Default Godspeed exhaust

anyone had experiences with these exhausts? I found a good deal on a cat-back that I am getting . Brand new with Silencer included so I'm not ultra loud on formal occasions or long road trips. Any advice would be great.

P.S. planning on keeping stock exhaust for future in case I feel like getting rid of the rumble... I doubt I will, but just in case! lol

It's an Ebay exhaust sytem. It will be low quality but people will argue that it's "Just a pipe". Get it if you want, but don't be surprised when it has fitment issues, the baffles blow out, or the welds crack.

I haven't had any issues with my ebay exhaust. The fitment was ever so slightly off, but haven't had blown baffles or cracked welds. It's not rusting it's guts out, it's not falling off, it doesn't eat babies, and it won't kidnap your teenage daughter and take her to a jungle voodoo orgy with the cast of Deep Space Nine. It MIGHT be responsible for some global warming, though. The judges are still out on that.

Godspeed stuff seems to be hit or miss, but to be honest, almost ANY ebay WRX catback will be the exact same as that one, which means you can probably get an SR*S or Surewin or whatever-the-company's-name-is-this-week for less than that Godspeed one shipped.

I have an ebay catback. Fitment was horrible but $109 for a stainless 3" catback that took an hour to fit I can't complain. I've had it for 6 months with no cracked welds or baffle problems.

I actually got some at pep boys for a good deal. I needed some anyways for oil changes and some stuff I gotta do coming up here, like the coolant flush I have to do. But I'll post pictures and a video of it after I get it on. Also, you can see it in person at the fast five meet on may 1st. :-)

Well, definitely had some fitment issues. Had to take it to a Mr. muffler to have it cut and welded so it would fit right. but as promised here is a little video of before and after. filmed on my gopro so sound quality is pretty bad cause the mic on the camera isnt very good. Much better in person. Enjoy!!!

he cut and welded it and installed it for $25... not to shabby. Maybe cause it only took like 20 min and i told him exactly what needed to be done. Would highly recommend them!
