It was cold out so it took a bit for the car to warm up (notice all the vapor?), I tried to wait until it settled down and the IAC closed for the second part. My RPMs are raised at idle for a bit smoother idle but it lopes pretty good in gear with the brake on. The tips are hanging to low and I have new hangers on order to bring it up closer to the rear fascia. After that I will be happy

Nice sounding car. For the cutout, is it just a single cutout at the bottom of the downpipe?

What type of 3" tubing? Aluminum or stainless steel?

It is heavy, and unfortunately not droppable. Weighs more than the stock setup. I'll just have to add more power. I never was one for weight reduction anyway. I hope the cutout can account for some of the loss due to more weight.

I had'nt thought about the weight either
Do you have the high flow cat as well or is a combo res/cat?

Should get an interior car video for comparison

I want a Gen V. I thought it was loud with the 3.0" pulley when I saw it in person.

Watch on the 1-2 shift. If you look closely you can see the tires break loose on the shift and the whole car shifts a bit to the left before they grab again. I remember feeling it during the run but I was concentrating on the road. Makes for a fun ride
