Exhaust X Pipe Teaser

So I finally pulled the trigger on putting in an X-pipe replacing the resonator. Here are the before and after pics. VIDEOS are coming but chill don't have much time this weekend to edit anything.

Welds are not the best but only paid $150 and they don't leak!!

First impression ehhh..... It does make a difference when getting on it much louder at a lower rpm but nothing that will really stand out. No drone at all, actually inside windows up (acoustic glass) you would never know unless you are on it in sport or adaptive. While I was there I went over an idea with the fabricator on getting a custom muffler setup built. Not sure if I will or not, it's just that OEM exhaust is so damn good at silencing.... I don't want to have to go super fast to make it sound good, but I also don't want it to rumble like a muscle car at idle..... So I will need some sort of muffler just gotta decide what to do next.

Setup is X-pipe, exhaust flaps open all time.

wow, so you removed the cats???? How the heck did you get past the codes or are you just dealing with them. Last place I talked too Dinan Performance told me right now they have no way around it and maybe have someone local work it out.....

So you left the muffler in place as well? Do you have pics or video?

I just noticed I posted this incorrect, it should be under the exhaust modification section. Any admins wanna move this for me?
