I installed an ebay 3" testpipe and the borla downpipe. I didn't have a muffler at the time and open downpipe sounded like total ass so i modified my stock muffler and put it back on. What system out there is quit around town but aggressive when you get on it? This car is my DD so I don't need highway drone please. I already have one weekend track prepped car[wrench]

Borla FTW.

Otherwise I'd pick up the 034MS exhaust, only downside is that you could have saved money by buying it all at one place instead of piecing it together.

Meh. I paid a combined $250 for the test pipe and downpipe.

That's not bad, I had ~$300 into my TP and DP. The rest of the exhaust I got for "free", and had it welded up for $80.

I don't like "The rest" of my exhaust though. It will be changed some time.

I loved my borla and my currect neuspeed, both are quite...

Borla soundes a tad more aggressive and louder..
Neuspeed is very quite at 60-70mph on zee highway.. I just took a 15hr trip when i moved from ATL to BUFFALO lol

... Quiet, not quite.

Neuspeed FTL. That's my $.02 though.

Milltek for sure. Sounds great with a testpipe and a K03

a few old sound clips when I had a K03 and a 3" Evolution Raceworks testpipe

My vote is for Techtonics(2.5" borla system)

Resonated or not?

I think I'd leave it resonated, it sounds good as is, although I've never heard one non-resonated.

The thing I don't like about Milltek is the 2.5in DP.

I'm in love with my resonated milltek with a 3" test pipe... it's perfect.

This summer I'll probably get rid of the 2.5 downpipe for a 2.75-3" pipe.

Hmm. My borla downpipe is pretty long. It ends right where the rear door meets the rear quarter. Besides the borla catback, any other setups bolt right up to this?

Well, right now I"m running a GT3071r and a 3" downpipe (and no SAI and a different intake) so it sounds completely different

Much more throaty and a deeper tone....the milltek is perfect if you go BT. You won't have to change anythin cept the DP
