The lip is in the first post, just like everything else. You should make a thread for your car. You're missing a few things vs. mine though; turbo, tranny, motor, etc...

Looks like a solid Stage 2+ though. If you're on E85 it's probably pretty fun. 100+ HP more makes it even more fun

I made 277hp and 310trq on AWDtunings dyno (the heart breaker) on corn should be at around 360 and 415 on 22psi or something like that.

Copy/Paste what you did above into a new thread. You aren't too lazy if you hijacked someone else's thread to do it.

They're going good. First gear obviously whines, second gear is a hair louder, but the rest seem like stock. 5th is obviously dead silent (OEM), so highway cruising is no problem. Shifter seems more firm, but no issues going into gear. I'm not sure what else to say other than it's been a few weeks of daily driving and it hasn't blown up, lol.

Removing that clutch delay valve was really a good change. The clutch is much more bearable now. I still say "bearable" because it's not great, or even like stock (for around town), but at least it doesn't shake the whole car apart anymore, haha. I would definitely recommend this for anyone with a puck clutch (who's not worried about their tranny, because I do think it can increase the car's ability to shock load the tranny).

It's still been in the 90's every day around here. Car always feels slower in the heat. I can't wait for a cool day. I've had a couple mornings in the upper 60's on the way to work and the car feels like a rocket, lol. Mostly I just putter around out of boost. With the stock 5th gear and stock exhaust my car doesn't sound like much going through my daily commute...

I just want to make sure I understand this...

The clutch delay valve was increasing the amount of time it took for your clutch to engage, and that's where the shuddering was coming from?

And by removing it you remove the built-in delay, so the clutch engages more quickly and you don't get shuddering. But at the same time you remove a safety that potentially protects against drive-line shock?

Is that right?

Yeah, basically. This is how I understand it:

I don't think it's the fact that it makes it engage more slowly that causes the shudder. It's more that it engages "sloppily" and the clutch isn't doing exactly what your foot is telling it to do. This "sloppiness" is meant to reduce driveline shock (and I'm sure it does), but when you have a harsh clutch, it makes it unbearable.

By removing it you get that control back. You can release the clutch very, very slowly if you'd like (and it doesn't shudder, usually). But you can also release the clutch very, very quickly if you'd like too. So if you're on a stock 5 speed, I wouldn't do it unless you're a cautious driver or prepared for the consequences.

I'm starting to get bored with my stock exhaust again, lol. I was half considering getting an N1 "because it's light weight" (at least that's what I told myself). I really don't think I'd be able to put up with it daily, though. So it would probably end up being a once a month exhaust, so probably not even worth it.

Looking around for other options, I came across the TurboXS. It looks a lot like the Q300 (4" tips, suitcase style muffler, etc), but it seems a bit better in just about every way. The muffler is flat and none of the piping sits low (like the Q300). Looks to be built just as well. From what I've read it is quieter than the Q300 and has way less drone (it has a larger muffle and resonator). These are big for me (quietness). I did read that it's louder than the SPT, so it will probably be pushing the limit, but it might be OK. The price is also quite reasonable.

I still think I'd be very happy with the Nameless (full size muffler version) or the Greddy SP, but I'm not willing to spend $1k on something that I feel doesn't increase my power at all (although when I have the stock exhaust on, it always nags on my mind that I might be leaving something on the table, lol). Since the TurboXS seems quiet(ish) and costs half as much as some of the other options, I'm really starting to think about it. Thoughts?

These are what I've read so far. I'll probably read up some more before deciding anything.

do it ^^^
I was debating this and the CNT. The CNT CBE is similar to the TurboXS (style). As for sound, comparing videos the CNT sounded a little bit louder. So I went with the CNT. Quality was good and couldnt be happier with little to no drone on the highway and great sound while pushing on the right pedal. BTW this exhaust was obnoxious when first installed but mellowed out within 500 miles or so. In all I like the choice I made but something a little more quite could have been a better choice but hell that boxer rumble sure does put a smile on my face when I fire up my car in the morning to head to work.

If it cost $500 I would buy one right now. Literally. At half the cost, the TXS is pretty tempting. Otherwise, I'll probably stick to stock.

I've thought of it. But part of me wants to do it just for tips that look better than the crappy stock ones, lol. And I don't know how long a cutout would last in MN before it rusts itself in place...

Hadn't looked at the CNT. The exhaust actually looks pretty decent though. I'd be afraid that it would be as loud or louder than the Q300 (that I thought was too loud).

Get whatever you want. You'll eventually sell it, go back to stock, and then try something else a month or two later. You can't really make a wrong decision here.

Ben, the hang up you may run into with Turbo XS's exhaust is that it may require they're downpipe as well, I would e-mail them and ask. Being terribly close to Turbo XS and an Andrewtech customer (the two are like peanut butter and jelly), I am biased, but I say go for it! The drone is far less noticeable with that design, and it looks amazing.
