Best Up pipe & turbo-back
I have an 02' Wagon and am looking to now replace exhaust and get a Utec. I have completed my suspension mods (strutbars, endlinks, bigger rims, new tires, with Whiteline swaybars under the Xmas tree) and am trying to research exhaust mods, but there are more opinions than ice-cream flavors.
So, can you share your experience on what is the best up-pipe/down-pipe and/or turbo-back exhaust? I don't mind mixing and matching vendors, I just want high quality.
My criteria is:
1) good performance (hp)
2) good installation and fit
3) good sound without being too loud
4) cost (not to exceed $1800)
I also need to be able to pass CA state emissions.
Thanks in advance...
