Mkay, so I have a 96' Cavalier, 2.2 liter, 5 speed manual transmission, and
I want to have a good exhaust.
I don't want some fart can exhaust, and I don't even care about sound, I just want a good exhaust. What are your suggestions on this?
mind my ignorance, i'm not smart with cars...:doh:
If you dont want a fart cannon, and you're not too bothered about sound, why do you want a replcement? as it'll only slightly, if at all, improve performance.....is your current item corroded or blowing or damaged in any way? lol
Well, it is kind of rusty, no clue how it got rusty, but I was looking for
just a little extra boost, without the farting noise...
I'm fixing up the car and I want it to look nice and be a little better than stock.
Exhaust systems get rusty, regardless, as they're exposed to all the elements (rain, snow, salt etc.....all nasty rust causers lol). I doubt very much you'll notice any 'boost' at all though......I'll let somebody else ofer the available choices tough, as boy racer parts aren't really my forte lol
oh, is there such things as good mufflers, without them having to be related to racing?
Erm, there are tamer versions, that look less racy. Stainless steel will obviously last longer, which aftermarket mufflers are made from (obviously for longevity....so it remains in it's 'shiny' state for as long as possible!)
good enough, anything is better than stock...
I just thought of something, couldn't I just buy a sports muffler and just like, put a silencer on it? Or would that not help any?
how about something like a camshaft?, it shouldnt make your car any louder(maybe nicer) and you'll feel much more of a boost than a muffler:2cents:
Borla won't rust, though I don't know if they make one for your car, go find out at borla.com
Yeah, Borla doesn't have any for my car, Im thinkin of goin with the
i'll just buy a silencer for it if it's too loud for me, or something.
well on my cavalier z24 I got 2.5" piping and a high flow cat, and if your anygood with a welder you can just add the larger piping and the high flow cat and weld the bracket on the end from the stock exhaust, and bolt it to the stock exhaust, more performance with minimal sound differance, it's what I did on my girl friends z24 and it made a 21 hp differance i was surprised
Sure it did. Everyone wold be surprised at that number. I'm surprised you'd think that anyone was stupid enough to believe you. :roll:
Another one of those people who truly think that an exhaust wider in diameter makes their car 'faster'...
I have a twin-loop exhaust on my '95 Civic. Sounds great and seems to add a little power. Has a beautiful brassy sound. Mugen makes the best twin-loop muffler I'm told. Not too loud and not a farter.
do u mind spending money if not go to sts turbo i have one on my cavi but its the universal kit so i dont know if u have good knolege but i love it its bad ass i have a 98 cavi:smoke:
ive never heard like more than a few horse power from exhaust . . . if i
can get 21 count me in i have a cobalt (basically a cavy) but i dont
think i can :)
