Well, guess the next most important thing to ask. Is it quiet enough for you?

no. but it's liveable. I trust with a resonator and a cat it'd be fine. I'm also used to it not making any noise at all. Cruise is nothing, up hills could be a tad quiter, but the growl it makes when WOT is toally badass.

sad thing is i was peaking something like 17psi with the same tune (was topping out at 13.8psi before) and i blew a coupler and it killed it, so technically im N/A for a few days (2" 90*) which totally sucks *****. what can ya do?!

+1 pics. how does one "add" a resonator after the exhaust is installed, you have a straight pipe for the cat and another straight pipe for the resonator?

There is no resonator, drop off car at exhaust shop, they take their magic wand to it, voila, you have a res welded in.

My 6" tip makes twice as much power as your 3" exhaust.

*edit* because it's bigger *edit*

got any scrap pieces left over that I can use between my turbo inlet and air filter? Like maybe a 45* or a 90*?

Pretty sure it's an Enthuza built piece, he just had him use the Magnaflow muffler instead.
