I have the 44 series on my cougar with no cats, I love it. My friend put the same on his 08 Scion xB and it sounds pretty good actually. I can't stand the tinny weed whacker sound that comes out of most 4 cylinders with exhausts. Even the borla on the SVT I don't like.

I have a SVT turbo with a 2.5" stainless trubends with a magnaflow and stock cat and it is QUIET (no resinator). It is a bit louder than the stock, but it has a lower more distinctive sound. I didn't want something too loud and this is almost perfect...could be just a tiny bit louder, but still sounds great. A 3" with a turbo and no cat would probably be a real nice sound. A resinator could be added if it is too loud..

Nuff said. My trubendz couldn't be connected with clamps cus the pipes would not slip into one another. Brought to exhaust shop to install and turns out exhaust too short to connect with clamps, so I had to have it welded. Exhaust tip sticks out way too far. Mine sounds good but that's about it. The fitment is soo bad it rattles off the car. This is a real piece. Never again.

Trubends never gave me a problem when I purchased it and had a muffler shop install it. I bought the piping and the exhaust shop installed mufflers, hangers and welded it all together for under $100 IIRC.

So, I know this kinda died but I'm still debating about 2.5 FSWERKS Stealth, 3" Trubendz Borla or Flowmasters. I recently got a ticket for the loud of an ehaust with HFC and Lunch box delete. EVeryone says Borla is quiet, how QUIET is Quiet?

borla is louder then stock quieter then the other options you list, I have a 3 trubendz with 2 borla mufflers and HFC on my track car and it found it to be pretty loud, but it not a dally driver so it not such a big deal.

The helmet has a special meaning for many drivers. How important is it to you? - It protects my head.

Do you have any special rituals when the helmet is concerned like many have? - I wipe it so that I can see better.
