Does anybody know any complete aftermarket exhaust system replacements for these cars from the manifolds on back?

bolt-on cat-back? only one i can think of that's easily available is the JIC Bullet, but i think it's discontinued now. Wald, JP, and a couple other super high end JDM companies make them for the VIP scene but going rate on those is ~$2500 and up for a cat-back (rear section mufflers alone are ~$1000-1500).

generally your best bet is to get it made locally.

Whats a good muffler for these cars that gives it good sound but not overwhelming like there's a drone at hwy speeds, but throaty at idle and acceleration?

Do later models have an EGR? Theyre notorious for cracking on the ucf 1x.

If its a roar ditto for the fan clutch seizing.

Very true, I can remember as a kid whenever my family used to pull into the garage in the summertime and we closed the garage door behind us and there was total silence you could here small pinging noises coming from the car. It did not matter which car we used. I think it all depends on how enclosed the space is around the car and how quite the ambient noise is. I would assume that it would be hard to hear these noises if the car was parked outside.

I thought I just had a small leak in my 1997 ls's system... Turned out to be that the Y pipe was rotted, one manifold was cracked, and the egr tube was rotted. $80 for a used manifold on ebay, and a local custom exhaust shop took care of the Y pipe for me. It was going to be $175 for them to make me a Y pipe, but I ended up having them run dual pipes from the cats to the factory mufflers, and it only cost $150, AND their work has a lifetime warranty.
