Get How do I get that expensive EXHAUST sound without the premium price?
 
I installed my Technik Gen 3 headers today, and they sound SIIIICK.

Next thing I want tho is a crazy amazing exhaust system to match. right now im running the stock ZHP exhaust, but I want something with more muscle. ;)

dislaimer: not gonna straight pipe it.... just too loud for my taste...

I wanna fashion something that sounds similar to this, without spending $1100

try a resonator delete??? only like 90 bucks and you can get decent sound. if not you only wasted 90 bucks instead of several hundred

i would try the muffler delete. If you do not like it, just buy a different muffler no real loss. It will be way loud though with aftermarket headers

Isn't that the magnaflow exhaust in that video? If that group buy is still active you can get the magnaflow catback exhaust for wayyyyy cheaper than $1100. Not sure if the group buy is still active though. That's what I have and it sounds amazing.

yeah, i know it sounds pretty amazing. I just have a few different goals in mind. I'm wondering what the best setup for maximum airflow with a supercharger would be (possibly Y-pipe into a 3.5) or whatnot. and if i can just figure out some kind of aftermarket muffler and save myself some money... etc, have a loud car, fast car, and stay legal. all 4 of those goals

1.) best airflow for supercharger
2.) Loud car
3.) Legally loud car (dont wanna get a noise ticket)
4.) something that sounds mature
5.) Saves money

thats the thing, these technik gen 3 headers are WAYYYYYY louder than the stock ones.... so a muffler delete would sound disgusting I think...

I have the Magnaflow/Technik setup, it rocks!

I also heard the Rogue Ikon and Active Autowerke Exhausts sound good.
