Just for those people who think that MBRP is loud, I don't think it is! It has a nice little rumble when downshifting! But I have gotten a lot of compliments on my exhaust! I have a new MBRP, I guess they are gen 2!

As far as I know yeah it should bolt right up...but keep in mind that the stock flexpipe is only 1 7/8" I.D. so if you just bolt on the cat back there is room for improvement later, and while high flow cats are on the exspensive side...you should see powergains by adding one

I have had the Borla 2.25 on the wagon for over 5 years and like both the sound and performance change. It was a fairly easy install (after cutting off the old pipes.) The system has held up well and has over 100,000 miles on it now.
The Borla system has a deep sound.
