$40 Cat Back Exhaust

My exhaust went recently and I saw a cat back system for about $200 it includes a muffler and a tail pipe. Needless to say I wasn't impressed, I started out wanting a dynomax turbo muffler and then I found out walker makes or owns thrush and thrush makes dynomax. So I put a $30 thrush turbo muffler on it and a $9.99 Tail pipe to turn the exhaust down towards the street.

I have a thrush wielded muffler, wielded in place of my stock muffler. Sounds like a muscle car.. Deep and throaty and not obnoxious

Nice louder than whatever was on there before. Nothing like the sound of a built v8 and not like a tuner very nice when stretching out the gears and getting close to 3000 rpms. I guess you could say there is a droan while cruising at 50 but imo if you don't want a louder exhaust don't buy a turbo muffler.

This may be a stupid question but I'm 17 and haven't worked on exhaust systems yet. So... Is the muffler welded on by a shop or you? Or does it have a clamp. I saw the tip was bolted on. I'm just wander if I would have to bring it to a shop or if I could do it my self.

You could clamp it then have it welded later or if you know how to weld you can do it yourself. I got lucky and the shop I got my engine replaced at, welded up my clamps that I put on when I cleared the cat out. They did it free of charge without telling me
