Best Aftermarket Exhaust System

We are working on replacing our Project 944's exhaust system in the next issue of 9 Magazine.

Currently we have the MSDS header and would like to get the members of the board's feedback on who has the best non-cat pipe system and muffler.

Look into FabSpeed, I think they make pretty nice stuff.

EDIT: Sorry, it looks like they only make systems for the 951:

it sounds like B&B (billy boat) makes the best exhaust setup for the 944.

or at least he makes the most expensive one...

I second B&B. Too bad turbos muffle the sound so much on their own. I bet the B&B on an N/A would be especially nice.

I think the best bang for your buck, or maybe even the best would be to the custom route.

since we are talking about excellent exhaust systems, what about on the intake side?

You already have the best intake.

Take an engineering course on air flow. Particularly in plenums and pipes.

About the only improvement you can make on a "stock" intake is to match the manifold ports with the heads. Even this is questionable.

Some report improvements with an NA with a bored out throttle body. This is really just a phenomena as the larger bore just makes the throttle respond quicker. Could get one of those fast response throttle cable cams and do the same thing for less money.
