So I thought I would include a brief "synopsis" of my exhaust woes. My 96 G 5 spd had the exhaust rusting problem. I tired to go stock cat-back off of ebay $215 shipped!!! great price, but 3 days after paypaling the the money, it was refunded with "we don't have anymore" and the included message. (even though the ebay auction said there were 97 in stock....no no Iam not bitter at all). Anyway the cat back can be viewed at mandrelexhaustsystems.com. I got the 2.5" aluminized system and paid $40 extra bucks to get a resonator put on. I highly recommend them...I dealt with Josh. Now the only complaint I have is that the tip was not welded on perfectly in the right position. It is a stainless slash cut tip and it is a quarter inch rotated to the passenger side...but noone will ever notice but me. Sounds great! low tone, moderatly loud under load. Went is real easy...getting the old one off the cat was a whole different story!
