Yup. I'll be calling them on monday again...

there is an even newer one out now... would be nice if it was a TSB..

OK Finally shot some quick video of the 2.5" straight through mufflers.

Like I said before they are LOUD probably too loud.

If I was 27 I'd leav'em... but at 37.... not so much.

Here's some pics and vids showing the difference.


The 3" Chambered I originally had on the car.



Exhaust clip.



Take off and Fly By.



The 2.5" Straight Through I just put on.





They sound great but with 25 mile highway trip every day... that drone is brutal..

But they sound BAD @$$

I say go back to the first one. I guess I'm too old.

I have the Borla Touring and it's just right. So that gives you some perspective.

Loud is one thing, drone, something completely different.... I was going to have the Helmholtz chambers done, but my builder said to wait as I am getting a magna flow three inch system and the turbos will slice and dice the sound waves into a thousand bits of noise and will pretty much eliminate any drone..

I hear ya. And all I can say is I've had one of my 3" slide off the x pipe and it was loud.

These 2.5" are that loud... the video doesn't really translate the volume...

I'll drive it for another week.

Loud is a relative term. You mean you have to use headsets to talk to your passengers?

Well when my son yells at me, "Daddy it's too loooouuuuud."



Ironically My wife loves it... but when she drives she never really puts her foot in it...

I'm sure if she rode with me she'd say the same thing....
