Hey guys, first of all how easy is it to install a turbo gauge? Second, I want to replace my muffler, and I've seen some pretty cool ones but then I would need to take the stock one off and weld the new one in. Anyone done this? With what results? And I know this is ricey, but has anyone installed those flamethrowers? how do they work? I heard you have to take the cat off, would that be a problem? Thanks!

*pics are at the bottom!

There are several people here who have replaced only the muffler and left the rest of the exhaust stock. Can't remember who right now. Search for "magnaflow" and see what pops up.

If you get just a muffler, do you have to weld anything? Isn't there a coupling just before the muffer?

Well, jus came back from the auto shop, and we decided to re-do everything from the briefcase thing towards the back. We went with a straight through muffler, and a double tip. Now, she purrs like a kitten.

We had to get about one inch off of the valence, put the tips fill that up nicely. I used a brazillian muffler called Wiest. and one of their tips too. The model of the muffler is Turbo, which just means it's like a straight pipe almost

How much did it cost? I want a similar set-up where the exhaust sits up inside the valence slightly ( I think it looks better that way) and I also only would like to replace the muffler if it's possible.

Well, I'm not in the states, but I got everything done for about U$ 100. Want me to go outside and take some pics?
