idk why people say the DP doesn't change the exhaust note, I definatly hear a difference.
i ended up snapping of 1 of the screws. its the bracket that has the passenger side mounting point for the heatshield. i dunno seems to work with it on.

yeah it's noticeably louder. the true test is if my gf notices, she's always asking if i did anything to the car because it sounds louder anyways.

Thanks for your time.
the only issue i have with rubbing is on slow turns with the wheel at full turn, but i think its just hitting my mudflaps. no issues with bottoming out which is pretty good considering how crappy boston roads are. you do have to be mindful of your front bumper especially if you have a lip. i typically approach driveways at an angle but its more precautionary than necessary. and mudflaps, they will rub, everywhere. but it goes to show RA's quality, besides a dull finish there's no signs of damage.
