Yeah it came on the caR when I got it. As soon as I get some money for a downpipe ill be looking to do a full 3in though. Probably with magnaflow muffler again cuz I love the way it sounds. All my buddies say that when I drive by my caR sounds like a jet. Me likey

is there any downside of having custom exhaust fabricated for the R?

None that I know of. Maybe someone else can chime in and give some better insight

Only downside is that you have no exact knowledge of how it'll sound, barring of course that you copy another's build.

Mine is loud and sounds great to most people I meet. Designed by Victory Performance Equip., but I believe it came from Mandrel Bending Solutions. Oval tubing.

I want to be unique so I like the idea of not really knowing how its going to sound LOL

don.miller has a custom 3" with no muffler only a resonator. It's loud and sounds pretty awesome!

I would say loudest without a cutout would be the elevate exhaust. I think the svenske was the loudest , but that is impossible to find since they have been discontinued for years!

There are two different "louds" ... "loud for the sake of being loud" and "performance loud" ... I'm a big advocate for "performance loud" ... I think mine is one of the more aggressive sounding exhausts around .. It's crazy .. sounds like a racecar... It's too much for some people, but music to my ears ... I went with Elevate's Turbo 3.5" DP into Elevate's race exhaust (this is their sport exhaust only with a straight pipe section that replaces a resonator) ... the system comes with a high flow muffler but, I cut that off and replaced it with a straight of straight pipe as well ... I made a custom one into two slash cut tip ... It's not the cheapest way to achieve "loud" ... but, in my opinion it's one of the best ways to do it.

Nothing for sale from a vendor is very loud
The Evevate 3" (if still for sale) would be the loudest by far, too loud IMO.
Removing the centor resonator from any of these aftermarket exhausts will make them pretty loud

I'm kinda in the same boat...I had planned to pick up an IPD exhaust and downpipe, but now with the EST sale I'm not so sure anymore. I think I've listened to the sound clips a million different times trying to decide. Just on sound alone I'm still leaning towards IPD. Anyone have any real world opinions on the matter that might help me pull the trigger for an EST setup?
