Trubendz exhaust system 2.5 aluminumized exhaust system next friday since they are only in Miami I'll drive to get it. I already have to go to doors international to get some glass doors for a client anyway. That saves me 30$ in shipping LOL!

Thats great. What muffler/ resonator are you going to run?

Magnaflow no resonator

Just got mine in the mail today! Trubendz aluminized with Borla! Install tomorrow if it's not snowing!

Are you running a resonator or muffler only post a vid there aren't that many good vids on YouTube

The kit was $275 and is 2.5" cat back, I believe. I probably will not get a sound clip though. To be honest, I really don't care to spend the time to figure out how to post it and I don't spend much time on the internet to begin with lol. I'll let oy know how it is when I'm done though.

I enjoyed the Trubendz at first but had a couple issues with it. The first being it didn't fit well at all. The tailpipe rubbed against the bumper cover and the bend that goes around the spare tire well wasn't correct and it vibrated against the car. I ended up having an exhaust shop fix it and weld it all together.

If you plan on going with a header as well I would strongly suggest the resonator as well. I enjoyed the sound before I got a header but after it was way too loud. I ended up putting a high flow cat and resonator downstream to get it to where I wanted it.

i am running the same system on my car... first off it was 2 shorts and the end of the tail pipe was 4 inches behind the bumper... and the drone was terrible and it had some rubbing... after i got all this fixed it was great... added a 6x30 magnaflow round muffler and added a section of pipe to put the tip past the bumper... right now the second winter is doing some harm on the end of the tip with some rust... looking at switching it out to something new

So after wrestling with the new exhaust for 2 hours it finally went on. I was a major PITA and my entire body is sore from trying to contort the exhaust into place. The Borla muffler does not really fit (too wide) and the tip sticks out too far as previously stated. I'll probably take it to a shop and have them fix the tip.

I would reccomend having a shop install the system. The price is right and the sound is not obnoxious and it is mandrel bent (most shops can't do mandrel bent) and I think the car runs considerably lower RPM's on the road so I'm excited to see if my mileage improved.
