updating my original post with this now. DT shorties installed.


it definitely gave it a more distinct/deeper sound than before. I am not sure how much you can tell from the videos, but it sounds way different from before. I think it is a tiny bit louder and a good amount deeper with a more throaty tone now. This is what I am aiming for (besides a really v8 monsterous sound). I wonder if there is anything else I could do to make it deeper.

I dont know whether to get high flow cats or maybe even delete the resonators. I dont mind going louder, I just was the deepest sound v6 I can get without any (more) rasp. I think I am close or maybe even at it...

well, I wanted to go the turbo route eventually and you cant have longtubes with it so that was the main reason why I went with these. These were also 300 bucks compared to the 900? + 300 to install?

The longtubes would sound like absolute crap with my setup. Kids have tried and then went with the magnaflow xpipe afterward because of how bad it was. I like being kinda different too. I think I am the only person who has the loud mouth 1 and shorties. I strongly recommend these.

I might go the supercharged route now since the installing the turbo would take Rx a couple of weeks, which I cant do. People said installing the IPF supercharger is easy enough to do myself, so I might go with them. who knows...

If you decide to go the IPF route or just want to see the install manual let me know. I have a copy of it I can email you if you'd like. I know the rx kits are taking quite a while to get put out. If you don't have another car, like myself, you're kind of out of luck It sucks but oh well.

I pulled the trigger on the ported throttle body and the magnaflow resonated x pipe yesterday. There is just too much rasp with this setup. It sounds awesome down low though.
