    Are you looking for something off the shelf I assume? If you're willing to spend a little bit more then $400, then hit up K-Teller and have them custom build you something. You can do 3" stainless, mandrel-bent with any mufflers and/or resonators that you want...

    it should only be like $200 from a performance shop(you supply the muffler). Name brand exhausts will cost; pretty much any that come in 80mm sizes would work well for you.

    That's up to you. I'd recommend something oval shaped. That should produce a better tone then the N1-style cans...

    Vibrant mufflers come in 3", are oval, and sound pretty nice. Another one is Magnaflow mufflers.

    What are you running for exhaust currently? I'd probably just wait until you get all the parts you want for your final setup before you dyno and tune...

    I must have 3". Well dyno'd yesterday. Only got to high 300's for some reason it's not taking any more than 14lbs. Boost. I really want 18-25lbs. On my set up. Well see what we get today.
