What would be the best exhaust setup for good low-end power and a quicker, louder 2001 SC2 daily driver? Also.. anyone have a video or audio of the Thermal cat-back? Also, if I got a custom exhaust, what type of components should be included? I was thinking about a glasspack and high-flow cats with either a thermal muffler, maybe a dual exit muffler at the first bend in front of the gas tank with two separate pipes going out under the bumper, or a 3a Racing muffler cuz i've heard it on a stock SW2 before.. Btw, i don't mind a drone or loudness to it, personally, i want a straighter, not as raspy sounding exhaust. I'm really looking for a good sound, not ricey, but not too "beefy" cuz i like a deeper drone-ish exhaust note. BTW, would putting on a tip(or two) with resonator deepen or even out the sound? Any help and advice would be helpful. Thanks :)

Thermal has the best sounding exhaust, and probably the longest lasting as well.

Holy s*** Thank you! I've been looking everywhere for a clip. Without new headers, it would probably sound close to that or not as loud. Thank you. I'm completely sold. That thing really does sound great. Would it be any different if i got a custom dual exhaust with two thermal mufflers? or would it be possible to custom fit the muffler further from the tip, before or right after the first bend at the gas tank so it sounds more resonated? Would a Glasspack just make it quieter? Or is there any way to modify the Thermal exhaust to get it a little louder or have my own sound and still look good without dampening performance? Also, is it weld-on or bolt-on? would it make a difference if it was bolt-on, but i have it welded on?

"Monza Exhaust" this is the brand name
$405 for a catback
this is a generic photo from the manufacturer

I can't seem to find the Thermal catback right now, I will keep looking in the morning, but it was a different wholesaler


Here is the thermal

It's $500 + Shipping from the states. I would have to contact them for a quote on shipping.

I thought i had a magnaflow catback as well, but it seems to be only listing for the ION

Nothing wrong with a single tip, but anything that looks like that BIG one belongs on "other" cars! Good thing it's not that style.

i dont know the tips available, but only the thermal will fot on your car, the monza is for first gens. I contacted Thermal directly ratehr than another wholesaler so see if i can get dealer prices and become a dealer here in Ontario.

I will keep you posted on any price changes.

According to thermals website there is NO option to change tips, so i think they are all the same tips.

I dont have any pics on here, But i know Viperssaturn, and blazinsc1 i beleive has a thermal on his car as well, maybe one of them can supply some pics of the tip?
