If I didn't want a catback with the dual canisters (mufflers) so bad, I'd get this one.

So I want to know, with an aftermarket downpipe (in my case 42DD w/ cat) how loud is this? I'm looking to stay away from too much drone and considering speedy racer.

Iif you dont have res on your DP you will get some drone on the highway. Its loud when you WOT, and cold start. City driving is not bad.

Does anyone have any experience with both the Speedyracer and the Beluga? Both of these threads are super helpful separately, but I'm having trouble deciding between the two. Was on a little financial hiatus after buying an engagement ring, now I'm back in the market for a budget exhaust. From what I've gathered the quality, fit, finish, sound, price, etc are all up to par with both of these. I have no preference with the cannister or Y piped looks. Seems like Speedyracer might be a bit louder with a little drone possible?

Bumping a dead thread. Picked up one off Ebay from speedyracer for $199 shipped. Going to be mating up to an APR downpipe. Hopefully not too loud. But for half the price of a dual canister setup, worth trying!

Godspeed/eBay Catback Exhaust

Exhaust showed up over the weekend, but new coupler isnít here yet. Should I have ordered more than one of the clamps? Mine came in 3 pieces. Muffler section, y portion with one exhaust tip, and other exhaust tip slips onto the y portion

just that one clamp is fine.

If you don't want to use a ziptie, order this to keep the rear section from moving.

Install was attempted last night with 2 buddies (there for moral support)

Stupid me did not dry fit first before trying to put on the car. Turns out one of the slip joint ends got damaged in shipping and one of the "slip" fits was no longer round and had a flat spot and ovaled. I didn't catch it within the window to file a claim with the shipping company, so the reear portion of the exhaust didn't slide all the way together.

Temp fixed it with some exhaust tape and then clamped. I'll end up having to take it to a shop to have them properly fix it.

Sound is PERFECT! Not loud enough to bother the neighbors but enough to know it's not stock anymore. (however i REALLY liked the sound it makes with open downpipe. . . . . has me looking into getting an exhaust cutout for giggles)

I ordered the split ring varient from ebay, but wasn't able to use them as i'd have to cut the ends off the hangers for it to clear. Should have ordered the half circles

The split collar ring is much better than your typical ziptie. When I had that exhaust system, it would shift a bit after driving and bug the shit out of me (prior to the S/C ring addition).
