I think it looks great. The original doesn't bother me enough to go through the hassle of changing it though.

That looks great! Did you cut out the muffler completely? If not what did you replace it with?

The car has two mufflers and a resonator

The lunch box was the second muffler leaving these

Sounds good, will try and get a video soon.

Since all I did was cut the lunch box off no hp increase but a good sound. I'm still going to get the fswerks exhaust when it comes out

Congratz! I really wanna know how this sounds. How much you can hear it on the inside of the car and about how much did this cost you if you don't mind me asking?

LOOKS GREAT! Major props man!!! I was seriously considering this myself since the rest looks to be straight through. Was curious though, is that the cat that looks all trapezoid shape? Or don't we need cats anymore because of the variable cams? And the exhaust appears to be stainless from what I can tell too. So besides a half inch in diameter, you're pretty much at a cat back system now eh? Either way looks great! Bet it sounds great too!

Oh, looks like you cut your bumper to fit the tips straight. Or is it just a shadow?
