okay so I want to upgrade my exhaust with my next paycheck if I have enough. My questions are: what do I need to get besides the exhaust? Flex pipe? Tips? I want to get a 2.5" trubendz with borla muffler from Trubendz.com. Aluminized steel or stainless, which wont rust? Thanks for any advice

U want the Stainless Steal and you will also want to get the matching size flex pipe also in stainless.

true, but you are still bottlenecking ur exhuast, so you won't see the full gains of the exhuast till ur flex is changed as well.

i just installed the trubendz borla 2.5" on my ride. it really sounds good! its got a low pitch to it, not ricey at all. this is what i did:

first, i put the cat-back on. i didnt put the flexpipe on yet b/c i ordered the svt header and in my case i went with the svt flex b/c i found a good deal on a svt cat. so, i had to wait to put the flex on b/c it wouldnt fit with my stock header/cat.

if you do put a flex on with your catback, i would make sure that it will bolt up to the header/cat you plan to get. you dont want to have to buy another flexpipe so you can put your header on.

Thanks for all the help guys! So I could get the exhaust and install it then get the flexpipe at a later time? I would get the flex with it but the xmas money that i was suppose to get from my rents got put on hold due to credit card theft [scream]. Would it affect the sound a lot?

ya, you can do it after you upgrade the exhaust, its no problem, you may get a deeper sound w/ the flex, but it won't make too much of a difference.

you'll be fine..... i drove around with just the borla on for almost half a year, it was fine... but when u do decide to upgrade the flex.... and header, you'll feel the different then.
