I'm eventually getting the stainless steel catback 2.5"(size?) exhaust system from bareend.com (Matt). but that's about 450 in itself... and I think it's for GTs. Not 100% sure on that though.

What exactly do you want to do with your exhaust? I'm not sure exactly what all is out there for the 1.9.

I do know you could get that 1.9 Pacesetter header...or you could go to the junkyard and grab some 88.5-90 1.9 H.O. GT head and throw it on your 1.9. That'd give you 107 hp and raise your torque to 115.

I was always told that on 4 cylinder non turbo grocery getters (pretty much thats what my car is) Exhaust doesnt really matter you go by sound not performance..i mean yout gotta watch and make sure you dont lose power but for the most part i always thought it was about sound....

That's funny chad, I just made about 210 lbs of dough into numerous medium and small pizza balls. I was loaded with dough. :wink:

Have you decided what you want to do with your money yet 95? coil overs? intake? exhaust pieces? :?

But i think im doing the suspension cause i really need struts

any suggestions for the lowest springs? If not springs I havent heard anything bad and a lot of good thing about ground control coilovers. so would they be the ones to get if i got coilovers? Are there any alternatives that might be a little cheaper than ground controls but still offer some quality?

Sorry 95, can't help you on the coilovers question I'm looking into that route myself right now. But James, you said that you are getting a ca back system that has 2.5" pipes? When I had mine installed I looked into the diameters for the pipes and found that pretty much you only wanna go 2.25" or you'll start to lose some of your bottom end. it may not be much of a loss from only .25 inches but personally I try to save all the power that I can in my GT. Hope to hear back about the coilovers too 95, be sure to post anything relevant about any new product reviews, all I have seen are the Eibach springs and the Tokico ZX2's.

Misfit: I'm eventually going turbo. and with the price of the 2.5" catback, that won't come for a while. I'm actually going to take in my car hopefully late this week to have the midpipe behind the cat replaced because of it leaking like it is. :x

The big problem with going to big on the exhaust is that you wind up with slow moving exhaust gasses that actaully causes backpressure. thats where the bottom end power goes. Even though you get a nice deep tone, it turns hollow because the pipes are too big.
