So I thought I'd start an exhaust clip thread so everyone can get an idea of what they what kind of exhaust to look for.

If you submit your own video, please provide some info about your car and your mod.


2007 Pontiac G5
2.2L
5 Speed Manual Transmission
2.25" custom piping with 14" magnaflow muffler w/ 2.25" inlet and offset outlet and 3" Magnaflow tip


The link is new, so you might have to click the lil link below the square to see the video till its in the system

Gotta love my newb video skills. I'll try to make some better ones later.

$200
I do feel a difference with the bigger pipe. I'm not sure how much power I gained, but acceleration is alot smoother.

i thought the first half of the exhaust is 2.5" and it stepped down to 2.25" stock. isnt that why aftermarket cat-backs are 2.5" to match the first half and eleminate the step down in pipe diameter?

maybe im wrong

I think the GT models are like that. The guy at the muffler shop said the piping on my car was 1.75"

Sounds pretty nice. Doesn't sound as raspy as everybody was saying the long tube header would make it sound...

BTW, I had somebody revv up my car, so I can hear it from the outside. Shit, its fuggin loud... lol

I need to make another clip since its broke in a bit.
