I wouldn't kick it out of bed. Looks like it came out great!

Thanks. I am happy with it. The only screw up is that I managed to gall the threads on the rear V-band clamp and now cant get it off or tightened. I think I am going to have to cut it off and replace the clamp.

The Tim Taylor in me wants more noise, but it sounds so good and is much better suited for my slightly more mature taste. Loud isn't as much fun as it was 10 years ago. The realy loud exhaust I had on there NA was getting old.

Nice! That's a little easier with the 18" muffler. That 22" has to be shoe horned in there to avoid interferences when you rotate it that way. I need to get some installed pics already. I was thinking about getting an 18" or smaller muffler for track and based on your pics it would be easy as pie to fit. How loud is that 18" muffler?

Very nice work. I just ordered a 5x8x18 the other day to start piecing together a 3" system with a cat and bullet muffler.

I may have chosen the 5x11x22 if I had seen how you managed to fit it without snaking the pipes all around, but if the 22 is as quiet as it seems, the 18 with the cat and bullet can't be too loud.

I finally remembered to take some pictures of the exhaust while having the car on the lift. It doesn't look as pretty as it used to, but still works great!

Nah, it was recorded from my phone and sounds louder than what it actually is.

There's nothing impressive about fitting that muffler between the rear bumper and subframe. Did you bring it home in your pocket?

Who said it was impressive? I was just showing it as other people do with there own stuff. Whether you like it or not makes me no difference. The Muffler didn't cost anything as it has been sitting on my shelf for 2-3 years. It was time for an upgrade because i was 3" from the turbo to the middle of the car, where it bottle necked into 2 1/4. <---- At the time i just made do with what i had when i Boosted the car. Yes the muffler is small, But its fine for now in my Opinion. The right muffler, Probably not but its better than nothing.

It's not that loud. Quieter than my Enthuza, enormous Magnaflow or not. I can carry on a conversation with him on the phone in his car.

I can't even hear my phone ring in my car with its huge Magnaflow.

You might have missed the part about the 12578.
