Exhaust question

I have a. 2011 with a CAI, and I'm getting MPT 93 tune and 4.10 gears.
I'm really not looking to pay a lot for exhaust I just want power. Even if it's quiet... Any thoughts? Or anyone in a similar situation? Thanks!

Too my understanding a axle back exhaust won't give any gains just a sound difference, a Cat-back will give some, but your best bet will be a full exhaust which is gonna cost money.

Short Tube headers will give you low to mid range power without touching the rest of the exhaust.

I just ordered the Dynomax 39507 catback from Amazon for around 328 shipped, it's the best bang for your buck as far as catbacks go. I bought the last one they had though, so it may be awhile before they're back in stock :P

What about just taking the mufflers off and putting something like the thrush glasspack tubes? I have a great local muffler shop that can install them cheap

If that is the route you want to go. Its all up to you cause exhaust is mainly personal preference, I mean you are gone have to live with the sound every time you drive the car so go with what you like otherwise you'll be in for a headache and a lighter wallet.

Thank you, I recently put on a BBK TB, I was told the car sounds a bit different. That video was when the headers were still in the break-in period, it became a lot tamer and now with the TB it is supposedly deeper.

I'd recomend some electronic controled adjustable cut outs.....You can then choose the sound level you want any time you want. wide open for the strip, closed for the neighborhood, and anywhere in between for the street.....You can gain some HP installed properly, similar to the Boss 302 design.....best regards Plum

He was not looking to make noise. He was looking to make power. The only guarenteed way to make power with our exhaust is get rid of the cat or get a high flow one. Not dumping exhaust and losing precious torque.
