Question Exhaust Suggestions

Hi Everyone,
I am a newbie to the Forums (Just joined today), I have a 2005 Touring edition 2.4 nonturbo PT and I have been thinking about putting exhaust on it, I do not want dual exhaust and want something that is relatively cheap (under $75) but doesnt sound like a little ricer. My friend suggested a Cherrybomb Turbo but hes a Honda guy and might be steering me down the wrong path and I wanted a few other opinions, I was also looking at getting magnaflow but I am new to this stuff so I dont know what to do. I appreciate your feedback!

- Dusty Paynts

Well, for under $75 you're basically looking at replacing just the muffler. If you're planning to replace the entire exhaust system, expect to pay upwards of $250.

I'm planning to drop in a Cherrybomb shortly. $30 plus installation.. can't beat that.

Well which type of Cherrybomb would do justice to a PT, Glasspack, Turbo or Vortex, I have heard the Glasspack is too obnoxious

One of the fellows at my work said the exhaust in the PTs (mines a 2006 n/a) was all bolt on, and that just replacing the muffler should be very easy. Is this correct?

Before I went with duals I put in a Dyno Max #17732. I thought it sounded pretty good and I offered that news to several owners who also thought it sounded good.

I can only speak for the Dyno Max and it sounds good, not rice and not obnoxious but one persons music is another persons junk. Sound is very subjective.
