vrsf downpipes on! (videos inside)

Finally finished installing my VRSF downpipes today. Install was somewhat difficult but nothing ridiculous. I did however snap one of the clamps that hold the downpipes to the turbo in half. I would recommend spraying these with PB Blaster before removal to avoid damage.

The pipes are coupled with Top Speed exhaust (eBay brand). I was expecting it to be much raspier and not too pleasant but it has a nice tone too it. I may even swap out the mufflers for something nicer.

Let me know what you guys think. This setup for full exhaust ran me about $700.




In the video it sounds like theres a rattle, but it's really just the crappy microphone on my camera.



First gear and a little bit of second with DTC on.



Messing around under a bridge (sounds SUPER loud haha)

Sounds good. I had the VRSF DPs on for a few weeks now. Yours doesnt sound nearly as raspy as mine. I have a turner motorsports catback. But I like the sound. Congrats on the DPs. Your car sounds awsome.

top speed is a good company and do alot for the car community in the DFW in which they are based. They have affordable exhausts but also have a legitimate shop instead of being just an 'ebay' company

Noticeable but not to an extreme. It really doesn't sound much different than with the exhaust by itself, just more turbo whine really.
