Talking Just ordered 5-Zigen springs...what exhaust should I get???

I just bought my 2001 R.S. and I just ordered some 5-Zigen springs...and want to order an exhaust. I just don't know what's the best for my setup. Many mods comming in the next couple of months...any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Here's some assistance. I will assist you in the "search" feature. Move your mouse to the upper portion of the screen and click on that word. Type in "exhaust" and you'll find thousands of messages about exhaust.

Any exhaust you'll be happy with. The common choices are Stromung, Borla, 5Zigen. I chose Flowmaster™. It was not a kit. The local muffler shop fabricated the piping with a resonator inline and a 60 series muffler for imports. The exhaust is deep and mellow sounding...NOT LOUD really.

Performance gains are nill to marginal, so don't be really worried about which exhaust you get, becuase they are all going to sound about the same. Same motor, different exhaust choices.


*now start searching!!!*

Ok, Here you go. I know this guy who will sell generic universal muffler. Anyways I didn't have much money and I went ahead and bought one. It looks like an Apexi with like a 3.5in tip. I was kind of weary about it being fake but then when I got it on noone even noticed it was fake. They also said that it has the best sound that they had ever heard. Just an idea. Got it at Turbo Mufflers . Anyways see if there are any you like. It doesn't hurt to look if your low in the bank. I got a pretty good HP jump. It was real noticable.

I purchased my exhaust directly form Scott @ Stromung. I really enjoy the melodious growl of the exhaust. The exhaust looks great and sounds even better. Give them a try. www.stromung.com

I bought my Stromung from autocaresubaru.com in a groupbuy. I reccommend the stainless steel dual tip and I think Larry Ganz is now selling them at imprezars.com
