Default Cobb TBE

How many people have it? I am thinking of buying this for my stage2. It's pretty expensive but I like the way it looks/sounds (from videos).

is it worth it or should I look for something else.

thanks

I know two guys with them. They love them. Quality and fit is 10/10. It's a little bit pricey, but everyone is very happy with them.

TBE = Turbo Back Exhaust

Maybe it's loud because of the catless DP.

If I got this I would get the catted DP. I want it as quiet as possible.

I have the Cobb catted TBE. Love it! Great quality, install was a breeze, sounds very aggresive. It's louder than the prodrive, but not that loud. You're welcome to listen to mine if you like?

Here's a link to my install thread. http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...1&page=9&pp=25

As you can see it looks near stock from behind... just doesn't sound anything like stock!

Thanks for the offer. I might have to come out to one of the meets to hear it. Yeah that tip looks pretty much the same as stock. I like that! Where did you get your if you don't mind me asking?

The DP is beautiful. The catback section is rather loud, IMO.
You could always go with a Cobb DP and mate it to another axleback depending on the sound you're after...

I went with an STi axleback and it sounds grat - if a little quiet!

I just added a 5x24" resonator with a 3" straight flow to the mid section of the cat back exhaust...Wow what an improvement to the sound quality...very pleased with the results!!!

Quiet and catless...perfect!
