What's a decent exhaust system, the 1st gen 3.3? For a poor mans budget
Buy a muffler of your choosing and go to a muffler shop. All the bolt ins are normally more expensive than if you just did this yourself.
What he said. Go to the youtubes, give the clips a listen. then go to your muffler shop and see what they have cheaply. My muffler shop always has some take off type castaway mufflers cheap cheap. I bought a magnaflow (brand new, not cast off), and its mad loud. I dont like it a bit.
I forget what sizing gen 1s use for pipes, but I run a magnaflow 12580 on my truck in a 2 in 1 out setup with larger piping from the cats back and a deleted Y pipe. Sounds perfect for a v6 xterra.
Cheapest way to so the exhaust is to go on rock auto and get a factory Y pipe, go on ebay and buy a muffler, then go to an exhaust shop and have them do the install.
I did a Borla XS on my 1st gen. I loved the way it sounded.
