I run with a BB Fusion only because I have neighbors that could put me behind bars. When I am out of the neighborhood then are open...........until I return. Then I close them down.
I want a low muscle car sound but I want to be able to talk to my wife when we are riding together. But I do want the performance too. I also want my set up to be able to be tuned to pass our yearly emissions test here.

Is there something out there that will fill that bill....

I use LG longtubes with Corsa mufflers and it know it meets all the criteria except the emissions, we don't have to test out here, yet.

You may need to talk to LG Motorsports to make sure their system will pass

I have LG long tube headers and a B&B Fusion exhaust. The mild to wild switch is good a keeping the peace with my wife, especially when on a longer trip on the highway.

Thanks to every one who mentioned the B&B Fusion exhaust. I did some research and altho this system is awesome, it is also above my pay grade. It is about twice as much as I am able to afford on the muffler side.

I recon on spending $1200 - $1400 on the long tube headers, free flowing cats, and possibly a double X-pipe ( one before and one after the cats), all in the 2 and 7\8 or 3" size. Then $650 to $750 on the muffler side.

Installed myself!

Thanks tho!

B&B bullets. Budgets require 2 outlet( cosmetic is 4 tips black powder coat). 1.75" headers and hi flow cats and x pipe.

Bullets are $779 long tubes are $999 at southerncarparts.com. And the rest can be made or done at a REAL muffler shop for $300 dollars and 1 day labor ( $220).total $2500 with taxes. Your car will be like a new animal, UNBEILVEABLE. Ask around at your local race track. Some people will do it for trade ( their reputation and a good deal or a way to get away from their wife and get drunk in a garage.).
