Exhaust cut out or manzo exhaust?

Hey everyone,

I currently have a stock exhaust system in a 05 sedan and thinking about upgrading. I am currently on a budget of that of a broke college student but would like to make my car sound better and perform a bit better too. I live in California so the strict exhaust law is scaring me a bit. Should I get a remote controlled exhaust cutout or get a manzo car back. I am open to more ideas within a decent price range. Thanks so much in advance!

The Megan will probably be the quietest cat back exhaust. And its a full 3" exhaust so you should get some minimal gains. That's the best price I could find for the full (two section) exhaust.

Stock sedan exhaust? Cut out some resonators or put in a dirt cheap used stock coupe exhaust. You won't gain any power off just an exhaust, or really anything else for that matter unless you wanna drop $1500 for 15 WHP. Save your money for maintenance (HITACHI CAM SENSORS, polyurethane suspension bushings, rear differential bushing, emergency parts replacement fund), or a newer car. Coming from a broke college student who wouldn't be able to afford to drive the G if I were out buying new exhausts and fixing up the car's non-mechanical issues.

I'm looking for an exhaust that has a good sound but not too loud to draw the attention of cops. Ill look into these and see how they sound tho!

Yea I know I'm not going to gain 15 whp but I heard freeing up the exhaust could help with power. I just got this car a month ago so getting a new one isn't an option. I just replaced bank 1 cam sensor and overall the car is running find. I usually do all my own mods and repairs as much as I can, so I'm not sure if cutting out the resonators is an option for me. But ill see if I can find an exhaust shop that will do it for cheap
