What exhaust can i get for my sedan. It seems everyone only has it for the zx3/5 and not the sedan. I have a '03 ZTS and i want an exhaust but i can't find one. Out of curiosity what are the differences in the exhuast system between the zx3/5 and sedan?[???:)]

Differences are bends in the pipe and length and stuff.

You could probably go to a muffler shop and just get a custom one made for about the same price.

I would go with the magnaflow which is what I'm about to purchase in the next few days. I know a guy who has it and it sounds great. It's not too loud, but you can definately tell his exhaust is after market. He also said he noticed a big difference in acceleration.

oops, sorry. The magnaflow I was mentioning does only fit the zx3/5. I'm sure someone makes an exhaust for the sedan.

Now that there are a bunch of people who have the different exhausts avail. Does anyone have a wave file of how theirs sounds? I would like to upgrade but am very afraid of the weed-eater on steroids sound.

Just make sure you get a 2.5" piping the motor is a 2.3 half a Mustang motor. you wouldn't put 2.25 inch on a Cobra would you? If they don't make a sedan syatem yet have one made by a shop with the Muffler of your choice.

you wouldn't have a big "a" hole coming out your car....the piping would be under the car...the bigger the piping the better the air flow the better the sound...i used 3" inch on my old camero and it sound great [idea]
