    Exhaust upgrade for a 99' Dakota

    Well my dad's Dakota is cool but it needs to have some more sound to it. What kind of an exhaust would you guys recommend?



    2006 Bright Island Blue 6s: stock 6 disc in dash, Hertz Hi-Energy 6.5" comps, MB Quart Ref 12", eclipse 5-channel sub amp.

    Car mods: Lowered on Mazdaspeed springs with Koni Yellow shocks, Racing beat front/rear sway bars with AWR end links, LED turn signals, tail lights, front side markers, 18" ADR Cypher rims, 55w HID's in low beam and fogs, 5% tint all the way around. No go fast mods yet...tuning and Mazda6 don't go well together .

    Steve a.k.a. ss3079: So this one lady goes, "These ignorant people who drive around blasting there music, they cant hear emergency vehicles"
    So that set me off, and I said "Well then why do they let deaf people drive?"

    How much are you looking to spend? Are you wanting to replace the whole exhaust setup, or just swap out a muffler?

    If he wants loud, I'd go with Borla/Flowmaster/Banks.

    The best "louder but not much" aftermarket exhaust I have heard is the Gibson systems.



    Comming Spring 2009


    I make rear-loaded, double crabshell, isobaric enclosures.

    Re: Exhaust upgrade for a 99' Dakota

    I'm thinking I might just let my dad keep his car and get me a 99' R/T. What do you think of that idea?
