most people start off with race and header and end up buying stealth

My neighbor is "that guy" with the loud as shiat exhaust on his STi, so I don't give two hoots about making too much noise.

And then just adding a muffler to your oem exhaust is the least costliest.
Isn't 2.5" a little much if you don't intend to turbo (keep it NA)? And what did you end up running? I thought I read it in another thread you have a stealth on top of a Borla system? I am curious as heck as to what you are running...

If your going w/ a exhaust system get a 2.5'' mandrell bent system. I have added a Fwerks header & stealth muffler to my Borla system. I installed the header/flex & stealth & removed the Borla muffler, but left the Borla resonator next to the fuel tank. It had awesome deep tone, but was pretty loud, so I installed my Borla muffler behind the stealth & it all fits to.

Any tips and tricks for installing the FSWerks header and flex pipe onto the FSWerks race exhaust? Should be ordering Monday evening.

I used my original manifold gasket, & I oblonged the block to manifold bracket on the header side. Just slot the two holes on the header side. This bracket makes the header soild. I also used part of the insulation off the manifold to cover the alt. from heat. I'd for sure add a stealth muffler to your order too.

Meh, not worried about it being loud. Loud around here is straight pipe pick-up trucks (I was once in that crowd) and some of the ricers. Thanks for the tips though.
