I finished my install on the ebay catback i linked. The fitment was great. Bolted right up.

Great deep sound, hardly louder then stock.

My only gripe was that the tip stuck out past the bumper a bit too far for my liking.

Nothing 5 minutes with a tig couldnt fix though.

Are you positive that's stainless and not aluminized? If it is stainless, then the price of that is worth it just for the piping alone. I'd be curious to see what this system looks like in a year or so.

Absolutely. Now the grade of stainless is hard to determine but it welded up nicely like a high grade would.

My thoughts exactly. Only time will tell there.

But shoot, some people charge almost what i paid for the entire catback shipped to my door, for shipping alone.

Bolted up nicely, i heat cycled it a few times to ensure a proper seal at each joint. The sound is absolutely perfect. Its dead quiet at cruising speeds, no drone on normal acceleration, and has a nice deep idle. Its exactly what i want in a catback for a n/a 4cyl. Plus its a true 2.5" throughout so i have some room to grow.

I shortened the end section by 2.5 inches but that was purely personal preference.

I personally just had this arrive today matter of fact.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/00-01-02-03-...3be29f&vxp=mtr

I could take some pictures for you. But 2.5" ss, mandrel bent, all tig welded, with hangers and hardware for $100 to my door. With a resonator, full muffler, and chrome tip i might add.

I run and have run the megan 3" turbo back exhaust on 3 dsm's now. Have one on there currently. Most popular exhaust on dsm's across the country. People putting down serious power. They will all tell you the same thing. A pipe is a pipe, same goes for the cai's too. $300 aem intakes, ebay sells the same exact thing for $40.

Use the $300 you'll save for mods that matter.
Pics of this please

Ok here are a few pics and an idle clip. I haven't had a chance to take any pics underneath yet.






Sorry about the wind noise, it was the best i could do to block the wind.

Idle: CLICKY
