It only took a day or two to get a shipping notice. The system arrived 7 days after a paid for it. Pretty quick considering it's size and weight.

ok so my exhaust came in this morning. and surprise surprise! NO DOWNPIPE =[

Imma email them ASAP about it and get my effing downpipe.

But, i proceeded to installing the exhaust. took about 3 hours. most of the time was trying to get the old crusty exhaust.

It didnt hit me until after i finished the install that the tip is rubbing against the tow hook =[[[. I still have yet to install the crossmember and the midpipe hanger did not reach the rubber mount but the exhaust is pretty solid.

As for the sound, its actually surprisingly quiet. at idle and at cruise, I don't really notice it that much, but once at full boost and WOT, MAN this thing sounds like sexx!

pictures comming soon =]]. Motoria FTW

I guess when its idling at the normal 800 or so rpm its not that bad, but on cold mornings when the idle is up at 1500 on start up, man its really loud. Specially at 4:30 in the morning when I have to get going for work.

(even tho I already have an 3in installed that WarTowels sold me) bwuahah but nonetheless. I paid for the DP as well and i better effing get it. Im in the process on taking pictures of it on the ST165, It looks pretty sick. will post in a few minutes.

wow thats a bummer! Always seems I find these things too late. Anyhow I got mine for 369 shipped, and it appears it weighs enough over yours that I can be fairly certain it incudes the DP no hastles. I will keep you guys posted and throw up pics and sound clips ASAP.

Super update. Downpipe came in today in a separate package. I guess they DID send it out with the exhaust but got seperated when it got shipped.

BlueDragon, a turbo back exhaust usually just means a catback exhaust system for a turbo.

If you are referring to the description "race downpipe," i was told by them that actually refers to the midpipe (unless they otherwise reclarified it to everyone).

In any case, people have been getting downpipes with their orders, obviously there is no reason why you shouldn't either. They are habitual in messing things up, despite pulling through in the end.

If its anything like MY order, the downpipe comes in a seperate box and should arrive within a day or so. but that was just my case. If not, just complain and they'll make you fill out some form BS. Either way, the only reason i wanted to down pipe was the bracket support that it came with for the downpipe i already had but if it does end up cracking. I got an extra downpipe just in case :D

I think they send it from two different sources from my experience. The first box seems to come from ssac while the second box comes from xs-power. I know it's the same company but might be a different location since my downpipe was the only box that has xs-power sticker on it :shrug: . also the box that housed the downpipe has xs-power written all over it compared with the rest that are in bubble wrap.
