new exhaust, is it worth it.

today i went to an exhaust place to get my exhaust checked coz it's been making a weird noise latey when i exelerate. Turns out my cadi converter is rusted to the shit house, i have three or four holes thoughout the length of the exhaust and muffler.

the employie told me that i could get it replaced with an australian made sports exhaust (can't remember the brand) for $300. and if i wanted to i could get the howl thing done with pacemaker extractors for $730 with a two year warrenty.

plus he recons it will give my ea 15kw extra power, better fuel consumption and make it sound a howl lot better. are all these facts true, and is it worth it?

Re: new exhaust, is it worth it.

generally an exhaust will give all of what he said, 15kw can be a little over the top at times, it will deffinately sound 'meaner', should give better fuel economy and give a little more power, i'm yet to fit a better exhaust to my car but it will happen some time
shop around for some prices at other places and see how u go.

Re: new exhaust, is it worth it.

The noise factor from an exhaust contributes greatly to the psychological speed/performance of a car.

Re: new exhaust, is it worth it.

if youre looking for any sort of performance gain, get extractors. a cat back is going to get you next to stuff all.
