So I'm trying to make a game plan on how to attack the exhaust upgrade that is most definitely in my LGT's future. I was originally wanting to go with an Invidia/Nameless combo, but it is damn expensive to do so, so I thought about buying mufflers and having a shop fab up the rest. I have a good, reputable shop that primarily does diesel performance, but they know how to bend piping and weld extremely well. I've seen their work first hand on 3 different vehicles my friends at Precision Detail (local shop) have had done and they all look and sound fantastic. Here's what I'm wanting to do:
23" Vibrant TPV 3" inlet mufflers OR
8-10" 2.75 or 3" straight through in the mid pipe
I found this video, likely it's someone on here and I really like the tone. His setup is 3" to the Y, then 2.5" to 4" tips and a 2.75" x 8" Magnapack in the mid pipe.
I'm thinking that 3" from the turbo back to the mufflers would sound about the same, maybe a little more quiet if I go with the 23" Vibrants. What do you guys think? And yes, I will have an AP before this all happens so I can put an OTS tune on and then hopefully get a protune later.
