No just the cat back.

I had to bend the battery box cover down to keep it from rattling. And the ass end of the exhaust has allot of side to side play in it. Hopefully if in get that last hanger connected somehow it won't be as bad.

Sound is great you can hear it alittle more in the car compared to the one ball, and is good bit louder outside. Nice deep tone and I think a little less burble than the one ball had.

Overall I love it. As soon as I find my camera I will get a video clip.

watch the plastic rear valance, those tips will start to melt it unless you fix the play.

The way it is now they will touch it in a turn but settle back in the middle. Tomorrow I will hit up the local muffler shop and see if they can help me out.

Are you sure that spot right above isn't just missing the factory hanger bracket and rubber? On realoem it looks like maybe #17 & 13 or #18 & 13.

I think there should be a factory hanger there, but it got lost when I got the one ball.

Humm I need to look under the car again, make sure the hanger I need isn't hanging out unused on the driverside.

Fabulous videos Cole - you need to change your notes under the them to reflect the setup. ie: windows up, etc.
So what are your impressions? It sounds throatier, much less rasp. I'm glad the burbling is still there. What do you think about the difference in cabin noise?

Thank you so much for making these vids.

Sorry about that.

Its allot deeper tone with very little rasp. In the cabin it is pretty noticeably louder, but only when you put you foot in it, and no noticeable drone, just the way it should be.

If i had to have a complaint it would be that there is a bit of added vibration, mostly just at idle, but a tiny bit when cruising. I had to take all of my change out of the little tray in front of the e brake, due to the coins rattling very loudly. this i believe is due to the mounting point on the resonator. The two mounting arms are raped in some sort of rubber sleeve, that rests on the mounting plate underneath the shifter. I could take this off and trim that piece pretty easily though....

this is my only complaint, but i really do not mind at all- Because RACECAR lol

As for the tips I have grown to like them, I think they look good and the tiny difference in length doesn't bother me.

however the after i added the new mounting point, I cannot get the tips completely centered i need to cut about a 1/4" of the pipe that slides in to the muffler. so that i can slide the tips over just a little bit more to the passenger side to center them up.

Over all I am very happy with the design, quality, and sound, and would recommend them to any one
