I have the TSE3 and no one will keep this set up. IT IS TOO LOUD. The TSE3 has NO muffling agents in it. It is basically straight pipe if not tuned cancel the right frequencies. Anyone who does this will be very very sorry.

I'm not bugging you guys because I don't listen... Just want to see if there are any videos of it besides that one driving down the street... I'm absolutely not getting the headers with it, I agree with everyone that it will be extremely loud, and I wont able to live with myself in that car. Let alone that the sound will be resembling a race-car with only 200HP ... Just curious, that's all...

I did it for the power, not the sound. Thus, no more TSE3 + headers.

Ok I have the exhaust on now. It is loud I will give it that. But if you are normal driving it is barely louder than the stock exhasut. The one thing that I dont like about the exhaust is it is to raspy for my taste, I like a throaty sound like the tse2 had. I have not decided if I am keeping it yet. But like I said under normal driving it is not noticble that you have an exhaust. As for videos I dont have a camera and I am trying to acquire one as we speak.

If that's the case, Ebay headers must flow like crap. I could barely tap the gas without shattering windows.

It depends on what you mean by tap the gas and also do you have a stick.

As long as you keep it under 3k and slow acceleration its quiet but after that is when it gets loud

Sounds about right. I just don't like keeping my revs down

I'll admit, though, it sounded wicked at high rpms.
