Default M2 catback review

So like alot of others Imo a college student on a budget, i decided to buy the M2 3inch catback system of ebay for 170...

When i recieved the box i could tell it wasnt packed great, i could hear the pipes banging against each other when i opened the pipes were atleast inside (thin) bubble wrap, but my bolts, washers and nuts were all over the box.

so i called up my buddy to help me install, getting the OEM off was a breeze all we need was liquid silk.

then as we were bolting the mid pipe to the cat we realized the bolts provided would not fit through the OEM cat bolt holes so we had to drill to match the oem cat

Atleast all the hangers lined up and the rest went smootherish until i seen the tip is right against the rear bumper, no biggie i just ordered the Kartboy longer hangers all in all it sounds great if someone doesnt mind a little drilling its a bargin but a bargin at a price

****if anyone knows what i can put between the muffler and bumper in the mean time till my hangers arrive would be greatly appreciated****

Fixed the bumper in the mean time using folded up tiger exhaust patches works great

How does it sound? I'm looking to put one of these mufflers on a resonated 3"midpipe with a high flow cat added to a non catted dp.

Is the muffler a straight through design or baffled?

Oh I also e-mail the people that sell this to ask them about the muffler but figured since you have one I'd ask anyway.

i have the same exhaust with a high flow cat. it sounds great around town but does drone some on the highway. it does get a little annoying on long trips over 2 hours. for the price i dont think there is much better
