Most people go with a full cat-back system. You would free up a lot more hp by adding larger diameter tubing than if you were to just install different mufflers.

Go with Racingline cats, ypipe and do an ebay catback. If you want to spend the money then go for some dual tip magnaflows. Best exhaust set up by far.

I replaced my factory mufflers with Flowmaster's years ago and I've been enjoying it ever since but I'm now looking into getting a catback system (looking for more HP). I just don't know if I can trust something like that from Ebay though.

The Ebay Catback I got is amazing. the material is very good quality. 2.5 inch piping with magnaflow mufflers welded on.

youre not going to get much HP by switching your exhaust to catback right now.

Why not invest in intake manifold or headers since you already have an exhaust

hi e1 ,im new to the forum. my name is kyle. I am really having some issues since I put my headers on. this is probably a no brainer but I bought headers for a Nissan Altima .so it didn't come with bung for egr ,I heard cutting pipe at header and flattening it would be ok but might throw codes.well it did ,im not sure what to do about it .im not looking forward to taking that back header back off also since this job I have power to the car but not even a click from starter or cylanoid. I can pop start it and away it goes .I just need to know if I hurt anything

There are a few mufflers that have the dual tips, Just don't like the sound of them. The ones you are running sound great. Equal to if not better than the Greddy...IMO of course.

How are you going to go about burnt tips?

I think the one thing Beluga has over GReddy is that Beluga has a slightly larger outer diameter piping. Other than that they both user free-flow mufflers, so you'll get better performance out of them over your conventional chambered muffler.

As far as the tips go, I'm kipping the mufflers I have now and will have the new tips welded on. I haven't settled on anything yet since I'm working on another project, but perhaps something like this:

All you have is the catback? No headers, or y pipe? Sounds sooo good.
