    go to your local muffler shop and get one bent there... and then get an aftermarket catback muffler .... should be around 150 or so... maybe less...

    dude, you're contradicting yourself. :blink: if you get an aftermarket cat-back system you won't need to go to a muffler shop. you know what i mean?

    jeffg989, just get yourself a descent cat-back exhaust system. here's my view on some popular exhausts.
    Tanabe = i personally love how the Tanabe's sound, especially the racing medallion, nice performance.
    Greddy = i think they are too loud, over-priced, and under-performing.
    Apex-i = loud as hell, they sound a little ricey but they are pretty good on the performance.

    thx for the help, but also, my car is bone stock dx right now :( the reason i'm askin about the exhausts is cause my current muffler has a hugs ass hole in it and needs to be replaced but i figured i would just put the aftermarket exhaust on now cause i'm gonna do a b-series swap when i get the money (hopefully by the end of the summer) so putting the aftermarket on now i would save money in the long run, but should i do this, or just get a new stock muffler?

    if you're getting ready to do a swap then you should wait on the exhaust purchase because it probably won't bolt up to your new header correctly and you'll end up going to a muffler shop to get it cut and extended/shortened. i say get the exhaust after you do the swap.

    i agree with what he said ^. my exhaust went after about a week after i bought my car and i ended up buying a 5zigen fireball catback for it and i wish now that i had put money into a swap first.

    you buy a catback system for the car, not the engine, so wahtever swap you will do will most likely bolt up to the exhaust system on the car.
    my b series swap into my del sol , i used the same exhaust system
