I am looking to buy an exhaust that is a little cheaper than the all-mighty Remus. Any suggestions? I want a classy dual chrome-tip with a low tone and relatively quiet.

Anyone know of any other exhausts like this besides the remus?

Thanks,

The universal Remus from what i've read only supports applications on cars with less than or equal to 150hp. If you try to put it on a car that has a hp rating higher than 150, they claim it won't last as long, and i'm not sure if they guarantee it. I haven't personally seen any use the universal remus, so i couldn't tell you anything else from my experience, this is only what i've read/heard.:)

well i've heard stromung is about $400 for the full cat-back, not sure if that's in Inferno's price range but i hear good things about it...for the Legend-specific Remus, i was quoted $499 with shipping included, i might be able to get the price down a lil more, not sure, but even at that price i feel it's a good deal, shop around, don't sell yourself short on your legend, i learned it the hard way, i definitely will only buy the best this time around :)

That's true...I might as well get the Remus...afterall, you get what you pay for.

Only problem is...I have put my number all over the place, looking for a 6-speed coupe/sedan...I dont want to have someone call back with a good deal on a coupe after paying $500 for a Remus for a sedan.

Eh, I would rather have a 6speed sedan anyway...maybe I will go with the Remus now.

Ok, next question...who knows some good places to find a Remus at a good price?

inferno - it won't matter whether you have a coupe or sedan if you buy a remus. the legend specific remus is made for coupes only; if you want to put it on a sedan, you have to get a ~4 inch extension pipe made for it to fit. by the way, i second the motion to get a remus - i *love* mine.

How much will a remus cost? I have a GS Sedan. What kind of extension pipe? Is it from remus themselves, or any shop can do it?

sorry guys, i disagree, the remus is an exact fit on the sedans, the GReddy on the other hand needs an extension...

That is what I always thought...and I have heard that the Greddy needed the extension...

Now, does anyone know where I can order myself a Remus?

Does anyone else NOT like the Remus look? I love the fact its Legend specific, but I am considering just throwing on dual aftermarket mufflers because the Remus tips are way too ugly... Whats with that squared off look? Looks like it belongs on a 70s Volvo!

In comes captain save a stromung!

I have the stromung and the only way you will have to pay 400 is if you get the all ss version or the aluminizes with the cat back extension. You can get the legend specific stromung in aluminized for around 300. NickD has the aluminized, maybe ask him about it.

As for the remus it can be had at call them

Future, the remus is a direct bolt on. No extension need. It is not a cat back though. Only axle back.

You can go with the universal magnaflow 14830 street muffler. It's around $120 and has a nice chrome finish. It also won't be much louder than stock.

Are you kidding me? I guess it's about personal preference, I love the remus dual-squaured tips, looks classy, but sport, perfect for the Legend, which is a luxury car. I think single fat pipes belong on Civics etc...

I don't like that Remus look either. Square exhaust tips just dont look right to me on an import.

Anybody have a picture of any of the exhausts listed above installed on a Legend? I haven't owned my Legend very long so I'm not up on this stuff.
Thanks,
Jim
