Well the exhaust went on in under two hours. The most difficult part was manuvering the stock system out. The key to success I found was height. With the rear of the car on jackstands (highest they would go) then a small amount of lifting on the front driverside it came right out.
The only problem I had was I could not get the tail pipe to center on the rear so I took it to a exhaust shop and they centered it for no charge. They added a little heat and a hard push and it was done.
It's not as loud as I expected, but you can deffinently hear more tone now than the stock system. Under a load it's offers more tone as well. If I had to describe it I'd say it is civilized. Nothing to be embarrassed about, thats for sure. As far as the ECU that could be done by an untrained monkey. Much to easy. The results of both these upgrades are astounding!
Compared to the stock set up this wagon hauls ass. I'm very pleased. I took some friends out for a ride last night and with all the extra weight it was still impressive to them. Mind you there were five adults in the car and it was still quick. Next weekend I going to carlsbad raceway here in san diego
and I'll get some real 1/4 mile times. Tonight the g-tec will have to do.

JWKC, when I ordered the ecm I had asked about that and the guy told me that their is only one upgrade availble. There is not a high boost program then a higher boost program. So I got the only one they offer. Seems to work pretty good too.
