Here is a quick clip from the outside of the car. Honestly I find these videos mostly meaningless as the car sounds different under load, and different from in the car, but these are common and so you can compare. I will try and make a video from within the car in a day or so.

Can you make a drive by video with accelerations and decelerations? Also do you still have your stock headers?

Maybe you should have done a mod like this bloke did. You would have been able to reverse it with no problems.

Have you by any chance been able to compare it to a zhp muffler? I want just a touch more aggressive sound than the zhp, but not much. I got the active autowerke one and it sounds almost exactly the same (minor variation in tone, but barely noticeable).

I havnt been able to compare. But I'll bet dollars to donuts that the zhp sounds better.

Sounds way better than a muffler delete (I know from experience as well lol), did you end up getting the 11378 magnaflow?
