I currently have a Cherry Bomb Extreme axelback system on my 08 CS. After talking to my warranty holder, I can do any exhaust modifications with the understanding that "any car malfunction that can be directly attributed to my modifying of the exhaust will not be covered by the warranty". After saying that "officially" he then gave me an honest answer of "You may get a check engine light" when I asked about modding the cat converters.
That said, unless someone gives me a reason the be more afraid of possible problems, I'm ready to Frankenstein my exhaust. I'm keeping the stock manifolds (for now). With the Cherry Bombs, what options do I have to make my exhaust even meaner? I've been scouring AM.com looking for ideas:
1)swap out factory cats for Pypes Hi-Flo's
2)replace H-pipe with a Mac catted pro-chamber (http://www.americanmuscle.com/mac-cu...er-0509gt.html
3)Swap out H-pipe with a O/R H pipe. (MAC or Pypes)?
I've driven catless vehicles before and am fine with the fume smell. My biggest concern is the check engine light and what I can do to remove that. (Tuning isn't really ideal at the time as that also craps on my warranty)
Basically, what is everyone's opinion as far as sound quality/volume? I want this thing to sound ferocious and couldn't think of anyone else to turn to but the resident experts here
