Default New to the Forum and Question about Exhaust

Good Afternoon everyone, or evening since its pretty late.
I just spent all day yesterday(Sunday) fixing the water pump that broke on Saturday. Yes it took me all day, but I am a novice when it comes to working on vehicles.

I digress. It works great now so I also built a custom Spectre Air Intake and it sounds much better. But I am bit by the DIY bug and want to try doing an exhaust next.

Any suggestions? Or should I do something else first?

Something easy to put on lol. I don't want to to loud, but something better than stock would be good.

Something that just helps it breath better, i hear that is a good way to get small gains on power and MPG.

Is this any good?

not too bad at all, if you can keep it from leaking...ive never had luck with clamps...and those tips will need to be welded on. i seen that in the description.

as far as flowing...magnaflow, aerochanbers ect are going to be the best with the str8 thru style. but flowmaster, cherry bomb will be louder. but you dont really gain alot so id go with whatever you think sounds best.

unless you want the fancy tips, and your local muffler shops charge alot of money, id find a good muffler that you like and have it welded on, my cherry bomb extreme was $60, paid $30 or $40 for install at my local shop and couldnt be happier!
