Default RVM Turbo back

First I just want to say wow!! This thing is awesome!!! It was such an easy install and the sound and power are just awsome. Spool up is so much quicker and you can hear your turbo whine everytime you just touch the gas. I had no major probs with the install, just 2 minor things. The supplied bolts where a little too large for the holes in the flanges so I just had to go buy 2 new bolts and nuts, no biggie. Second, the canister is a little large, so I had to bend a little bit of the metal heatshield so that it didnt scratch it. I just took pliers and bent like a 3 inch strip, def no big deal, took like 10 seconds. That was it, nothing else was a problem at all. I have only had it on for 3 days and have had 7 compliments on the sound and looks. To tell you the truth I wasnt a big fan of the huge tip and ricey look, but for under 600 bucks and the performance gained you cannot beat this at all. The welds look good and the craftmanship looks pretty good too. I have nothing to compare it too, but I was pleased with it so that should say something. I just cant say how happy I am with it. I would def reccomend this prduct to anyone looking for a very affordable exhaust that will perform and look good.

EDIT: If anyone has any ques just post and I will answer all of them. The sound is great. When on the throttle its a head turner, but when you are cruising its a tad louder than stock. Its a very nice sound, very strong throaty rumble.

I dont like to speculate on numbers but I can tell you the car pulls much harder. I can hear the turbo and it just feels like the car is po'd. I have a catless up pipe already and I have a unichip as well. I dont have a CEL fix and havent gotten a CEL yet. I have had this is for about 400 miles. Power is great when you mash on it from a launch and its even more noticible when you are alredy going and just hit it, the turbo jut spools right up and a lot of the lag is gone. The car sounds great and I think that this is one of the best exhausts on the market taking every factor into place. You just cant beat that price for a system of such good quality, I am very happy.
