Dang it is mean sounding.

Well I broke down after Jerry brought his car by with his Borla exhaust and it sounded meaner than my car with the GMPP exhaust. I had the resonator taken out of the car and am driving it around to see how I like it. She does sound mean. Have not noticed any bad effect of the AFM sound yet. Actually so far I have less rear view vibration going on when the AFM kicks in.

Now of coarse when it is up in the air they point out how the bottom of my engine is covered in oil. Oil cooler gaskets are leaking. Dealer says it is not to bad and ordered the parts and said to keep driving it. I did not notice any oil on the ground so it must be the highway travel thowing it around.

I put on a Halltech CAI, makes it sound even meaner now.

S-type sounds great, although if you want mean, I have yet to hear a more angry/aggressive sounding exhaust than JBA. It even puts the ATAK to shame. =P

I didn't want something that was too loud or too mean. I just wanted a deep rumble that made it sound meaner. S Type was perfect for that.

Same here, exactly what I want out of an exhaust. But after hearing the ATAK exhaust where they compared all 3 Borla's (touring, s-type, ATAK) I'm having a tough decision between the S-type and ATAK I know the atak is louder but it had the "right" kind of loud imo thunderous! lol
