ok guys i'm planning to buy an exhaust this week but i'm contemplating on which route to take. After jacking up the car and looking underneath and see how the whole exhaust system is made, I've come to the conclusion that I'm going to just do the axle back. My question is...
Would it be better to just buy an axle back system such as hks, apex, etc? Or just buy the apex n/a muffler, mandrel bends, and diy?
I know people will say that brand name is better because you pay for the brand and the time they took to develop the product. It seems very expensive for just an axle back system when I look at the prices.
Will I have significant loss of power if I just diy over buying an axle back from one of the companies or will I just lose minute power? I like the diy because it gives me a fun project to do and i can choose to angle the exhaust the way I want it. And it's way cheaper
The companies axle back come with that resonator right at the axle part and doing a diy will eliminate that and just go pipe to muffler. By doing this i'll lose some back pressure, but do I look to hurt the overall performance more than what a companies axle back will do?
