Default Exhaust for 7MGE

Okay, So maybe I just missed it, but I've searched like back through 35-40 pages and didn't find anything on exhaust. I am completely lost with which exhaust system I should go with.

What aftermarket exhaust systems do you other 7MGE owners use?

What parts should a complete system include? Straight pipe, muffler?

I really like the dual-tip exhaust that I bought with the car but have only seen a pacesetter muffler that even remotely resembles it, and I'm not familiar with pacesetter.

I also don't want an extremely loud exhaust, my goal was to just restore the car as close to stock as possible, with added power with the intake, headers and exhaust. Maybe you guys can help a lost soul? THANKS IN ADVANCE

I own a 88 na supra, and i went with the complete pace setter exhaust and it wasn't that expensive and it isn't all that bad if you consider the fact that you can't find anything else for the non turbo supra. I have the pace setter headers which where right around 200 bucks, high flow cat and cat back exhaust for about 290 bucks, so you're lookin at around 500 all together without installation. As far as performance it really helps out the top end alot, but knowin how heave the supras are it really doesn't much off the line. Do a search on google for pace setter exhaust and you will find everything you need.

nah didn't really check the FAQS too indepthly... just seemed pretty vague for the non-turbo. And the exhausts I find online, compared to my 97' maxima just seem so darn cheap I expect them to suck!

But the pacesetter is probally the way I'll go unless anyone objects.

I have seen some nice stainless steel headers for the 7MGE on ebay. Look around.

Are you familar with maxima.org? Many people there have used pacesetter with good experiences. I'm going to be looking for a setup myself pretty soon so I'd like to know what you end up with and what you think of it.

Yea i visited maxima.org religously. Never posted though. I think the pacesetter looks good, just seems too cheap. Like it's too good to be true for it to be that inexpensive. I will probally purchase the headers and exhaust in the next few weeks here. Need to wait for my Visa

The problem with Pacesetter headers is that the paint burns off right when you start it up then after that it will rust. If you can, get the paint off, get it coated first before ever using it, then you have a lasting relationship with your header.....;-}.

what about the exhaust? Does the exhaust do that as well? I will probally just get the OBX headers now. Those were my original my plan, but I figure why not go all Pacesetter?! So after hearing that i'll just go OBX headers, get a new head gasket while i'm at it, and replace the exhaust with pacesetter.

After reading these, and all the other supra, forums for a couple years, it seems that the OBX are the choice. You'll have to splice in longer wires for the 02 sensor (no big deal).

I just talked to a guy last week that was building a street racer, and he told me he installed a little box that eliminated the 02 sensor. He said the box simulated the signal of a perfect fuel mixture. It was fairly cheap. He and his dad have built many streetrods, and he has been in the parts business for a long time.

I will try to find out more and let you know.
