Tips are soooo close to the bumper, hopefully it doesn't burn....mine does.


Sounds alright. I prefer my custom setup sound vs yours. But looks clean nice job

Beautiful sound!

How would you compare the sound to the EST Touring exhaust?

It is much louder and throatier than the EST touring, but that exhaust was made to be quiet and had a big resonator. I'm happy to report that there is no drone at lower RPM's. The EST would drone bad under 2000.

Sounds good man; what made you leave the touring so quickly??

I mean, I probably missed it, but I remember you installing it than a couple days later says its coming off - guess you already had the oval one coming in the mail?

Took it off because I scraped the resonator every time I tried to get into my driveway.

Can you post some sound clips from inside the car, I really like the way it sounds however it does seems a little loud for a daily driver.

....Why not cut it off and weld in another smaller res? seems kinda a waste of money to buy a whole new exhaust for something that would be an cheaper easier fix but it is your money ofcourse. Probably would of made it sound better also :D

Really not a crazy difference in price between doing that or getting IPD and selling this one. Also, the oval tubing leads to better ground clearance overall.

I'll try to take a video tomorrow. If anyone can find it, IPD did post a video from inside the car. It gets very quiet when you're cruising, but there's no real way to accelerate quietly lol

Thanks, old one is yours for the right price ;)
I would think about that if I didn't have all this sitting in my spare room :D

^So many silencing parts... tsk tsk tsk...

My IPD turboback sounds amazing. Only issue I have with it is, for some reason, my tips look small from a distance... They're about the same size as the stock one..

Oh also, my IPD tips yellowed REALLY QUICKLY lol. Texas heat, maybe?
