M performance exhaust with x pipe?

Anyone run this setup yet?

I am looking to add an Xpipe, since I want a little bit more noise. But I am very curious to know if anyone has done this yet.

Hopefully someone will post something up!

Thanks ahead,

Kian

if you want a little bit... remove 2nd cat and resonator... (THIS SHOULD DO THE TRICK)

if you want insane... remove 1st and 2nd AND resonator.... (but in your case and looks like you live in WLA... id toss this idea... ) cops will be all over you... LOL

I am trying to not do custom, because I don't want my stock pipes to be cut up or touched, just in case if something happens down the line of owning this car where I have to put the car back to stock..

But cops would for sure be all over me if I did do that hahaha.

Not really. Just use caution and you'll be fine. I have friends here in west LA with catless gintani race, akra evo, catted gintani sports, catted remus race and none have ever had problems. Just depends on how the power you're looking to make and the sound you want. I too am curious how an x-pipe will wound with the M exhaust.

if your going to have to replace the xpipe you have to cut the oem pipe.... otherwise you have to get the full xpipe if you want to save your OEM.

its pretty much a gamble... some cops are asshole and some are cool... i used to work in west LA with my Type R without CAT AND RES and never got pulled over.
