Hmmm sounds louder than mine, same tone just louder. What size magnaflow canister? Mine is 5x8x18. Yours sounds good

I run the FM (Fidanza) flywheel.

Sounds pretty good man. Driving in the DC area must suck. I'm glad I live 5 minutes away from back country roads.

Very deep, sounds serious. Sounds similar to my BEGi SS downpipe and Enthuza 2.5" exhaust. My IHI hisses less.

I have the 14-lb FM flywheel (latest offering, actually an ACT Streetlite). Can't be lazy shifting or you'll buck like whoa. Take-offs don't feel any different from the stock 18-lb wheel.

when i had my wastegate wired open after putting the exhaust on. It was pretty insane. I would not like it everyday. I tried everything possible to keep the vaccum high while driving.

I'll have to pickup one of those mounts myself. I bought a more universal mount from filmtools.com

http://www.filmtools.com/gripsuccupca.html

Has a 6" Vacuum cup thats held to about 150mph but is only steady if the surface its on is stout. Our little door panels aren't strong enough to support the mount and a 2 pound camera to get quality video. :(
