Again, i haven't really noticed much difference. I feel I may have gained some high end, but i also feel like it may just be all in my head. Honestly I bought it because it was so much cheaper than the stock tips and slightly bigger piping diameter (plan on doing some exhaust work in the near future) Anywho, I hope that answers your question.
More than answered any questions I had thanks!

It's barely louder than stock under 3k RPM's but after that you can hear it open up. It can easily be drowned out by some loud music but sounds good when you keep the RPM's up on the twisties!

It was looking nice and dirty at the beach after a few hundred miles on Hwy 101. So I snapped a pic at the hotel.

Not stock it's lowered about an inch on Mach V springs. i do think the angle of the shot makes it look different. Thanks for the comment though!

Sell/trade towards a WRX or STI is your best option.

It would still be your best option. Or just enjoy your car for what it is while saving for what you want.
