On the GA16 powered 91-94 if you replace the Cat-back it was like 12 because the pipes were very small. then when you replace the header, that front pipe was super small and restrictive as hell. the Hotshot Gen 2 header replaced that small pipe to the Cat. That made a huge difference in power. If you had the Gen 1 header, you needed to have a shop make you a front pipe from the header to the Cat, as I had to do.according to mike kojima you´ll get 6-7 whp from a good mandrel bent cat back
Dude a good exhaust with a resonator before the muffler will sound awesone, not too loud and definetely NOT like a fart can.i got pacesetter headers and they are great if you know how to weld, not exactly boltandplay operation, i had to weld on all the old fittings off the stock manifold to get the boy to go in smooth, but i gotta say not one leak and sounds amazing even with the rest of the exhuast being stock. reason the rest is stock is becuase i am too scared to bugger off a couple hundred to get that fartcan smell....er sound......does anyone kno the best sounding catback or if you buildin your own what muffler on a 2.5in tube?
I am running an OBX WAI, stock exhaust manifold, and the Pacesetter cat back. It sounds awesome. Very deep and aggressive when I get on it. But at cruising speeds it cant be heard. It was exactly what I was looking for. I had to cut off and reweld a hanger into the correct location. But that is minor. The muffler and tip fit the body perfect.i tried to order one when i was looking for headers, and the customer service sucked balls and they were on back order, basically more trouble than it is worth, to be honest the pacesetter is a 4-2-1 design and besides me being a little anal about the fittings, it was easy to put in, and they still look good, no rust or discoloration.
how much the resonator on the pacesetter catback help the fartcan sound?
sir x loin are you just running the catback? how it sound.
