get a exhaust or no?
 
i am planning on getting a agency power exhaust. but not quite sure yet if i want to pull the trigger yet. any one regret an exhaust? think i would get annoyed of it? can you feel the power? yes exhaust or no exhaust?

I say listen to some videos and go to some local meets and try to find someone that has the exact exhaust your looking for to get a feel of what you want.

It all comes down to personal preference in the end, no one can tell you what you will like or not.

Will your Bimmer be louder in the cabin...yes, but in most cases it will be totally acceptable.
I really like the way my Magnaflow catback exhaust sounds.

HP, if you install headers with your full exhaust, you will pick up usable WHP that you
can feel.

Good luck,

unless u have a very low tolerance for exhaust sound, you will be fine. I did a resonator delete with a performance muffler, and its still very quiet. my brothers stock 350z is louder.

by all means DON'T pay an absurd amount for some cookie cutter exhaust. your just paying for a name! get a y pipe 2.5 to 3.0 and do 3 inch pipe all the way back. everyone knows the best muffler is no muffler! hp > rest :thumbsup: if you want a super sleeper set up design the same exhaust i just explained have your welder/fabricator add an electrical cut out for LESS then the over priced named garb your gonna get. Then you can have a "loud" switch! then again it's just an idea hit up jegs.com for cheap exhaust parts/items.

I found that the least expensive way to get more tone from your car is to do a muffler delete. There are many threads of opinions on this topic. Unless you have a turbocharged/supercharged engine, the power gain will be almost non-existant. Just my HO. Chas

so i put in my exhaust and holy crap is it loud....... any thing to tone it down a notch? thinking about welding resinators on there
