For the record my Raceland downpipe was $179 and this catback was $275. So that makes my complete TBE for only $454.00

That's by far the cheapest price for a TBE aftermarket setup. Did you get the exhaust installed? ?

I too have the Raceland so very curious to see how you like the eBay cbe!!!

I'm guessing it will be loud

Those prices are for parts only. Shop install pricing varies-

Not as loud as a straight pipe.. I took the GTI for a drive around the block awhile back without the stock catback installed... now THAT was loud...

The Raceland DP with the stock CBE actually sounds pretty decent. I've been pretty happy with that setup for over a year now

My dp came loose once and it was horribly loud!!!

The Raceland with stock cbe is not bad but I want a little more growl.

Weather has been super crappy. Been raining or snowing around the clock. As soon as it clears up, I'll try and snap a couple pics with a video.

I actually might give this a try -- as soon as I can get it up on a lift

Dam! looks good. OP, kudos for taking the chance. Whenever the time comes post some fitted pics and a sound vid.

I was concerned because we get plenty of snow ice salt mix here. If you put a soundclip up and I like it I will also be buying one
