Has anyone installed a performance muffler or exhaust system on their forte? I'm looking to make my car louder and am looking around for some parts. I was wondering if anyone could give me any ideas of what to get or tell me what you have on? sound clips and videos would be helpful!

I just installed a cherry bomb extreme muffler tuesday. Lol. I'm making a vid on friday with my buds from another site! :) It only cost me a 100 bucks with installation and parts. I love having connections.

Yeah my muffler is definitely loud! Its not annoying, its a real "old school sound" like a member Red Rocket says. :) Its not civic-esque at all.

i went with magnaflow. the product number is 12865. its listed i believe for 150 on their site but ebay has it for 85! plus 55 to instal at my local muffler shop. i installed it maybe 2 weeks ago and i must say it does sound real good. i totally fell in love with it. its not extremely loud by any means and it doesnt drone out the inside of the car so you cant hear anything but when you gas it, it makes a nice growl. add that with a CAI and its like listening to angels sing haha at idle it has a nice low purrr to it and i love it. i'll make a video but more than not, the videos really dont do it much justice. another member on the forum bought the same one before me and i decided to go with it. happy hunting tho

oh p.s. im not sure where your at but the place on ebay that i got mine from was free shipping AND it got to me in 4 days. total crazyness haha there's a link.
