is it april 1st?  thats funny.
I understand that people will make comprimises, but I am not going to
recommend something that is not as good just for the hell of it.  
Only reason I can think of not to buy the best is practicality.
not wanting to offend a freind of mine in the bizz is not a
reason...Theres alot of nice guys selling used cars, but Im not gonna buy
from Mr Nice Guy a yugo for $6000, no matter how nice he is...
You said you dont want ppl to get hung up on whats best.  I would rather
strive to be best.  If you cant afford a decent exhaust now, dont half ass
it, wait, save and do it rite and get what you want...dont settle cuz
people tell you "its good enuff".  Thats why you see alot of guys at the
track with muscle cars running 14's...cuz the tech guy at Summit said 224
duration and a edlebrock performer are the limit for a street 350....

Why the 2.5 tailpipe? What about the cooling effect and the fact that
factory cars have smaller tailpipes?  Surely if a 2.25" tailpipe is
sufficuent for a car witha  3" DP, it is sufficient for a 2.5 DP.
Sound plausible? it did 2 weeks ago at th beginning of the thread..

That goes both ways.
