trubendz 3 inch exhaust?

needs some opinions, had my heart set on the hks hi power catback exhaust, changed my mind i think now. interested in the SS 3 inch exhaust form trubendz but not sure which muffler choice to get. thinking the magnaflow, since they say its the loudest but still want a somewhat deep rumble. anyone using any 3 inch piping trubendz stuff? i kno i dont need 3 inch cause its not turbod or supercharged but why not get that exhaust now so when i do, im all set?

b16sir1991 sold his lately. he like it, but it was really loud. he had the magnaflow muffler and silencer. he then installed a second silence. still too loud. he now has a FRPP Borla setup.

go with the HKS, there arent enough of them here

i do say, the FRPP Borla w/ORP sounds like sex!

if you are CERTAIN you are going FI'd, get the 3"

I have the Trubendz Cat-Back exhaust and I love it. It is not too loud and sounds great. I don't even have any other mods like headers or an intake yet but it sure does sound like I do. Also, I have the 2.5 inch one. I would go wit that one if I were u

I dont care what some people on here say... I KNOW you will make more power with 3" exhaust even on an NA car.... I've see several dynos backing that up as well.

Isn't it available with a Borla muffler as an option?

You might as well get the 3" flex section too.

ORP = Off Road Pipe

It replaces the catalytic convertor.

You've got the FRPP Borla w/ORP? sound clip?

I've got the stock SVT exhaust with an ORP, and the 2500-2900 rasp is killing me. Its really a bit too loud all over, actually. Did the catback make yours quieter, or did you get the ORP after the Borla?

I'm leaning towards the Trubendz 2.5" SS Borla, and gonna get the extra resonator from them for $60 probably (supposed to make it quieter).

Thoughts? Sound clips?
