I have a TXS and I can't ever get it to fit right. But it was cheap as hell, got it used.

I actually had the TurboXS stealthback and didn't like it at all. I had fitment issues as far as bending the tab at the bottom of the downpipe portion. I want things to fit right without modification. Plus, the absolutely enormous bellmouth is pretty thin up top and you can hear a ton of whistling when you get on and off the gas (all catless pipes are inherintly louder though). If you don't mind the modification and extra noise, go with the cheaper TurboXS model. The catalytic converter is going to keep you legal and reduce any smells coming out the back.

To be honest, I'd go with the MadDad unit. He's a GREAT vendor, and while the cat in his exhaust makes it a bit pricey, I like the fact that it doesn't taper at all. Also, I have read on here about people's TXS cats not lasting a very long time.

i have a used TXS stealthback, it fit fine after bending that little tap piece. only problem, the used cat pipe had the catalyst material dislodged and sitting sideways in the pipe (hitting a big bump). i got a new pipe to fix that. the cat is pretty ****ty on this system. But price was awesome at only $420
