is this the entire catback kit or just the axle back?

i would think that if it the catback then the axle back should be a little quieter and less drone

Yeah, this is the 'aggressive' borla system (PN 140280). No plans for headers just yet. Maybe after I recuperate financially from purchasing the exhaust...

Well let me say it was well worth the money it seems. Did you have any pictures of it?

Still not as nice as the Corsas to me, but it's just a video and there's also a LOT of ambient noise being recorded along with it. Sure it sounds much better in person, but for a whole catback system $1500 isn't bad. Of course, I say that comparatively, $1500 for a headerback system would be criminal to me, but that's what they cost for these cars...

Thanks
The tips are slightly larger than oem due to the thicker rolled edge. I think they were about 4.25". The car looks much cleaner now that you don't see the bottoms of the stock cans hanging below the facia.

We tried to find a quieter spot for the video but unfortunately ended up behind my fiances work where the plant ventilation is quite noisy.

Wow that sounds great. I can imagine how it would sound with headers too.

Actually, I believe if you go with the lt headers with X pipe, it would eliminate alot of that drone..
