Well your 2.0L probably put somewhere just south of 120HP to the wheels.

Your current setup should be in the 150's or close to that
Check the dyno thread for similar setups

this is way to loud for my taste I need to add something to quiet it down. headers I thought were going to increase the sound a little, this thing sounds like I am gang raping a pig when on full throttle

well its quiet during idle, and cruise, so maybe just a resinator?
Looking at my system I dunno where I would even add a muffler or resinator


talked to tom he suggested a High flow Cat since I have none and it might work

MagnaFlow Spun Metallic High-Flow Catalytic Converter

Here is a youtube clip of the header, I will make a better one later...

Mine's loud around 3k under load on the interstate. It was stupid loud when I first put it on and only had 1 muffler. It sounded like it was coming straight off the header. Even at idle.
