Is there any FULL exhaust (header to tip) that retains NPP for less than 3K?

It seems that most every combination of an entire system, no matter how it's configured, ends up being about $3,000 from motor all the way to tip. I'm not even caring about cats either, going for catless.

Any suggestions? Also hard to find much with black quad tips.

Stainless Works full system shows $2940 on their site. PM RDPStore on this site and he will give you a discount. I went with the almost full system into the stock muffler. It isn't too much louder than stock and can be Camry quiet if I want. If you do go with Stainless Works you may want to request the x-pipe be made without the internal resonators as they neck down to 2.5". That's what I did

+1 on the SW system and resonator delete for the x-pipe. I did the same!

Thanks guys, but that's still roughly 3K, and from the clips I've heard the SW drones pretty damn bad.

Could do TSP headers into a Borla cat back for around 2700

$2,700 is close enough to 3K for me. I guess it's basically 3K any way you slice it for a full system.

Why not just do headers and a mid pipe in to the stock NPP if you really need the function?

The aftermarket axlebacks still sound better than stock NPP from the video's in seems.

Yeah the quiet mode eems to barely be any quieter than open. That's why I kept the stock muffler.

I still fail to understand the reason anyone who isn't going to make 650+ add a catback with headers (especially those who keep the cats)... No gains to be had with 3in vs 2.75in for the money and the power to be found is in the cat deletes and headers, in general - Not the cat-back.

Buy a set of catless headers and leave the NPP on. You can do that for under $1k if you're thrifty and look for a deal, I did it.

It's all about the sound. I have catless headers and a catback exhaust and it makes me smile every time I start the car All about having those race car sounds

My car with the NPP open doesn't sound much different (if at all) then the folks I've heard who have spent $3k+

And to me the (very minor) tone difference isn't worth $2k+

But it's your money.

For reference - First car in this video is mine (don't bother giving me crap for the time, first run on DRs in this car ever) -


Sounds great to me
