got sick of the odd banging on the bodywork and the 3500RPM res in the shell, so put into a stock local. the extra curves seem to give a bit more low end torque too.

i'm sure the clamps will get nice and dirty soon and it'll fade away.

before it was like this, but tended to run tight to the body and bang now and again

Looks good!

I found that by removing my rear box, i am getting a bit more power. Now i just need a tip to bring it out from beneath the car.

Open downpipe is the only way to go.
Nice and loud, really lets people know you have a performance car.

Had great fun with the back box on 740TI it was noisy and managed to smash half way through the panhard rod attachment point to the back axle - net result new panhard rod but no damage to the exhaust - amazing what putting up with a little bit of noise can do.

Open downpipe makes your car sound like a piece of **** to 90% of the people you'll encounter on the road on a daily basis. and IMHO, it sounds like **** period.

A nice, loud, deeeeeeeeep rumble is what lets people know you've got a performance car, and that can only be had with a full 3" with a muffler. 86745ti's 780 has an exhaust like that and it has the sweetest tone EVAR. Just a nice, deep rumble that vibrates the ground...little to no raspy sound whatsoever.

I like the lights behind the grille - do they restrict the airflow? If not are they easy enough to fit?
