i'd rather have an exhaust on my car cuz i love the deep tone the 3sgte gives off with it. But thats too much money for me right now cuz of the holidays.

its just a striaght shot from the midpipe under the axle to the muffler.... you could prob get that done fairly cheap.... i never really liked the slanted to the side muffler mounting b/c i mainly see that on some riced out crap but it looks good on that 165 along with the muffler style.... i personally am waiting to finish my exhaust that just dumps right before the rear crossmember.... i wanted a side exit but ill try making that in the summer...

i am currently working on my under diff exhaust for my 185. i have had 3" back to the axle section where the previous owner stoped the 3" and it had a nice deep tone that i liked alot.
