If you are wishing to reduce the drone, add a resonator. If you wish to reduce the volume, add an additional muffler. Resonators only smooth the sound.

+1 to this. No loss in flow with resonators. Only smoothness the flow.

I found the vband when I cleaned out my garage :lol:
I'm really happy with this MP, fit up perfectly to my aussie DP and blitz nur spec catback. It sounds awesome.

Only fitment issue(s) I had were:
-the edge of the crossmember pinch which I gave a couple bends with an adjustable wrench. no problem.
-the provided allen bolts are annoying? they seem to be quality material but allen bits on an airtool (even a torquing one) are easy to break/not a tool I use too often. So I just went to fastenal and ordered 3/8 b7 studs and nuts for the whole system. job done.
:D

Id like to see more trackforged parts for our cars, Id definitely buy from them again

bump, you can still get these on a built to order process.

We really need a st165t cross brace to make a 165 mid pipe. If anyone is willing to ship one in or drive one in. We have a 165 here, but just missing the cross brace underneath

Do you ship to APO? What 3" catback (or axle back?) bolts up to this midpipe?

I believe they ship anywhere as long as you are willing to pay shipping. This is made to fit the stock cat back. So if you have any cat back that follows factory routing this will fit.

The midpipe looks long. Would I use both sections with the full catback? I was looking for something like this:

If they both bolt up and fit, that answers my question.

The midpipe goes between the stock cat and the axle back. For me when my car was still alive i had it in this order: berk 3" dp, forged performance midpipe with test pipe on, some generic 3" axle back exhaust that had oem fitment.

I should probably clarify that the rc only had one primary cat and what is the "cat back" referred to in your diagram is what my "axle" back is

Perfect! I'm hoping I have more luck getting the an axle back shipped.
