Straight pipe vs all new exhaust kit

Obviously straight piping it would be cheaper but I'm trying to decide between that and a new kit. I've been looking at flowmaster and I like it but it's so expensive and a lot of work.

Oh I have a 2002 v6. Opinions?

Everything Exhaust & Clips

honestly it's all personal preference...i've had flow master 40s, straight pipes, thrush welds, some knock off super 40s, and borlas...and they all had their pros and cons. get whatever sounds good to you since you have to drive it daily.

Which one did you like best? And was it really difficult when it came to smogging it when you had it straight piped?

personally i love my stingers over anything i've had so far but i like a sporty tone...whereas you may like the deeper rumble some do. as for smog you won't have any issues if your cats are still there

Well yeah but they won't be if I straight pipe it :p I just don't want it to be a huge hassle to put them back on when I need to smog it or if there's anything else I could do to get it to pass

straight piping refers to being without mufflers....taking off the cats would make it off road. as for emission time you can either put them on or weld up shields and kill the code with a tune

cause it's not "road legal" it's a term companies use to waive the legal issues "off road" basically means track and show use only. You have to tow the car to the track or show basically. Buuuutttttt yeaaaahhhhhhhh.... Hahah my smoked headlights have a sticker that say, "for off road or show use only"
