I want an exhuast setup soon, but not so sure how I should go about it.
Alot of yall seem to have custom setups.
What would be the best setup for my stock k03?
What do I ask for when I go to a shop?

If you still have an un-chipped stock K03, skip the exhaust and get a chip upgrade to GIAC or APR. An exhaust is going to be a complete waste on an unchipped car.

You'll notice chipped difference a lot more than exhaust. Either way go to your local exhaust shop and ask for 2.5" cat-back. My 3" ran $400 installed including everything, muffler, labor, etc. I'm also a BT which is why I recommend 2.5" for you. Expect to pay around $500-600 installed though would be my guess.

i have pulled quite a few late nighters washing and waxing my car. its the best time because its not hot and you can do everything with no sunlight on the car

if you want something quiet, go for an oem s4 muffler and have that welded onto a custom exhaust, or just fork up some extra money and go borla / milltek

i had a custom magnaflow and hated it... do it right the first time and spend the money

why did you hate the custom magnaflow? i think it sounds good, it was a 2.5. what magnaflow muffler did you have?

I agree. I would get an exhaust before chipping.

Get the chip first. It makes about 40 hp while the exhaust makes about 5 for roughly the same price. If you like it quiet then keep the stock exhaust. An aftermarket exhaust isn't going to make a big difference on a K03 car.

i dunno if ill be flamed on by saying this but do what i did keep ur stock exhaust just get a new magnaflow muffler and remove your resonator trust me its perfect its louder then stock but honestly not to much louder you get some small backfires but it sounds great no hp increase no power increase but i like the sound i kinda want more though all that cost me about 150 the resonator was 25 dollars to remove the muffler was about 125 magnaflow....

Car looks good. Your car is my car's evil twin lol. I'm going to polish my car with an actual polisher soon....before the weekend I hope for Midwest Dubfest in Indy...the Anti-waterfest lol. Should add a lot of shine to the paint.

APR chip or giac, stock exhaust.
I think ill jsut go with that going by what onemoremile said.
im not really looking for sound, just performance

I went all out and got a Milltek, best thing I did for my car....other than the ko4, software, clutch, yada yada yada....but it was well worth it, sounds AWESOME!!! and is really quiet, I got the resonated model. sounds sooooo good.
