Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse
Hi! This is a nice project and I'll be glad to help. I suggest that you put chambered muffler for a real tough but not scandalous sound, HKS or 5ZIGEN exhausts will do it. Regarding the headers, I suggest that you get a TANABE. Hope this helps and good luck for the project car!

I suggest running the headers of your choice into 2 1/2 to 3 in exhuast all the way down, (dual exhuast) cat back system - with a flow master muffler. The cat bat system will allow the dual exhuast of the headers, into one pipe after the catylitic converter, and into one flowmaster muffler, giving it a nice quiet rumble. Not that choppy, ear piercing screech exhaust tips make.
Please let me know what you think.

Every exhaust system will sound different. Every one will cost differnt also. Best bet is to shop online for a cat back system and then either install them yourselve if its clamp on. Or have a shop install if there welded on.
You can install them and drive to a muffler repair shop uncorked if the shop is close, if you choose.
Noone can tell you what to buy because its yours ears that are going to have to deal with the noise..
You prabably wont notice alot of difference until you install a computer program option.
Just be aware that we see more transmissions fail after a performance upgrade than any other time. If you have an option for a trans shift kit upgrade I would highly recommend do it before you decide to, that is if you havea automatic.

If it is my car i would get the Magnaflow exhaust. It is not to loud and it will give you the power. Sorry we do not have the specs for the horse power.

U need to join a Mitsubishi owners forum and ask what others have tried and what really works, from that u can decide what to buy, Borla is over priced, here is a link to one such forum, i am a Corvette owner and used my forum to buy many parts, my problem was just like yours what works and what is worth the cost and gets the job done. many times this stuff like exhaust is really a matter of personnel preference, maybe u like the high end names like Borla just because it is cool and cost is no concern, all the brands u mentioned are excellent and all work well.
