port and polish 1st?

i went to a local mod shop and I asked them how much they could get a TRD exhaust for and he said 500 and i said ok but then he said well you shouldnt even really bother b/c all it is is noise, if ur gonna spend that much on an exhaust ur better off getting a port and polish, so i'm not sure what to do, how much are port and poliches usualy range from? frown

I would go for the port and Polish. But thats just me. After seeing the gains from an exhaust system, I bet you could get more out of a P&P. But the thing with a P&P job, they have to take the motor apart, so if you want to do other internal work, now is the right time. I nebver got the P&P cause I want to do everything at the same time, I'm weird like that. If you could save up and get both (P&P and exhaust) at the same time, because you will probably get better results with the exhaust after the P&P. Hope that helps you out. Just make sure you go to a reputable machine shop for that kind of work.

We do not have a REAL catback exhaust system...well, they do not sell one anyways (unless its Kazuma). If you want a true catback exhaust, buy whatever exhaust you want...which will consist of the muffler. Then go to a muffler shop and get a Hi-Flo cat with a custom midpipe and eliminate the resonator.
