Been awhile since I have been on here last. Shoot, they hadn't even come out with the TC cobalt yet...Looks like this site has come a long ways and everyone has the cobalt upgrades dialed in lol.

Anyways on to my question. I installed one of those el' cheapo fart cans a few years back which actually sounds better IMO then all those fancy exhaust systems (very deep tone), which I have been looking into. I see ebay offers some full bolt on exhaust systems that include the header all the way back to the exhaust tip for around $250. This seems extremely cheap to me but is this how much they are going for? And is this a decent upgrade over the stock exhaust?

Here is a link to an ebay add that I am talking about: 3 5" Burnt Tip Catback Cat Back Manifold Header Exhaust 05 07 Chevy Cobalt 2 2L | eBay

It's good if you either spend a bit more and get the Tsudo exhaust. I'd personally get the ZZP though for not too much more.

Or buy that and change out the muffler. Keep in mind that doesn't come with a downpipe and this header just got a good review on CSS.

That's a fake cat BTW so you'll need a tune with it. It's a copy of the ZZP long tube. You'll also want stock gaskets not what come with it.

I bought the EBay catback.

I replaced the muffler, which is the problem.

Get a higher quality muffler. I had a Borla Pro XS welded on. Very mellow note. No rasp or whimpy noise for a N/A 2.2
