hey thanks!! i wasn't sure what to put on mine... I went by a local muffler shop and this guy told me that I'd be really happy with an original 40, and I've been really pleased. I was afraid it would sound ricey after I got it installed - so the guy kept my original muffler and told me if I didn't like it come back in a week and let him know.

I went back a couple days later and told him - toss the OEM muffler I loved this thing....

yea, you wanna leave the cat on with these N/A cars, they dont have turbos to provide back pressure. you will lose power

Backpressure is the enemy. What causes loss of torque is the fact that the exhaust is moving too slow with a poorly designed system.

umm yea thats almost complete BS.

your right because logically you free up any air flow restrictions...

however, without proper tuning (ie advancing timing) you will lose power. the stock ecu wont have appropriate fuel and timing maps for that amount of air flow.

but hey you should know that seeing as you have a fuel map as your avatar

I would know, I do know. I get paid to use this knowledge.

And its a timing map, not a fuel map.

Let's see what cobbtuning has to say:

Exhaust Design, Turbo and Naturally Aspirated
by Josh Tenny

Exhaust design is one of the areas of most confusion and can be one of the areas of greatest gain if done properly. There are many factors to consider when designing an exhaust system. Complicating things is the fact that what works perfect for one application may not be even remotely close to optimal for another. Making it even harder to choose the proper exhaust components is the fact that different "tuners" say different things. I have heard so much info myself it is hard to sort through and determine what is marketing and what is correct and truly useful and information. But keep in mind that perception and marketing do play a roll when looking at it from a company's point of view. What good is any product if it does not have enough value for people to buy, or if they do not understand its true advantages. We want to offer a technically superior product and letting our marketing explain why.

One thing I do want to explain before I get too far into this is backpressure. I hear "You need backpressure to make torque." all the time. And it even comes from "tuners" as well as customers. This is flat out not true. Before I arrived into the company of true tuners I fell into the same trap myself. The reality is that backpressure is the enemy. You want to keep it as low as possible. What you do want is to keep velocity up. However doing the things that keep velocity high involves slightly more backpressure under some conditions. You want to keep the gasses moving as quickly as possible to make both good torque and top end power. The perfect exhaust system would keep the gasses moving as fast as they did coming out of the cylinder and have zero backpressure. However this is impossible to achieve in the real world.
