anyone ever done an x-pipe (retain primary cats) + stock exhaust mod?

The exhaust is a bit louder with just an x-pipe, so curious on noise with the mod as well.

Don't want my DD to be too loud

Yes, I am delivering it to Portland on Saturday.

I will miss this car big time but it is going to someone who will appreciate her as much as I did.

That new video sounds soooo good. I'm sold but I need to spend money on winter wheels/tires first.

It's been a few months so here's another bump to see if anyone has had this done recently at any shops. I've called CNC and they said they haven't done one but they could do it for around $400-500. Cantrell Motorsports thinks it will be a total 4-5 hour job which is $440-550. Group2 Motorsports hasn't done one yet (although I'm sure they could). I'm ready to get this done and I'm leaning toward trying Bucky's on Aurora since Kao had it done at their shop in Auburn. Any thoughts?

I don't like the bass of the Megan. I like the trumpet sound of the OEM.

So the there's a Buckys in Renton and when I asked about it they were willing but wouldn't give me a solid price. The one in auburn did it once so for him it took about 3 hours, costing I think 3ish.. Keep in mind he was multitasking too so if the guy was more focused he'd prob be done sooner.

Thanks!
Speedware Mototsports can do this mod. The only shop that has done work on my car that I would give 5 stars!

Speedware Motorsports has done it before and they're actually doing one right now when I called. They said the middle cut out with replacement of the large perforated pipe method is about a 6 hour job. That's definitely not worth it to me. I wish I liked the Megan sound better because that thing is a steal. I guess I need to hear one in person.
