Why did you go with the Magnaflow over the Silverline? My Silverline is not loud at all, mabye as loud as a stock STI.

I am sorry I broke your coupler. I blame it on u leaving early and not helping me finish my turbo. But the gods have humor and I am driving around shooting air out my turbo jsut like you.

Is the coupler a angled coupler? if not then a peice of radiator hose should get you back on the raod. +1 on the sound clips beigna major requirement.

no it's a 90*, otherwise it would be fixed already. I'm running it as is untill the replacement arrives, no biggie. My drive isn't far to work and I'm running a map sensor so the biggest worry is running unfilter air, which i dont really care about.

I had Jason weld up the same thing for me, but in a 2.5"-3" transition instead. So our exhausts are nearly identical but I didn't specify the magnaflow can.

watch laying into the throttle, you can overspin the turbo since it will never see high enough to open the wastegate, better off if you're gonna drive it open the wastegate somehow
