Default Anyone running Cobb CBE+ perrin headers?

Hey guys I am currently running an invidia n1 race exhaust and I found a Cobb catback for a great price. I will be running perrin el headers with this set up and I am looking for a sound clip of someone who is running the Cobb catback with perrin headers so that I can get an idea of how it will sound. I could not find this setup on YouTube anywhere so if someone has this set up and could help me out that would be great. All help is appreciated, thanks.

Just stop worrying about it and do it! Why does it matter about how it sounds or that you can't find any sound clips? I don't understand the fear of being different... You don't like how it sounds, you change it! Easy enough, right?

1. You get 1 bump a day
2. Are you looking for a quiet exhaust?
3. Expand your search by including all the Cobb knockoffs

^^ I have heard the Cobb exhaust by itself, and I have heard the N1 with perrin headers but I have not heard the Cobb with the perrin headers. I have noticed that particular exhausts make the el header "Honda-like" sound more pronounced. The N1 is not one of those exhausts and I am wondering if the Cobb is or isn't. I would love to quiet the car down a bit but not at the expense of making it sound more like a tin can ya kno? I have limited time to make a decision on the matter because the deal on the exhaust won't last long. I don't have the luxury of paying $600+ for an exhaust and only to decide I don't like it and go buy another one.

i have perrin EL headers, and full perrin cat back exhaust, you wont be disappointed by the sound or power gain.

The EL quiets it down a bit once its fully warmed up, but when you step on it you'll hear it.

No sound clip though since i dont have the cobb cat back as well, GL

$600 for a Cobb exhaust is not a good deal. Try searching for Perrin EL Headers in combination with the numerous Cobb catback knockoffs available.

I bought my car with Perrin EL headers and a Greddy Evo2. The combination sounded great. My Billy Boat catback with Fujitsubo EL headers sounds even better but louder. The TurboXS standard axleback sounds good as well, which is what I believe the Cobb will sound like.
