Beating the dead horse about exhaust, I got the Sport Kit from IPD and installed it on my car last night. As far as it being louder than stock, I can not really say, as I have been driving for about 3 weeks with no rear muffler, so it all seems quiet to me. I love this system though. The sound is very nice, a subtle little rumble to it, and accleration feels soooo much smoother. I dont know if that is added power, or just simply having a complete exhuast system, but I definitely like this system better than what was on there before. Once this system goes, though, I will probably opt for the stainless, just for the durability. <p>Question: Now that the system is intsalled, and will soon be completing a round trip from DC - NJ this weekend, is it too late to, and should I, consider getting some high-temp paint to coat the system with, just to help maintain it a bit longer?
