Well it's about DAMNED time dude!!

Let me guess where the leak was ......... right side/forward??

I'm not sure how to explain it but, ANYONE with this type of exhaust will notice "drone" mainly when the RPM range the car is traveling in really isn't matched to the speed ......... kind of like being in too high of a gear when trying to accelerate .......

Looking forward to the sound clips!
congrats!

If you're talking about the passenger side near the muffler, then you are correct!

I updated the OP with vids! Hope you guys enjoy!!!



It's not too loud, but definitely an improvement from the stock exhaust. And the drone is very minimal. And when I say minimal, I mean minimal.

Nice videos and exhaust.

The prob tho is that most of the videos don't end up doing justice to the sound of these exhaust in real life. I listened to a lot of AE exhaust videos and none of them sounded like actually hearing the car start up in person.

Thanks! At first I thought that the sound will be close to the stock exhaust, but now that I have it on, I LOVE IT!!! A little louder than the stock exhaust with a low tone.

Took vids today and will post them tonight when I get home.

water was dripping out due to condensation, which is normal. i would get it welded. clamp exhausts usually tend to leak later on.

Du'uh!!! I know that!



I said that the water was dripping out of the pipes where one of the clamps were. No that I tightened the clamp, no more leak.

And if you want to check out how a straight pipe (muffler delete mod) sounds like, check this thread out. You might like that better, since it's louder.
