    I had an egay system on my last EG. couldn't fault it really. Only bit I wasnt totally happy with was the sound. It was a bit boomy on low revs,but sounded much better over 5.5k,but this could have been down to the 4-1 mani and decat.

    to be honest, i'm probably goin to get powned by the haters now, but a catback exhaust is a pipe.


    thats all a pipe...


    if a buddy club cat back is 2.25 from cat to back box


    and an ebay cat back is 2.25 from cat to back box


    they will both fflow exactly the same.


    also all this bull that stainless flows better is utter ass, the only advantages of stainless are that it looks better and doesnt rust, but then again it takes a loooong time for normal exhausts to rust anyway...


    so that said, if your OEM cat-back box pipe is okay, keep it on there, save your self some money, and then buy a good back box (the back box is where the science is, skunk2 mega powers are good) only thing i will say is don't get a huge back box as you do need some back pressure, or you'll have shite low end torque.


    best thing you can do is buy a nice 4-2-1 (everyone says they have no faults wiyth ebay ones) a decat pipe and a good back box, you can go ebay with the back box, but id recommend, if your going cheap to buy a brand-copy.


    hope that helps buddy :Smile:
