DOWNPIPES AND COLDSTARTS

I'm not sure about the resonator delete.

Heard mixed reviews

"sounds the same but louder" or "makes it sound like a toy"

Reasons why I havent done it yet ^^^

I'm also debating getting the ECS downpipe, under $500 with a cat seems great. I also looked at the ARM but don't want to have to deal with it being too short, or trying to fit it to my Neuspeed catback.

Well just ordered one so I'll see how this goes. I'll try and give some feedback since there doesn't seem to be much out there once I put it on closer to Christmas

Yep it was finally delivered. Been on vacation but heading back today. I can get some pictures if you want and probably will end up installing it towards the end of this week if you want some feedback

Anything/Everything will sound bad to some and anything/everything will sound good to some. Whats important is that you like the tone it makes and screw anyone else(unless its totally obnoxious with like freight train whistles and stuff)

Finally got it installed after a huge pain. Classic downpipe install, 2 hours for the inner upper turbo flange nut and 30-45 mins for everything else.

Sounds fantastic with the neuspeed catback I have on. Not crazy loud, but tons of gurgles. Kit was great, came with everything needed to install. Havenít gotten a cel light yet since Iím stock tune, but expecting one and waiting on a O2 spacer to try and get rid of it.
