The Vibrant mufflers don't do much in my opinion. Half the time when I put them on, even two or three its just like, yep, thats a straight pipe. haha.

The SPL blue Z I took a picture of a couple pages up had 5 Vibrant mufflers on it, and even with earbuds and a helmet the driver hated it. The magnaflow across the back made it bearable.

Magnaflow stuff works really well, they won't work miracles, but you can tell there's something there. All the ones I've used look pretty awful since they're all machine mig'd, but I'd still use them over Vibrant if the customer actually expects a muffler.

And Loomin, sounds like a sweet system. Could you explain the dual gates a little bit?
He is running a twin scroll setup so he has two wastegates..

Well, I don't have the pics yet i can snap some tomorrow probably. But here is a short vid which is better if you ask me... This is literally the first thing i welded up after i learned how to TIG weld so its not that purdy...
Its a 2.25 Cat Back setup with a Magnaflow muffler on my EJ22 Leggy Wagon.


Let me know what ya think!
Here is something I have been working on lately but took a little brake as I have been stupid busy lately.
I think I will have some time though to finish it in the next few days...

Here is my completely custom 3.5" turbo back exhaust. 321 stainless steel tubing with Nitroplate ceramic coating.













Here's the best soundclip I can give you right now. It's still waiting to be tuned.

Did this thing real quick for the Sideways Autosound fish car. He wanted something different so I did drift kids dual 3in tips for him. Every 240SX on the planet has something like this but I don't see many Subarus with it. It looks better on the ground when you can't see the can as much too.

I have been working on this exhaust for awhile now. I got the idea from saleen mustangs and vipers. I like the look of it, so decided to make a system of my own.

















Yes the pipes really do stick out that far. It looks goofy, but I like it. I might trim them down once i get some sideskirts.

Looking for a recommendation of ss resonator that I can weld in the middle of 3" Stromung midpipe. Something really quiet will be helpful.

would a cat back straight pipe with one resonator still be really loud? I have a catted dp and want a loud custom exhaust but feel like a straight pipe would be way too loud. If i just put a resonator in a cat back straight pipe would it be like the equivalent of an n1? Louder?

I have no cats, and a 3" straight pipe with resonator, and mine isn't all that loud. I would say it compares to an n1
