From my understanding the back-pressure isn't impacted as this is done mainly by the cats and resonators..

I drove 2 hours from Philly to get my exhaust done at ACM...I'm assuming it would take you around the same amount of time or less.

Not really sure, but if you'd like, we can build one and ship it to you?

Wanted to thank everyone again (Sal and the others who I apologize I didn't catch your names) for a great experience. I was severely jetlagged but was excited to have this exhaust installed. And it was worth it--i drove back to NYC with the windows down, just listening to this exhaust sing.

Yes, it is MILDLY louder than stock, and when you really hammer it, it responds. But at idle, and low rpm (less than 3000rpm) you barely notice anything different, and visually it appears nothing different than stock.

Thank you for a job well done. I highly recommend it, and definitely think the car should have come from the factory this way. I can't imagine someone spending $4k or more on the M Performance exhaust!

If you got the ACM version, i would definately have to disagree that its only mildly louder. Its a huge difference in sound from the outside, however not from inside the cabin, if thats what you meant. Awesome aggressive sound without obnoxious drone for only 500. Best mod out there.

Yes--thanks for the clarification. What I care most about is the inside sound.

Although I am now curious to see if I get pulled over for a loud exhaust--NYC cops can be a pain.

Yea idk about NYC, but im sure if you dont beat on it in all the wrong places i bet you dont get bothered. The only way i think they will say something is if you get pulled over for something else and the cop just feels like adding insult to injury ha.
