I've spent the last 3 hours searching for all these topics and i havent quite found all the information im looking for. I have my 02 bugeye that has a lightened flywheel, steering bushings and lowering springs, and am going to get some exhaust around christmas. I am planning on buying it off ebay, but im not sure if i should go for the catback exhaust, or instead get an uppipe and downpipe. I cant afford all three at the moment and either have to take the cbe or the up/down combo. I want to know what everyone thinks if i should go for the better sound or the performance. Also, i plan on getting the Ap eventually, but most likely not for another year or so, so could i run the up/down on my car w/o the Ap and be fine? What would the up/down sound like w/ the stock muffler? Do people typically do this?
And my last question is how much should i spend on an uppie or downpipe on ebay. Ive seen uppipes on ebay for 25 but i wouldnt feel comfortable buyin one that cheap, are the cheap-os in the 40-60 range good or reliable? SAme question for the downpipe.
thanks a lot this will be a big help
