My first step with my 99 SC2 will be to attempt to upgrade my exhaust and add a CAI...any suggestions?

no 4inch rice exaust. moroso makes a nice one, I'm sure if you search the forum you can find it. as for the cai, don't settle for the really cheap ones. forget I found it.

a cheap cai will work fine! it will save alot of money if u get a cheap cold air and just buy a aem filter to put on it than paying $300 for a aem cai (i cant justify spending $250 more for one persons aluminum tube over another) just make sure...

1) u have a manual (cai wont fit an auto)

2) u get a bypass valve (so u dont hydro lock ur engine)

3) it doesnt ran alot where u are

if u cant do all 3 of those then get a sri

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

for exhaust

i think 99 is the first year they added more bolts to the manafold so u cant get a 91-92 oem header. if u want a header u can get a obx one on ebay for around $160

keep the cat cuz it is high flow and u wont get a 1hp gain from removing it

have a shop custom bend u some pipe no bigger than 2.25 if u are not going turbo. u can choice crush bent or pay alot more for mandrel bent. for my cat back piping i got 2.25 crush bent and had one shop tell me 200 and another 65 so shop around.

if u dont want it to sound ricy then get a long glasspack, the longer it is the deeper and less ricy it will sound. at my local advanced they had 18", 21" 27" and 31" thrush glass packs, i got the 31 not on sale for $25. u can fit bigger, the biggest i know of anyone having in a saturn is 36"

for a muffler u can do what u want. just dont get a ebay special "n1" muffler lol they are that cheap for a reason. u can get a good straight thru if u want but they tend to be expensive. if u want to sound better than stock but not loud then get a super turbo muffler at any autoparts strore, they cost less than $40. alot of people have talked about getting that moroso spiril flow muffler, i almost did, but i didnt cuz i still havnt heard the sound of it on our cars yet. i went with a "turbo tube" but good luck finding one on the net, i still need to ask the guy who makes them and i will let everyone know. basicly its like a resinator or glasspack that makes one big lazy twist thru the pipe insted of being straight thru...
heres a pic



and heres a vid of how it sounds. the vid is off from the sound so just listen to it or u will get confused lol
