You can not tape your exhaust it will get too hot and the tape woukld melt. The part of the ex haust that you are going to want to replace is called the cat-back exhaust system

My mechanic replaced mine for $125, he had the muffler and pipe from another Nissan. Look on ebay they have some really good prices as well.
