I am looking to install a straight through pipe replacing the rear muffler of my car, i dont want to spend too much as im looking to buy a new car, but untill then i want a bit more sound, it costs me $100, what do you think it can do for me, whats the sound like, is there anything else i can do for the same sort of price?

All installed in about 20 mins I love it sounds unreal and feels like a bit of added power too. Thanks to cromer exhausts.

i find keeping the rear muffler only sounds the best combo on a V6 but thats with using extractors, 2 even out the note more.

cant say if certain branded mufflers makes it sounds any different? im only working off my own set up.

A hot dog is just a bullet shaped resonator. People think by fitting one it makes the exhaust louder, but if you just fit one to the exhaust without removing a muffler, it just makes it quieter.

Yes, perfectly legal. (But if the exhaust is too loud, then the whole exhaust is illegal, not the hotdog.)
