</font><hr /></blockquote><font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">NA means normally aspirated or more simply all motor (or no forced induction like turbos or superchargers and no nitrous.)

this system looks pretty cheaply made. most likely a custom job by someone trying to make a little extra dough. it would work, but i wouldn't pay over $250 for it as you can get a professionally made Magnaflow or MBRP system for around $300-330, much better quality for the money. you're not going to see any really large hp gains from any exhaust system alone, maybe 5-6 AT THE MOST.

again, this system looks pretty cheap in the quality department. i'd shop around at places like www.newedgeperformance.com www.mcnewsautomotive.com and places like that if you're looking for a good deal. ebay = shady.

EDIT: also, this system uses all clamp sections except for the flange at the very end. clamp = leak, the more flanges the better. and i've never heard of a bullet muffler...

I'd hesitate simply due to the lack of specs provided.

Tubing size?
T-304 stainless throughout the whole system? Warranty?
"guaranteed to add substantial HP"? um...

MBRP, Borla or Bosal would be my recommendation!

you should just try a post in Buy/Sell saying you want an exhaust. Theres gotta be some high hp people out there looking to upgrade from a 2.25 to 3 inch. I got my MBRP this way - best $150 (shipped
)i ever spent
