Got the car back today. It is LOUD. I think it might be too loud for my DD...We'll see after a few days. I would say its almost as loud as my buddy's e92 M3 with full eisenmann.
I need to hear this in person.

Would love to hear ver.1 mod vs ver.2 and how they differ.

Let's try and get something set up. Does anyone know of any good locations where we can show off our exhausts without bothering too many people? I'd hate to invite ya'll over and make enemies with my neighbors haha

don't in any way think that because i have a video camera
that i have any clue how to use it
i just have one when i used to film my son when he was a baby


if anyone has a tripod that would be swell
i'd like to have the camera fixed
and start my car and rev to a pre-determined speed ( 3K rpm then 6 etc)
then do the same for the other car at the same distance
basically i'd like to keep everything the same so you get a feel for the 2 setups under the same situation

I just installed the modded oem exhaust. I did the mod that replaces the perforated pipes with solid ones. It is scarcely louder than stock at lower RPMs but sounds AWESOME when you get on the gas. It is exactly what I wanted--quiet in the neighborhood yet throaty when you gas it. Not a bit of drone or obnoxious/juvenile sounds. I love it.

I used Dixie sheet metal to do the welding. It was not cheap-about $630. They did a good job though and fabricated and nicely bent the new tubing.

It's too bad welding is so expensive around here. I know I could get an Iowa farmer to do it for about $75 and do a good job.

Richard's car sounds nice as hell. I think they are both worthy mods. Very inexpensive and won't break you bank account. lol.
