Got my downpipes in!

~~UPDATED WITH VIDEOS~~

Just received my VRSF downpipes in the mail this morning. Too bad I'm stuck at work all day!! I'll be attempting to install them tonight. Right now I currently have the crappy eBay HKS replica exhaust that I got for $300. I'll post some videos/sound clips as soon as possible!





In person you can't hear the rattle sound. Sounds much better.





Making some noise under the bridge. It doesn't sound like this driving around haha.

Nice, But I would ditch that crappy catback, go back to stock or aftermarket.
If you want a great sound, dps stock catback (replace secondary cats with vibrant resonators)

rasp city...that exhaust coupled with catless DPs you will not be happy with the sound...either way I wish the best for you on this install. Not fun, takes alot of patience and persistence. Alot of cursing and alot of blood going to the brain causing headaches! lol

Dealership said they can't get one in until Tuesday and its like $50.

As for the exhaust it does have resonators on it and if its too raspy I'll replace mufflers/resonators.

I'll be the judge of if I like it or not. I'll post videos when it's done so you guys can judge for yourself.
