Yea the muffer is going to be kind of expensive. Maybe you can try to pick up one used. The parts you need are for the exhaust manifold 2350 or 1759 and for the muffler 2354 or 1763 i think they are the same but the one is from the FTK and blue annodized. You will need 7733 to couple both together and some zipties. Its going to be hard to find an exhaust setup for that because they dont make cars like that anymore.

your going to have to run nova plug in them. Pull the plug out and look for the number on it also see if the part that faces the engine is tapered or flat. If its tapered its a turbo plug and your going to have to get a turbo plug. And those type of engines are plug specific.

Yea that exhaust is good and should fit no problems and better than factory one.

I used Ofna CD-3 steel diffs and the wolfpak adapters and put 1/8 scale tires on the rear that I slightly cut down they were about 45mm wide car really hooked up of course it was illegal for roar sanction club racing but I used it for parking lot bashing and drag racing. Car was alot of fun.
