Well since we have Meurz and Abraxxa's pics I guess the only thing missing now is pics of it on a 165 :D

In that case, I'd save up to buy the complete HKS system.. You want the baddest GT4 in Hawaii, so you know you need it :D Plus this exhaust will last longer than the car, try that with a home made system for that price (Custom SS might be even more expensive..) :roll:

Abraxxa, In your vids and msn conversations you showed/told me that yours is about the same sound as the stocker? Mine is deffo louder and deeper..

You know what sound i love, when you take everything off except your downpipe. Sitting at a light today, soccer feild right beside me, teams are playing, the second i go from the light...i mean every single person turned and just looked, the game came to like a complete hault :D . I must say it sounds like a v8 at idle and when i hit boost, boy does the wastegate sound nice!!!! I'm looking at purchasing a new exhaust since the aussie took a dive for the worst, i love the sound of the hks, but what i really want to know is how does it sound with no cats, just straight 3''? anybody on this board by chance have a setup like this? Anyways i love the sound and i hope i can post the part 2 with a complete hks system!! nice install by the way, the rear crossmember is being a bitch to me, looks like 2 of the 4 bolts are stripped :(.

like a WRX on steroids.
my system's not mandrel bent, though.
some SMALL crush bent sections. not too much difference, i imagine.

i'll be upgrading to a motoria system in the near future, maybe...OR hopefully i could score and old school Hi-Power. they do have the same angle as the silent power, yes?

if i get the motoria, i'll try and work on making it angled like the HKS...

@meurz: yes, it got louder after some 100 kilometers and its a difference from outside, but not so much from the inside.

shoak: nice vid! was that an SSQV that i heard?

and meurz: sorry to pester you, but you say the old school hi-power is discontinued, are there any sources for them? and the angle will be the same as your muffler, yes? (silent vs. hi-power
