Here's my setup. Videos are from the night I picked it up. Planned on making better ones but I have not gotten around to it yet.

Muffler delete with two Vibrant Ultra Quiet Resonators and some pretty tips. Left every ahead of axle in place.

I get some drone/annoying sound around town at light load between 1700-2000RPM. I've only driven ~300mi since I got it done, but it seems to have mellowed out a bit or I'm getting used to it, not sure which.

Tips are cool!!! Certainly an interesting way to route the pipe. May just be the pic, but are the welds rusting already?

Just looked, yes they are. Is that normal? Everything is supposed to be stainless. Is there such thing as cheap rods or something? Also seems worse at tip to resonator weld than 2.5" to factory weld.

Stock on is worse. 2,100 miles on stock, 300 miles on new.

does not work for me either , trying to figure out why most members make the harsh tubing bends before the mufflers wouldn't a 45 degree bend look/flow better ?

That's the pic I showed my exhaust guy. He ignored it and did his thing. Not sure why, but I only paid $300, so I'm OK with it.

With the 90° bends, the mufflers can get tucked up higher to the body since they are further over away from the spare tire well.

For the life of me I can't find anyone that did catless dps with the stock catback. I just want to know how loud it is. I wanna keep mine quiet but have a cutout with a dump. Anyone?

Can anyone with the UP downpipes confirm the outlet diameter? I know they are 3" inlet/body but they neck down at the outlet, does it neck down to 2.5" or 2.25"? Thank you in advance!

So finally decided to do a muffler delete - albeit it temporary, I plan on looking a higher-flow mufflers here soon, as I'd like to cut down on some of the vibration and drone I experience as a result. I was honestly just looking to get some exhaust note in the car, without having to drop a fortune on it. I'm actually looking at the VAREX Exhausts, which can be controlled via Bluetooth to change the bypass percentage. They're roughly $400 for the muffler, there's a shop around here that does installs and piping for really cheap. I'll upload a video shortly.

Just curious, what made you decide to go to a single pipe design?
