Trying to keep it. I have to go pick mine up soon. It's nice to be able to go completley back to stock it you end up selling the car. That way you can part out your mods and get back some of the modification $. The problem with the stock exhaust is that it is a pig and comes in a single piece, so you have to have room for it, and need a truck if you want to keep it in a single piece.

Ugh. I was thinking of getting a new exhaust system but I don't have much garage space. This seems a bit of a hassle.

Sounds really good and not too loud. I think this may be what I end up getting.

Is it necessary to have the AR catless pipes in conjunction with this?

Looking at your pics OP, do you have any other picture angles? I wonder if the outside of the tips is spaced away from the bumper as much as in the inside? (are the tips centered?)

Thanks!

My tips are perfectly centered. You can adjust the muffler positions to center them using the brace that ties the two mufflers together.

Fantastic sound! The tips fill the diffuser openings nicely. DP certainly bring out more of the deeper sound..
