Is it really that bad? I've just heard idle and small rev and I liked it, I haven't heard much about highway driving it

It doesn't drone. Lol I had it on my turbo set up for a bit. It's just built like **** that's all. Bought mine new from Jason and I never could get it to fit quite right.

Honestly the few kits I have personally seen from Enthuza have never had the greatest fitment. I know my 3" stainless hit at the 2 part axle flange.

Well I had one but it droned at highway speeds & certain occasions, my overall issue with it was getting pulled over frequently in the valley. I live in Cali so every cop usually wanted to give me a fix it for the muffler.

My fitment was awful. It would bang on the half shafts so I had to get a longer rubber hanger only for it to bang on the rear chassis brace. Then I had to buy a u bolt cause the metal clamp thing he sent wouldn't seal for crap. Then after a couple days I had cracks and leaks around the hangers cause the metal is so thin. Now it just sits in my garage. Don't know what I'll ever do with it

Huh? I've got Enthuza's on both cars (in 2.5"). They fit really well and I've never had an issue with the slip joint. ???

Maybe I just got a bad exhaust. Was yours the XR? It is made of thinner material

2.5" is much easier to fit then 3". After clamping my slip joint together, I have never been able to get the pipes apart again.

No. One car has the NA Racer with Magnaflow resonator and muffler (R-Speed I think) and the other has the turbo exhaust with only the Borla muffler.

As tight as the 2.5" is, can't imagine the 3". BTW, I use high-temp anti-seize on my slip joint to help me get it apart later. Haven't had an issue getting it off and on. Hmmmm . . . that sounded dirty.

FWIW I have a 3" budget turbo exhaust and had it crack @ the hanger. This is also a $350 aluminized exhaust that was improperly mounted to the cat pipe for quite a while... and survived a few winters in CT outside. I can't complain too much. Fitment has been "OKAY" Assuming I take the time to adjust the FM downpipe & Enthuza exhaust to get it tucked up correctly.
