Default exhaust for sx4 crossover

Does anyone make a cat back exhaust system for the crossover? The stock is too quiet and there would be a good power gain.

I have myself been looking and no one makes them they havt to be made custom. Most exhaust shop can do it but it cost more as they have to design the system from scratch as their is not a direct replacement. i got mine done it cost bout $460 for cat back high flow 2.5 inch custom made. it adds bout 15-20% extra power. another good mod is a k&n filter that adds bout 10-15% power. currently mine is at 175hp or 130 kw, with these mods done at a performance shop

hope this helps you

sorry but id like to call BS on 175bhp out of a exhaust and K&N intake.... on a car that starts at 143 at the crank. you do realize that the car only puts down between 90-100 bhp at the wheels right? and theres no way to go from 143 to 175 at the crank from just an exhaust, and filter. id like to see some proof, such as a before and after dyno chart.

but back to the original post... it would be best to get an exhaust setup done at a local muffler shop. most places can give you a good setup, for a relatively good price. there are quite a few people on sx4club.com that have gotten an exhaust done for roughly $150-$230.

the mods done on my car to get that power gain that i did not mention were hi flow header and a programable ecu, with with the prior mentioned gave me such a power gain. the power is the minimum the shop informed me when it was completed.

i will soon be running it 1/4 mile and am hoping for at least low 15s but would like 14s

best of luck with that. dont always trust what the shop tells you, they are just trying to sell parts.

Where did you purchase your header? I know of two available and am planning to purchase one this month. Thanks for your quick reply

i got my headers and exhaust custom made because no one supplys them in my area. road race motorsports have the best one on the market. watch with headers as the check engine light will come on unless a bypass is installed.
