  • Loud pipes don’t save lives, don’t repeat that non-sense. If anything loud motorcycle pipes can surprise people and contribute to them making mistakes. I’m not saying don’t get a loud car but be honest about it.

  • I have a problem. Manufacturers don't post decibel levels of their exhausts. And with my 500 Abarth, I don't want to make the exhaust sound louder or too different from stock! Fiat got the sound right from the start! I just want to allow the car to breathe out more freely once it's time to replace the old exhaust.

  • question folks. so i have a 2012 mustang v6 that i got specifically for drag racing, so i dont care about what it sounds like or how loud it is, is it best for me to run open headers then? ive read online that its bad cuz you lose your backpressure but since im drag racing specifically it wont matter right? just run open headers?

    wheelz674wheelz674Mese fa
  • Adding an intake and exhaust can actually hurt performance. Your cares going to regulate it to the factory tune. Car sucks in more than it's tuned for? Hesitation as your ecu compensates to make it what it should be. Basically: without a tune you aren't making more power it just changes the sound.

  • Yesterday I bought an 06 Cobalt SS/SC. It has a nice list of mods including ZZP long tube headers and downpipe, DC sports CAI, zzp oil breather cap and a mishimoto oil catch can. But the exhaust system from the downpipe back?? Completely factory, and is the biggest restriction in the system 🤦 looking into buying a catback for it. I am stuck between the Tsudo kit for $320 or the ZZP kit for $500. As tempting as the Tsudo setup is im probably gonna end up saving up for the ZZP kit, then everything exhaust related will match.
