Default Cat-backs...muffler choices

What kind of mufflers do you guys like? or do you want an in-line type muffler and just a tip coming out.

Personally what I'm doing, is I couldn't find any muffler tips that were perfect so I'm putting an inline one in, then putting a 3" super polished pipe on the end, then flame treating to to have a purple color to it. But all you'll really see is a pipe coming through a hole in the bumper, and sitting flush with my rear bumper.

Also would you guys like the cat-backs muffler/tip to sit just below the bumper, or would you like to have to cut out some of the bumper to have it fit cleaner?

I like the "sit just below the bumper" idea...
As far as the muffler goes it's not a big deal too me, an in-line sounds good.

id rather not cut the bumper. now what exactly do you mean by inline muffler? something like sidepipes? or purple hornies i think there called? where its just a straight pipe with packing in it? if so will the packing be replacible like with some side pipes? or just a regular performance type mufler like the dynomax or whatever some people are running with?

im sure he means a resonator with some piping and then a tip...the muffler wont be at the very rear of the exhaust system. usually the packing isn't replaceable. you usually have to cut out the old and weld in new...or you could probably get some flanges so you can change them out yourself pretty easily.

i cut my bumper just a little bit, but it made one hell of a difference as far as looks. it looks more like it came with the car...it could go a little bit higher, but i wasn't there when the shop decided how much they bent the last pipe. oh well, it still looks/sounds good

No, basicly a resonator.

CAT-back prototype will be done next week.

Sorry guys but you're going to have to cut into your bumper, unless you get creative with the exhaust hangers. Granted my cars lowered more than most of you, but if I put the muffler on without cutting the bumper than it would have been ripped off within a week easy and my rear bumper bottoms out less with the extra 3" drop over lowering springs cuz it's so much stiffer. So for you guys with lowering springs, if you don't cut your bumper to raise the muffler you'll probably end up with a crush bent muffler...custom done by the road itself. Also having the muffler below the bumper looked really out off place. The only other option we had would have been to just have a turn down muffler and you wouldn't see any of the exhaust from outside the car, which I think most people wouldn't like.

btw we're most likely going to be using some megnaflow canister style muffler with 2.25" in and 4" out. There weren't many other choices, and this is the basic style muffler for a cannon one, not to mention magnaflow is amazing for performance and quality.

Also I don't think it'd be that hard to do custom cat-backs, where you chose the muffler, it would be extra but if you really hated our style muffler then it might be worth it

I think a short oval shaped can would solve some people's lowering issues. A compact version of the old Greddy SP1 can would look really nice. Shiny polished rear of the can makes for some nice bling for the people behind you.

Seriously though, guys, take a look at the rear of your car. No room. Cut your bumper, deal with it, be happier.
