exhaust wise you can straight pipe but be sure (cali sucks) to keep the cat on, or else arnold will be jamming his "go green" finger up your butthole, tighten up the throttle cord with zipties is a quick way to add response and maybe some speed but be careful when messing with exhaust, dont do something to get yall in trouble and dont relieve all the back pressure, back pressure direct correlates to torque

yea, thrush is the best in terms of price vs. reward. however, i would suggest cat back systems from the big names, magnaflow, flowmaster etc orrrrr go to cherry bombs cite and inspect the different types available, they make many add-ons that arent ricers or useless piece of hollow metal, there are some real solid editions, like the pro series or extreme if you wanna put a Y pipe in idk, there are tons of ways to go about retaining back pressure and adding an aggresive sound

GOOD NEWS! narrowed it down to three options!

After youtubing for an hour....

Cherrybomb Glasspack...

Flowmaster 40

or Thrush Turbo...

Now, anybody know the in and out muffler diameter size for a stock exhaust on a 96 3.0L and the length the new glasspack needs to be? would save me a lot of time, otherwise measurements will be taken taken tomorrow!

Thoughts? Advice? Comments? feedback is great!
