maybe 1 hp lol

if you car is faster by anychance....its because your saving weight.

600 dollars hahaha. You can get a muffler delete, a resonator, and new tips for less then HALF the price. a muffler shop can custom fabricate a cat-back system for that price.
or just get the AA tune instead for $500 and you'll actually make 10-15+ more hp. I'd rather have that than more noise.

I think AA claims about 4-5 hp gain in the development stage, which is not bad for a system like this.

You will get more hp gain if you do 2nd cat delete or even primary cat delete.

Thanks for the responses guys. I am probably not going to do a muffler delete due to the fact that I dont really like the extremely deep hum that comes with a delete. Too muscle car sounding for me haha.

I'll look into the AA tune in the future. The next thing im going to do is to get my windows tinted!

a muffler delete will run you about $150-$200 and sounds as good (if not better) than most exhausts and will likely have a better hp gain

i've done it on my 328 and 335 and it sounds so good i probably wouldn't spend the money on an exhaust unless i was getting an m car
