I have a 84 4000 Q and had a new exhaust put on at 90K, I now have 162K and
it is still OK. For auto-x I wanted a performace increase and found all
replacement stuff expensive. All I wanted was to replace pipe and muffler
from the catalitic converter back. I ended up just having a local muffer
place (good one, that is) put in a custom one. It was cheap. The whole
thing cost $140.
I went from the stock 2-1/4 to 2-1/2 pipe. I had them put in a Walker
Dyno-max Super Turbo (cool performace muffler) and they even put a crome
tip on the end and sprayed the rest with black paint.
I noticed quite a bit of performance improvement. I'd say, about 10HP.
The only side effect is that they Walker is a bit noiser, but I enjoy it
myself. You can really hear the motor, and it sounds more like a race car
