I am looking into the exhaust system of my 1993 nissan sentra 1.6, now that ive got a WAI. The pipe looks soooo small and i imagine could get a few horsies with a bigger pipe, and maybe some muffler work. My questions: First, is there any backpressure behind the muffler? Will anything happen if i take it off(other than loudness), and what about my cat? Whats the best size pipe to get, i was thinkin 2", but not sure. and can i have monroe or some shop bend the pipes? I dont have much money so i dont want a system, theyre too expensive, i dont mind if its alittle loud i just dont whant it annoingly loud. What should i do about the exhaust manifold?

Any suggestions appreciated.

thanks,
silas

check out the groupbuy.....
the have a stromung catback mid pipe i think 2" starting at $170.00

as far as size goes... 2" is fine for a n/a ga16.
also if you are going to have a shop do bends for you make sure they are not crushed bends... you really loose allot..

also i have a 96gxe with no muffler...it runs a little better but nothing proven.

No, never ;)

Actually take you look at both Sentra.net and NissanPerformanceMag.com. Quite a bit has been written about GA16DE exhausts.

mike young did a big write up about exhaust setup, 2 inches is the limit for the GA exhaust, any bigger piping then that will cause you to lose power. You might have your exhaust obnoxiously loud and ricey so i would wait until you can get a decent muffler, jump in on that stromung group buy.

BTW im NOT a Ricer. If i was, i would of gone down to the local ricer shop and bought a coffey can that sounds like a bumble bee a long time ago. Please people i want performance, not looks or sound.
