Or, switch back to the stock one, make casseroles for the neighborhood, and wear pleated pants with a sweater vest.

I'm a Banana Republic guy so Sweater Vests are cool so I'll wear my vest and make tuna casseroles.

Research is hard to do when there are like 4 San Diego guys here on M3 Post, who knows who has an exhaust and no one meets ups. I'd rather hear exhausts in person than on YouTube. If one says that YouTube helped them with their decision then they must believe there are Talking Dogs Who Love Maple Bacon. Just rolled the dice on getting the RPI just like I rolled the dice on buying this car. Now that I've experienced it first hand and my tuning shop is easy to work with I'll make the changes I want.

Roger that.

As for the smell it all just depends on the person, I have issues and love the smell of the 100 octane!
I will look into it.
