My new exhaust

That sounds incredible. What does your butt dyno think?
 
How was the noise level under full power inside the car with the turn down exhaust? Was there any heat issues around the diff area? looks very clean. I'm also undergoing some offseason modifications for power and handling. Did the shop recommend long tube headers too?

I guess that was a little uninformative. I forgot to post the details.

Here is a link to pics from the shop that did the work.

I ended up losing about 43 lbs. and with unrestricted power, I gained 15HP and about 30 ft lbs of torque!
Nice. Don't let Gary see this thread. :p
LTs, o/r x and Corsas will be marginal for the street as it is........ ;)

Nice pucks on the pinch welds! Looks like top notch quality exhaust too.

Yes, they wanted me to go with long tubes (and so did I), but I don't want to change the factory tune.

I have been looking at the Borla long tubes because I had Zero problems with them on my FR500S. I also like the BBK ceramic coated long tubes but have no experience with them in a racing application. What brand did you use? Muffler kind?
 
I went with the stock headers that came on the car to avoid having to re-tune, + Magnaflow Stainless Steel Performance Muffler, 3" Inlet/Outlet
