Im buying a supercharger and I would like a nice 3" exhaust to go with it. I have 600 to spend and want something that will give me really good power(yes it is possible with SC for any newb who thinks they know something about exhuast reads this) I looked at the thermal in the CRSX store but ive never heard of any other DC5 3" exhuasts. Has anyone had any luck with any other brand name exhauts? If not i might just get one made.

I had to get a custom 3" made. I believe that thermal is the only one available.

Shark, there is a couple people here that have complaints about the Thermal, from it's design, to not truly being a fulll 3 inches. The best bang for the buck is to get a custom one, and it'll be the best for power most likely as well. Now for me, I'm trying to find a sound clip of a few custom setups, so I can choose which route I want to go. :D

how much did you spend getting it made?
It cost me $360. That is for 3" pipe and an Apexi N1 Turbo muffler. It sounds great but without the silencer, it is loud.

Jackson headers and no Cat plus DC Twin Canister is what I use....And it works great it gave me at least a 5 to 10 hp increase.

I have an HKS exhuast - i was wondering if i could use the muffler and build 3" SS to the muffler - i read somewhere that 2.5" can also push boost a lil higher - but i was jus wondering if i could salvage the muffler or would it be a waste

Some really modified N/A guys use 2.5 inch piping. Im pretty sure that EVERY guy who uses an SC makes more power then ANY N/A guy.
