The video clip from Modbargain shows 80-90mph at 4-5k rpm
who does that on a regular basic???
It would be better to show video clip around 60-70mph at 2-3k rpm if you want to convince people about droning issue.

Small update - exhaust came in today as expected. Looks great from what I looked at. I should have pics and vids up sometime this weekend. And haha right, cam won't be in the pipes. I hate exhaust vids from straight behind the car where all you can hear is wind noise from the exhaust blowing on the mic. Anyway, look for another update either tomorrow evening or Sunday.

Yea sure I can do that. It was 31 and snowing all day today, and its supposed to do about the same tomorrow, so no guarantees on getting it on tomorrow. Monday is looking a little more attractive to me.

Ok guys, here's something you've been waiting for. The in car cruising videos will have to wait til its a little nicer outside, but this should give everyone a great idea of what to expect out of this exhaust.

My passenger side exhaust hanger is broken, so I'll need to replace that soon. I'd say the exhaust hangs SLIGHTLY lower on the right side, I'm sure its due to the broken hanger. And the tips maybe ever so slightly do point downward. I'm very pleasantly surprised with the sound of this exhaust, it really sounds wonderful in person. Definitely not too loud, at least not for my taste. Its the first time I've gotten under the car since I've owned it, and I did see an extra aero turbine resonator in section 2. So its all factory exhaust, with the exception of the extra resonator, and of course the Megan Racing axel back. Onto the pics and videos!

If you look close at the first pic, it says "aero turbine" on it. That makes it an ar20, or ar25 I believe.

Mmmm ok. Thanks a lot man. I really appreciate it. Looked cold out there. It's 90 in Cali right now. I am pretty sure I'm going to buy this. But no matter what I'm going to get an ar20 first.

Haha yep it was a little cold out, about 31. I'll get some cruising videos in the next couple days. Thanks for the compliments guys! Suspension is just Oem shocks with tein springs. I've had the car for about a month, and I LOVE it.

Looks great
thanks for all the trouble you have gone through!
Oh and that is not an OEM muffler you have.
It looks like you have an after market with black tips (is it Dixie???)

Yea man no problem, glad I could help. And yes I know that wasn't stock exhaust, it was a Dinan. I didn't like how it had "dummy" tips on the drivers side.
