Yeah, stock exhaust after the pipe. And it is still pretty quiet. Can hear turbo spool now and a light rumble is noticeable. Which I like because I donít like loud exhaust.

Low end has definitely kicked up some. Spools up quicker. It cruises at lower rpm easier. Doesnít feel like itís bogging below 2k cruising around town.

I canít tell how much of a difference overall itís making yet. I ran a log after install and Iím only getting 79% throttle input at wide open. After I change the TPS Iíll get a better feel for it.

I should mention that the uppipe was already de-catted, has a lightweight flywheel, tgv delete, and a mild tune on an ej208 longblock. So it wasnít a slouch before. Aside from being able to hear the turbo spool, it definitely made a noticeable response/power difference.
