I actually just bought one. Stock one rusted out real bad. Picked this up shipped for $350USD.

Hopefully will have it installed in a few weeks.

Will post pics for you guys and will also give insight on the product.

I bought one of these awhile back, its rather good quality, and it clears the rear subframe quite well without touching. I have yet to drop my motor in to see if it clears the oil pan and front cross members, But from what I can tell it looks to be ok...

I should be getting mine in on Thursday, hopefully starting the install this weekend.

Very pumped about actually having an exhaust that works, haha.

Mine should be in place by tomorrow.

I just hope its not loud, I had a custom exhaust on my last car and it made my head want to pop at about 3500rpm.

It also set off a car alarm off once lol.

Judging from the video's I dont think it will be too loud at all.

Just got my 3" downpipe...WHOOO!!!

But that 3" flow is going to do wonders for extra power/torque!

Nope its not loud at all, Im very relieved. So far Ive only noticed that it seems to be a lower toned gurgle at idle, and the turbo spools up a lot easier.

I couldnt really get on the gas yet since theres still some work left to be done on the car, but Im VERY happy with it. 8)

Going to be installing mine this weekend hopefully.

How does it sound driving? Accelerating? on de-cel?

Any notice of more power? Torque?

While driving its a bit louder than stock, the actual exhaust note hasnt changed much, maybe a little lower pitched while cruising.

I couldnt really get on the gas much yet, just normal acceleration to like 3k-ish, that was a higher pitched tone than stock, I liked it though, nothing obnoxious, like a honda with a fartcan is. :P When I get it back from the mechanic with all the pieces of the car bolted back on like the front cross member, then I'll be able to romp on it more. And take some pictures. I also hear the turbo going a lot more than before, love that hsssssssssssssssssssss sound :D

I dont remember anything sounding much different when decelerating, you need to get on the gas or be listening to it idle for it to sound different.

I also had a SSautochrome DP with a cat in it put on at the same time, I have emission tests to pass every other year so I dont want to be switching back and forth. So maybe a catless DP will make things a little louder or grittier sounding. :shrug:
