I got a deal on a V1 system I couldn't refuse. I have heard some people calling the muffler on this really raspy, is this true? If so, I guess I will replace it with the V2 muffler.

Anyway, does anybody have specs on it? Pipe size?
I read someone the DP is 2.25" and the rest is 2.5", dunno if that's true or not.

Yes the deal did involve money, very little of it compared to the new system. [:)]

Yea I'll see how it sounds first. If I can't stand it, I'll order the V2 muffler and sell this one.

I'm suprised it stayed up for sale for so long.. Couldn't pass up such a good deal though.

if it whistles like most do, i'd just get a magnaflow muffler and call it a day. also, i heard its 2.25 cat back.

Is the whistling a really bad sound?

Its more of a sandblaster sound then a whistling

It almost sounds like a turbo out the back at WOT. Kinda like a loud PSSSSHHHHHHHHHHH. I actually kinda like it. My friend's Techtonics exhaust (Borla mufflers) sounds like that. Sounds kinda bad ass and not like anything else out there. Give it a try and see what you think first.

Actually, that's what I was hoping the sandblaster noise was. I heard a WRX like that one time, nearly deffened me (was a 12 second car too) but it sounded soo unique it was awesome.

I have a Gen. 2 system and I love it. Wouldn't pass up the sound I hear everyday for anything.

It's my car Nate's referring to. I actually like it. It doesn't sound like anything else out there. I wouldn't mind having it a little deeper, but oh well. And it doesn't drone or anything on the freeway. It's only under alot of boost does it sound like a sandblaster.

Well I finally got the test pipe and exhaust put on. They sure do make a big difference in spool time! Fully spooled at 2k rpm is nice [:)]

Although, at WOT the exhaust is super loud. Can't notice it much at regular driving, but the sandblaster sound gets to me at WOT sometimes and especially on cold starts idling. It does sound great though, I've never heard a sound like it!
