Anyone?


I have a silver Coupe just itching for that sound...

Any chance that you could post a pic of the underside Install, specifically around where the stock muffler went?

I will as soon as I can get under the car. I had surgery last week so I won't be able to move much.

Thanks,


Also, could you clarify the part number or tell me how long the can is, as I can't find part number 11370 in their pages...

It sounds great. I'd imagine it would only sound better on a 3.0. Anyone know where a sound clip is?

thinking seriously about doing this type of install myself... except i plan on using the 3" double-walled tips on magnaflow's site.

i'd really be interested in getting an under body shot of the setup as well.. i'm kind of confused by your sketch with that trapezoidal thing you have drawn. is that part of the stock system??

also a sound clip from the inside of the car would be great as well. i know you said that it doesn't drone, but does this still hold true after the break-in??

i had a magnaflow cat-back on my golf that sounded awesome, but it droned like a mo-fo and was loud enough that listening to the radio cruising at 70mph was difficult... and i just don't want that same problem with this setup.

any help would be great. i'm looking to get some kind of exhaust system for my car pretty soon here...

I will try today and post a clip from the inside. It much louder than normal but I like it. As far as for the trapezoidal thing, that is part of the stock setup. I didn't change that.

i'm so on the fence about this setup... i've "almost" bought it 3-4 times, but i can't decide if its too loud or not. at the moment i'm searching for some "low profile" resonators that i can put mid-pipe if i do this setup and it ends up rattling my teeth out.

anxious to hear how yours sounds.

$188! Dang. I just paid like $100 for my sound generator about a month ago. Would have definitely shelled out an extra $88 for a real exhaust setup.

Can't see the video from work, but will give it a listen when I get home. So far the overall concensus appears to be positive remarks
