The caveat is that I am running their CBE without the midpipe's resonator. I think it might get too quiet with just the axleback, but hey, they're exhaust is modular so you can buy the axleback alone first and if you want more sound get the nonresonated (or resonated) midpipe. The nonresonated mid lets through some subtle pops and burbles that I happen to really like.
Here's a video of my exhaust, just catback.

For overlays, Batmobile was mentioned, but I have the set from IAG
. They've been perfect for 2 years now.
(If you turn this into a build thread I can take down these pictures, just wanted to give you a visual!)
Great info! I've been talking with Ryan at Nameless and he's been very helpful. I'm still seriously considering the NP TBE w/ the Magnaflow muffler. The other one I'm looking at is the Maddad Whisper CBE and downpipe. People say he's hard to get a hold of, but Rich answered my questions within a day or two and was extremely thorough... really terrific feedback. He mentioned the shorty dp option which keeps your stock midpipe and saves money, but I think I want to go stainless front to back to help deal with the upstate NY winters. Tough decision... BTW, how's the Magnaflow packing hold up after some use? Have you had it long? Does it get much louder or blow out? Thanks!
Thanks for the taillight pics too.

Great info on the $200 savings... Did not know that.

I agree with the opensource tune if you already own a laptop.
Yeah catted is a no-brainer for me. Opensource has been working great. Did a few sdcard standalone logs and brought them up fine in Virtual Dyno. Fun stuff. TBH, opensource is a little confusing at first but you'll get it eventually after some interweb searches and playing around.
