personally im not a fan of the cars look, for me it was for fun, same goes for my friend. we wanted to keep the cost down for the most part. it was more of a learning experience.

So originally its was running an open downpipe, but the amount of exhaust gasses coming into the car was absolutley ridiculous so we went to American Muffler and just got a huge 3inch pipe running from the downpipe all the way to the back of the car
