HKS OWNS ALL!!

to answer your question, there is nothing wrong with going custom as long as you use quality material and it's mandrel bent.

it's much easier though to just buy one made for the car.

oh yeah,

I would recommend getting a stainless steel exhaust system.

07 owner looking for exhaust

Looking for an exhaust for my 2.3 07 sedan. I live in AZ so the emissions testing is fairly rigerous. Curious as to where I could find a reasonably priced exhaust (nothing to fancy, just a little more power, nicer sound). Also something that doesnt screw around with the cat converters as much. Just a basic exhaust upgrade from the stock. Anyone have any good suggestions?
