Well, this is a long story:

My dad practically owns a mechanic's shop in Hopwood, PA. SO, when I got the Z24, I knew I needed a new Exhaust because the guts of the muffler were blown out. SO, I thought , what the hell, go all out and get the whole exhaust system replaced.
Well, my dad's supplier called him and said they can't give him the stuff we need. That was like a month ago, so, finally, I called my dad today and he said he has the new, stainless steel converter and muffler in his hands! YAY!! SO this weekend, I finally get to see this stuff that I've waited so long for! It'll be on the car this Wednesday, if everything goes as planned! I will also have pics posted of it on here when it gets done!

good job! :D

i had a chance to hear and test drive a burgandy phase 2 z24 (5 speed of course, but never bought it because it had way too much rust for the price he wanted) it had a magnaflow muffler and magnaflow cat, it sounded badass :D

i've got brand new exhaust from the engine back, new stock cat, and a glasspack muffler on, and it also sounds pretty good, yours will sound really good, better then mine, since i only clamped my stuff on

might have some issues getting a tip to line up with the cutout, i did as well, just either get a piece of pipe bent to line up, or a piece of flex pipe, and just mount it after shaping it, because once that flex pipe gets hot, it wont stay its shape, i used flex pipe, then bought a few muffler straps and strapped it into place :D

Looks nice considering all the crap you had to go through.... I dunno, I'll have to fit it on, and then see what kind of tip I can get. my dad wants to take the original tip off of the "Z" and put it on, because he likes stock!

Nice nice. If I get any kind of a tip, it'll be from magnaflow, i just like their style, plus they're stainless steel!!

Ok, I went home last weekend and got to see the muffler and converter. DAMN! They look SHARP! Satinless steel really shiny. I'm sorry I don't have pics up of them yet. I was to busy working on my clear corners... which also look good!
