dont expect much of a power gain from a catback on our cars...maybe 1 more horse and 1 more pound of torque...have the exhaust shop cut off immediately where the main cat ends and put 2.25" piping all the way to ur brand new performance muffler...i highly reccomend a small magnaflow

My .2 cents is that I found a nice gain in performance wise by replacing the stock muffler with one that had a straight through design, and coupled with a cat-delete.
Car runs a lot smoother now without those restrictions. The cat is filled almost full with the honeycomb material.

I don't think I'd pass any emissions or inspections without a cat atleast present. Think I'd get a similar effect with the magnaflow racing cat? I think that's the one that's available, I'd imagine it wouldn't be as good as catless but maybe have a close enough similar effect? That would be something I'd think about doing down the road at sometime if its somewhat similar.

I think you would get close to similar, though I have never seen the inside of a Magnaflow cat...
If you did want to go that route, I have a 25% coupon that was emailed to me. I think it is still good, and I will never use it.

Ok guys so I need help. I bought a $60 cf muffler off ebay, I'm wanting to do a custome exhuast. Bamboost told me I need to get a magnaflow resonators to get a more angry sound. I've been searching for about an hour now and I have acouple questions:
1. I know where the resonator is located under the car, but what is its purpose?
2. What size would I need to buy? 14' 18" or 22"?
3. Is magnaflow the only one that makes on for my GS?

theres a 14" resonator already present...so get an 18".

the purpose is exactly what it sounds like..."resonates sound"....deepens, smooths sound out..

I'm interested in the Injen catback for my GT seeing as how it comes with a high flow cat and doesn't require any chopping of the original piping. However, that 3" diameter has me a little concerned. I have no plans on adding forced induction, is this exhaust too big for NA?

I believe it utilizes stock piping until it gets to the tip, which will be 3 in. If it does not, you need to make sure all of your piping is the same size, other wise, you will get a rasp, or farting sound. The reason is the air going from little to big (or vice versa) flows up, back around, and back down - hitting the air flowing normally to the end of the exhaust - where the size difference is, causing turbulence that can be heard.

GT stock piping diameter is claimed to be 2.388", 3" may be a bit too big for a naturally aspirated V6 engine (2.5" is supposedly ideal). However, this is based on what I've been told and not on hard research, nor do I fully understand flow mechanics and if back pressure is a real issue or not. Worst case scenario, you may actually lose power/response with such a large diameter exhaust.

I upgraded to a 2.25" catback on my 2.2 G5 and it worked very well (GMPP)

Y pipe and cut your rear bumper. It wouldn't be a true dual. It would mainly be for looks.

Not possible. Also stick with a well known name brand. That is an eBay specific brand which could potentially be decent sounding, but will likely end up ricey and raspy as hell.

It looks like a cat delete, resonator delete, and high flow muffler... The pipe diameter stays the same. It would be a lot cheaper just to get that exhaust made for you at a shop. But you may want to go 2.5" or 2.75". 3" if you plan on doing a lot of power mods and don't mind losing the low end

Thanks guys I'm not planing on doing alot of mods. I have a cold air intake and want to make the throttle body a bit bigger and port and polish my intake manifold and getting a AEM tuner that about it. Turbo cost too much and you know what that means new pistons and rods it too much work and costly for me. So all just go with an exhaust that not much bigger then what we have already and I know a guy that make exhaust for a living and I know a guy that I can buy pipe from so I think all just go that rout. It my not look shiny crome like but it will do it job not like people can look under my car to find out lol. Thank again guys.
