NOPI Header+Bosal Flex+Bosal Catback=LOUD + vid/sound clip

Damn, just installed my NOPI Header, Bosal Flex and Bosal Catback and it is LOUD. I love the sound, but damn, I'm glad I bought the silencer for the exhaust. I think I'm going to piss my neighbors off for a few days, then put the silencer in. I'm not bitching, I love the extra power. I just thought I would warn anyone looking at a similar setup to be prepared for some serious volume at WOT.

Ok, here is my setup without the silencer (sorry about the poor quality, I had to use my phone)[IMG][/IMG]

Ya, I don't like the loudness, guess I'm too old. But I DO like a free flowing system, so.. don't know what to do.

If you're considering a similar setup, you can always weld in an extra resonator, that should take care of the loudness at WOT, I'm probably going to have to do that when I install a PWSC, but, so you know what it sounds like on an NA setup, I'm going to try and take sound/video clips later today with and without my silencer installed, I have meetings all day today, but I should be able to get the videos posted this evening, or tomorrow at the latest

Glad to see you finally got the exhaust installed. I told you it was going to be loud!! But I bet the car runs so much smoother though. Anyway, you gotta post some pics of it!
