I've been all over the rwd/awd parts for sale forum and found nothing that I'm looking for...there's a borla with a straight pipe but the welds look questionable...and I'd like to have a resonator haha don't want the wife to hate it
I bought a Elevate S60R system for my T5 a few weeks ago for $590 on ebay including shipping. Brand new from Elevate. No drone while highway driving and has a monstrous yelp when the throttle is stabbed. The Polished Stainless finish on this is one of the best I have ever seen in any kit for any car and I have installed Remus and Dinan kits on new BMW's that don't look half as good. The IPD finish also has nothing on this and I've read many folks upset with rusting clamps and welds. The resonator is big enough to minimize crackles and pops. I get just a little crackle when coming off hard throttle but also running catless and quite a heavy tune.
Saw they had it up to $620 but I also seen it drop to around $560 before. I think they kinda toss them out there upping the price if one sells quickly, lowering it not. You can always make an offer on the "contact seller" portion. Offer $550 shipped and see if they bite. Its a very nice kit for the money. I suggest handling it with microfiber towels with rubber gloves on and giving it a stainless steel cleaning before the engine is ever fired. Once those marks and fingerprints are on and its heated up, they never will come off again. Avoid using common rags as they may scratch the surface.
