Just make sure you can get the car high enough i cut after the car and right after the the subframe and had trouble wiggling it out and getting the new peice in a lift will make it so much easyer and i recomend it if you can swing it. You can do it on jackstands but id had to have em maxed out high and it wasnt so safe doing that

Also when i made a test pipe for the magnaflow exhaust o didnt gain a whole lot of power but it reved smoother less restrictive not as big a gain as my old 05 but a gain to warrant it none the less.

Do you mind sharing what your 'reasonable price' was?

I had the exhaust installed the other day, and initial thoughts were it wasn't all that loud. It gave the car a nice deep tone, but it's not as loud as you might expect, or I'd hoped. I had the back seat down in my sedan, and I guess that affects noise considerably, since after putting it back up yesterday, its quieter. I guess with a hatchback it would sound a little better on the inside, which is kind of what I was hoping for.

AutoAnything sells the hatchback catback exhaust for about 560 with free shipping if you've never ordered anything from there before via the new customer code. The sedan one is more expensive though.

I was actually going to go with the hatchback version from a sponsor deal on another forum (it was $470) but it sold before I made a decision.

I am curious as to how it would sound without the resonator...
