it's dark and hard to see, but the tradeoff was to use a shorter muffler... and I'm not sure shorter is going to cut the drone on the freeway. as it is now, this one doesn't have ANY drone during cruise. It's a magnaflow 14589. And I love it.

Sadly though nobody at the dyno day got sound / video clips of my car... DID THEY?

I have the 5x8x18 magnaflow on my car, easier to fit than yours (I tried it) and fortunately i have zero drone as well. Could be the two turbos though, I had to use a huge resonator with the flowmaster and the GReddy turbo back in the day.

Not that it's worth changing if you love the one you have.

I will look thru my videos of the dyno day for ya.

I meant price. It would be $450 for an catless 3 incher for an NB? Same price as the NA 3 inch?

I don't care really which can you use. I like most Magnaflows but as long as it sounds good, I don't care if it's an ebay special.

I had one of my customers with the new 3" call me this evening and said everything fit with plenty of room spare. I was nervious it might be too close to the tow hook under the car. Jason
