Fabspeed Race Exhaust Video Clip!

Hey all,

Ordered this exhaust a couple of months ago and installed it while the weather was still crap. I replaced the Borla that I'd bought late last year and only used for about 400 miles..

The Fabspeed looks great, ran into a few installation snags but nothing major.

Here's some clips from the exhaust, sorry about some of the choppy video!

Ha, thanks! Glad you like it.. There's some drone / resonance mainly between 2500-3000rpm other than that it sounds great to me..

Exhaust sounds good. Do you have any headers or bypass pipes installed, or is it just the FabSpeed race exhaust?

What does the total Fabspeed Race exhaust that you have consist of? i.e., headers, cats (4, 2 or none), Muffler?

Just out of curiousity, why'd you ditch the Borla? I keep hearing completely mixed ideas on those, i.e., "sounds fantastic/too-loud/not-loud-enough/huge-drone", etc. Was interested in your opinion.

I think I had $200 in this muffler..

The launch control was $200, took about 4 hours to install it and tune it via laptop
