I just realized that the "ebay special" is missing the hangar on the left exhaust tip!

I noticed the same thing. The other seller I just pointed out doesn't have *that* issue...

For what it's worth i have godspeed intercooler and down pipe, both work fine. Having said that i wouldn't be bothered at all with that cat back. If it's to loud then have a resonator installed.

I'm waiting for fanboys to come talking trash in this thread. We all know the type....bitching because the exhaust system doesn't cost the same as a house mortgage payment. Haha

I thought the same thing. Hence my immediate disclaimer on the first post...

Yeah...don't worry about it...I just picked this up for my Cayman. Great reviews and $275 shipped....As opposed to the $1400-2000 for the big name brands...

Don't sweat it. If it works for you and sounds great, you can laugh all the way to the bank..

FWIW, My Godspeed Intercooler has been awesome at <50% of the competition..

We need to get a tester on this. 500 bucks for something as basic as a magnaflow cube is a rip-off.

Did you order the generic one or a GSP? Can't wait to hear your review on it. After this weekend, i will be coming across some "dinero" so an exhaust system might be in the works.
