    No, if I do get the extreme tailpiece I would keep the muffled version in case I got sent to the ref for exhaust dB. Thanks though.

I v-banded the stock muffler so I can remove it and insert this pipe in its place. It saves 23 lbs, it looks ugly as hell, but sounds pretty damn good.

    After spending some more windshield time with the ETS non-extreme dual resonated, I'm not going to order the extreme tailpiece and swap it. If it were any louder it would just screw up my audio system performance.

    I just put on the MBRP exhaust last night. Here's some videos, pics, and first impressions.

    This is what it comes with. There is an in depth install video on Youtube so I'll just leave it at that.

    To save money I ordered the aluminized version and painted it. I live in the desert so I'm not too concerned about corrosion, and when the time comes to replace it I will hopefully have my wife convinced on allowing me to spend more money



    There is the stock exhaust.



    And there is the MBRP cat-back on the same exact road. I'll try and get a better daytime video later.

    Anyways, here are my impressions of the exhaust:

    It's heavy! With the packaging and hardware it was about 56 lbs, and since it was just a box and some foam I assume it weighs a little more than stock. The welds look good and everything was in great shape. All the piping fit together perfectly and the clamps are easy to use. The instructions are pretty good, and paired with any sort of knowledge about cars you will have no problem putting it in. Everything is either 15mm or 14mm except the stock Vband, which IIRC is 16mm, and the exhaust tips which you will need a large hex wrench for (I can't remember the size, maybe 10mm). Aside from the painting it took me about an hour and a half to install alone, on the floor of my garage, with the back of the car on ramps. Since there are so many pieces it takes a bit longer to align everything, but it was still pretty easy.

    Cold starts are much louder and have more bass. You can hear the whistle of the turbo a bit better too, and after about ten seconds idle sounds a lot like a rotary until it warms up and settles down to warm idle. On acceleration or deceleration it is quite a bit louder than stock, and it has a drone around 3,000rpm. When cruising it is pretty quiet, inside the cabin it's deeper and more noticeable than stock, but I doubt it's too much louder. It drones when going up or down hills in the 3,000RPM range, which unfortunately is 70-80mph. But it's not terrible and on flat ground it quiets down to a dull hum. At full throttle in the car it loses some of the bass but is louder than stock. Obviously I haven't heard it from the outside but I assume it's much louder.

    Overall I think it's a great bang for the buck.

    Now that I just read this very good review of the MBRP exhaust I realized I lied when I was bragging about how little my track pipe cost me to make... I did have to spend $100 to buy the MBRP active exhaust plug that tricks the computer into believing the flap still exists. So it wasn't that cheap. I have to assume the profit margin on that piece must be like 500%. Anyway, the MBRP system seems like a great deal for $600.

    The aluminized version that I got was $450.
