People like magnaflows around here.

Is the rest of your exhaust 3"?

I like the sound of vibrant mufflers/resonators.

muffler (http://www.summitracing.com/parts/VPE-1149/?rtype=10)
resonator (http://www.summitracing.com/parts/VPE-1794/)

A good combo is a 12" vibrant resonator with a magnaflow 1481x

Bw86 is it a direct fit for b5? I spoke to some guy and he said i have to make sure it has the right offset he was being a jerk

1.8t or 2.8? I'm assuming 1.8 since you said "cat" and "downpipe" singular..

If you're making a custom exhaust, you'd want the inlet right in the middle, like where it is on the muffler I posted.

Ok cool so i should put a resonator on also tryin to avoids tickets but i still want it to sound beasty at wide open throttle...any good places i could go to get pipes welded? I see your from li BW86 im from brooklyn...was also wondering if i should go from 3inch cat downpipe to 2.5 res and muffler or 3"

You're keeping the cat? Ditch it and get a test pipe. If your testpipe/cat + downpipe is 3", just keep it 3" throughout.

My friend welded up my exhaust - so I can't comment on a good shop to do the welding.

It might get a litle raspy without a resonator. I edited my first post to include a res.

Simple antifouler would have solved that but whatever [:p]
