Default Installed Enthuza and Godspeed Radiator.

ENTHUZA IS THA BOMB! PERFECT AND CLEAN!

The 3" Enthuza was a perfect fit. It didn't even hit the aftermarket rear brace!
But I still need a test pipe.

I'm ordering a enthuza test pipe to go from 2 1/2" to 3".

For a extra $60 I can add a 12" resonator to it.

1. Do you think the reasonator is worth the extra cost? Do you think it will quieten it much?

Radiator
Godspeed radiator was a nice piece. Yea, some of the rad finished was tarnished. But Mother's polish is taking care of that. And I had to bend 1in. the rail at one spot for the bracket to flushly mount. That took 2 seconds. Once a buddy came over it tooka all of 5 mins to install.

It did fit THOUGH! I can't wait to order the testpipe and get the car on the road.

I'll try to find the camera to get some pictures.

Depends on how picky you are about exhaust noise. Id probably skip the resonator just to hide some of the rattles and squeeks my car makes. It probably would only reduce the noise by maybe 10% though, so not a huge deal.

It will for sure. Turbos make a wonderful muffler, which is why all cars should have them installed... well, maybe not. Wouldnt want everyone out there having fun.

I would rather have the resonator myself. I'll second Jason's quality work; it's pretty damn nice.

I have a resonator on mine.... But i installed a slightly smaller muffler on mine after it got bent when i ran backwards into a pole. It was my mistake by picking the wrong muffler, otherwise it was fine out of the box.

No ****. I knew they were "loud" but I didnt realise THAT loud. I retract my statement about not needing a resonator now.
