with a full system like the ones stated above.

Oh wait are you meaning just ending it at that muffler? lol I dunno. I would imagine it would be pretty loud and obnoxious having the sound dump out right under the car. Pretty loud and droning at highway speeds. Probably not too healthy either in stop and go traffic sucking all that exhaust in from under the car.

Yea just an idea. That be more unique than just a bolt on exhaust if you are wanting something different. Maybe do a side exit that isnt too visible unless you get low to avoid the exhaust in the car. Maybe just me but I dont like the same everyone else.
