    I am having a tough time deciding between getting a custom exhaust for my car or buying a Greddy system. Which is better??...does it really matter? Please help me out!

    Thanks,
    Joe

    well, i will say if u know what u want and what to do go with custom... i Have a complete custom 2 1/2 inch stainless steel mandrel bent exhaust that i did myself on my car. Currently i am running my stock cat, with a vibrant 18 inch stanless resonator, and an aftermarket knockoff muffler. I love my exhaust and prob wouldnt trade it for any aftermarket system but then again it is a little more than your average "custom" job. Otherwise than if u cant craft somehting like i have....i would buy an aftermarket system.

    I'd vote for a custom mandrel-bent exhaust, IF you know of a reputable show to have it done at. I'd agree with the guys who bad experiences with custom stuff, because the shops that did them were probably ghetto. I had my custom exhaust done at a good shop here in town, and not only was it inexpensive ($225), it looked stock, sounded great, and didn't make me spend 2x or more on a useless expensive unit.
