custom exhaust

alright, sound aside (dont need anyone whos gonna be complainin about how loud its gonna be or the tickets ima get because i dont really care), if i went with a custom exhaust similar to the kazuma,(no cat, no muffler, just str8 2.5" pipe with a resonator) would i be getting the biggest hp gains? and that should probably be cheaper then buying the kazuma itself correct? how much should i expect to pay? just askin to see if i should even bother goin to the shop for an estimat.

depends on the muffler shop you go to, and the exhaust tip you buy.

definately. parts-cost would be cheaper..but the labor cost is what you need to worry about. better shops cost more, and that could bump the price over than that of the kazuma.

you would most likely save money though (after all, you need to pay to have kazuma installed anyway)...just make sure you get a good job. mandrel bent piping is better..but many shops don't offer that. (mandrel bent = smoother bends = less restriction = less power loss).

what resonator you use will make a difference too!
