Lots of different systems to choose from. Got mine from JC Whitney..good fit, looks good. But loud. There's a site that lets you hear both a single and dual exhaust during idle and passing by. The site is Just go thru the steps for exhaust systems until you see where to download the audio player. Good Luck!

I got the Borla header and Borla cat-back dual exhaust from Race and Street ( The car at least seems noticably faster and it sounds nice but isn't really loud (had a chance to watch a family member drive off in my car today and couldn't hear it after a short distance). I'd recommend it, but if you have or intend to get the Bruizer kit or any other bumper cover type of change, be sure to get the bumper cover work done first, so the exhaust can be properly adjusted.

Hi. Race & Street here. We highly recommend the Bassnai dual exhaust. It has better features, better fit, and a tunable sound for the same cost as the Borla system. Borla is a good name in exhaust, but we sell about 30 Bassani's for every Borla we sell. We have not had a single complaint about the Bassani systems. Some people complain about Borla having rattles and being harder to install. The Bassani's are the way to go! You can go to to check them out.

I will second this, the Bassani exhust has a lot of rave reviews. I bought mine from Race & Street. It is simply to install and looks great. A+ Larry <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_cool.gif border=0 align=middle>

Haqve had my Bassani's in place for at least six months and wouldn't change them for anything!
