I am having the Dinan mid and rear exhausts installed next Wednesday.

Updates will follow as soon as I drive outta the shop and test it out...
Just so you know - if you are referring to the race pipes with the Dinan quad resonators and x pipe... Borla makes the same quad resonator x-pipe setup for about $1000 cheaper available on the Turner website. You can put it on any rear section. Here's a vid with it on a stock exhaust:

Much less refined than the Dinan sound IMO. This thing sounds like high volume wet farts...

Not saying I would buy it, but I didn't think it sounded all that bad...

Instead of asking all these questions on here, why don't you just come check out my car and whiff around since you are considering 200 cell cats. I think when the car is sitting in the garage idling for a while, there is a bit of a smell. But I cannot smell anything at any other time unless I am sniffing big time right around the exhaust tips. I don't recommend this anyhow.

I might have to do that! Next time in in your neck of the woods I'll let you know...

Cool, you must have heard the Dinan mid on the stock exhaust. Do you have a video to post so we can compare. I've only heard the Dinan mid combined with the Dinan rear exhaust, which obviously would sound much different than combined with the stock exhaust as in the previous video.

As far as I know, the Dinan and Borla are the only cat delete quad resonator x pipe designs -- essential for those desiring the delete without overpowering sound (and probably less drone)... so this would be a great comparo.

with the 200 cell and sport exhaust, how loud is it in real street driving situations. light throttle, low rpm driving?
