Mind if I ask why you're looking to do axle back as opposed to cat back?

Well trying to stay within budget if I could find a decent price to do a car back I would. Would it be more worth it to do the car back?

Well if you just do the axle back all you're getting is a muffler and an exhaust tip. It'll look pretty and it might sound nice, but you're not really getting an upgrade.

If you go with cat back you can get wider pipes along with the muffler and the tip so you'll actually get some performance enhancement while staying street legal.

All depends on what you're looking to do.

do you mean racingline? I am pretty upset with them right now. Ordered MMI over 3 weeks ago. They said yesterday they finally shipped them. They no response to my emails before, no warning they have to make the part, nothing.

The stillen SS exhaust shouldn't rust.

If you want to stay on budget, get an ebay exhaust, they are cheap and I have heard some good things about them.

If you order anything for these cars on eBay you have to do a ton of research on the product and fitment. A lot of times the listings are incorrect or they have a bogus fitment chart.

This listing is a prime example.

Its an ebay exhaust for 04-08. The listing is only slightly vague but they have a customer service department and they have their return policy clearly stated.

On the flip side when you google them they don't even have a website, just an ebay store. The only way you can contact them is through ebay. They have a phone number listed on google, but when you call it you find out it's disconnected.

That's a whole lot of red flags.

true, should also do research before buying anything on ebay. just suggested it because he said he was on a budget and you can find some deals on there.

I have a deep understanding of being on a budget, but your exhaust isn't necessarily the place to save. You could end up paying a lot more money in the long run.

I would start with autoanything.com and go from there. You can find decently priced products and see reviews on them from verified purchasers. If you see something you like you can go on to google it and see what people on forums are saying about it before making a decision.
