i think you might have the wrong forum... all ive heard for applications for a pro-1 exhaust are for 350z's ... try my350z.com

Isn't that the same model exhaust as Che sells here on the forum?

Might be the same one that he sells, as they look the same
i just ordered one and should be installing it once it arrives, and can let you know how it sounds and all that, and probably a soundclip for others like you that would like to know what they are getting

btw, you can go on their site, and there is a picture, dyno, and soundclip...(but sounds like a stock car lol)

DJ, the exhaust comes with the standard stainless tips or the titanium finish style tips, but they're built into the unit, and aren't the type where you can interchange/exchange tip styles.

I have the titanium version available... By the way, I'm loving your new signature avatar picture... looks awesome!

as promised, here is a quick sound clip right after it was installed. and it was raining too.
1st impressions, not that really loud at all, there is absolutely no drone whatsoever at any RP, and i know that its only been there for maybe a mile, so im expecting it to wear out a little and sound a little bit more louder. i will comment on that as well once i put some more miles on it.
definitely sounds nice, not ever the top, not loud either, but definitely not stock

pis will come soon

Soundclip

you will like it

is this just a muffler or does it replace the secondary cats?

cost?

how hard to install yourself?

did you REALLY notice ANY power gains? it seems on a lot of cars, a cat back does nothing but make more sound, but if you remove cats, or go high flow, you cant get more power depending on the car.

i have NO idea how choked up the stock exhaust is on a 2.7L car... if you can pickup 10+hp, maybe you'd feel it.

have you driven it much with the top up? does it drone? hurt your ears?

on soft top cars, i've noticed some exhaust mods can really make the car a nuisance to drive iwth the top up. years ago i had a miata, and thre on a cheap muffler that sounded great with the top down, but top up it droned so bad my ears hurt and I got rid of it for a higher quality tuned system that was far better..ut it still droned a little.

how is this one?

hey,
well to do it yourself you need to take the bumper off (there are aproximately 8 screws holding it) and then you can see like 6 or so bolts holding the muffler on, take them off and muffler will slide off.
i just replaced the muffler, and didnt touch the cats.
as for the drone with top up, i honestly say it,there is none! very exciting because i was actually expecting some at least.
as for power, i didnt notice anything to be honest...and wasn't expecting any lol, its a porsche LOL
BUT, it is lighter, saves you few lbs, and sounds and looks better, so im all go, same as the expectation and power gains from expencive EVO intake lol, sad but true (well cost me a MAF sensor so add another $200)

would i pay anyone even a dollar to install this? no
would i recomend it? yes
drone? none
sound? sweet, not loud, throaty, growly
weight? saved
power? none
looks? better
