I was reading all the posts about louder exhausts and started checking out YouTube videos...

I liked mine but thought I could get a better sound with the bypass pipes....turns out I got exactly what I wanted.

I agree...my car sounded good with the "PSE Type" modified muffler, but when I installed the bypass pipes, it really came alive. Great sound on full throttle; not at all obnoxious cruising, like some of the aftermarket exhausts.

I am with you on that....by-pass pipes in concert with a by-pass muffler will make beautiful music. Removal of that secondary cat material gives a nice open burble...

I've got the same set up, plus headers. It sounds like a 997 Cup car.
