Megan Exhaust Update

So, its been roughly a week since I have installed my Megan Exhaust. I tried to take the car out for a spin as much as I could in the past week and managed to throw 150 miles on the odo.

I have to say the Megan exhaust is awesome. Much more than I expected from a sub $600 exhaust. Its sounds amazing. Not too loud, almost non existent drone and exotic down shift blimps.

My goals were:
  1. Not to annoy the neighbors
  2. Not noticable to wife
  3. Noticable when I want
  4. Lighten the car a little

This exhaust sounds just as good as any other slip on exhausts that I have heard, and maybe better. It is quiet. My best description of the exhaust is that it sounds identical to the stock exhaust but 50% louder through the entire rpm range.

I love it because my wife does not even know I installed a new exhaust! The tiny bit of drone occurs in a very short range between 2300-2500 from what I remember. That is easy to avoid.

I 100% recommend this exhaust. Its exactly what I wanted from an exhaust and I don't think its loud enough to attract tickets.

With age the exhaust will get a tad louder...you can always go the test pipe route which I did and it made it quite a bit louder.

Biggy. You ever go to Cars & Coffee in Irvine Saturday mornings? I would like to check out and hear that exhaust.

Glad you like it.
