yeah i was thnking about kevins exhaust but i would much rather be paying $170 for an exhaust rather than $380 for something thats going to be only a little different.

You have to understand what you are getting here:

$170 will simply buy you a muffler and a crush bend tailpipe, possbily pay for install as well. This will hardly make a difference in performance, which is what you are going for correct?

$370 will buy you a FULL cat and back exhaust system, including a high flow Catalytic Converter, intermidiate pipe, muffler and MANDREL bend tail pipe. Plus for a few bones more you could go with a new header and y-pipe, giving you the most performance potential from a stock head and cammed motor.

If you want to make noise, then spend $170, but if you genuinely want better performance, lay down $370.

Horsepower ain't cheap.

thanks for the input, im probably going to be bitting the bullet and going with kevins. i just send keven an email asking him which flowmasters muffler it came with and also about how many more horses will it put out.

If I'm not mistaken, the Rusty's exhaust is just the muffler and tailpipe.

a regular bender, makes wrinkles when it bends the pipe, reducing the diameter and smoothness of the bend and hurting the flow.
A mandrel bender keeps a consistent diameter with a smooth bend throughout. Much better for flow.
i dont know of any after-market exhaust company that sells anything "crush-bent."
