I am about to drop a '97 2.0L into my '95. I have some questions about exhaust. :scratch:

1- Will pretty much any exhaust that fits a '91-'96 1.9L fit on the 2.0L as well?

2- I've read many gripes about Pacesetter headers. Anyone who has one please post on your satisfaction/dissatisfaction with them.

3- I've read about the exhaust manifolds from 1st gen GT's being header-like and compatible with some other motors- would they work on a '97 2.0L?

4- I want to upgrade exhaust but I want something mellow that gives me more power. This car will be a part time pizza mobile and I don't want to have to take it easy all of the time because I might tick someone off with noisy exhaust. Any ideas on who makes a fairly quiet muffler that still improves performance?

5- What about replacing my catalytic converter. Does the stock one on a '95 flow well or should I replace it with another?

Thanks!!!

I don't know much about the other stuff you're asking, But I just installed a Flowmaster 50 series and it is not too bad noise wise. I don't know how it'll sound with the 2.0 but it sounds great with my 1.8. It has a lower tone until I take it up to the high 3's(rpms) or above, but only when I hammer on the gas pedal. Then it develops a higher pitch, but nothing like a "ricer" would have. Best of luck figuring out what to do! Peace Out.

Nuke- I read that but it's just about a cat back exhaust. At least that's what I thought it said.

Major- don't hurt yourself

thanks for the 411

With everything I have heard about the pacesetter header I am tempted to go buy one and try it for myself. Just to see if it gets a thumbs up or thumbs down. One minute I hear they are great, next I hear they suck. Oh well, let us know how it goes.

are there even any headers available for the 2.0 SPI besides the ones from Pacessetter? I haven't ever seen any, but it would be nice to have some options...
