What made you choose this particular product?
I made installed it purely for sound.I wasn't looking for any kind of performance gain. But it does weigh about 50% less than the original muffler assembly.
Was it easy to install? Any installation tips that will help others?
It was a simple cut out the old and put in the new. There were only 3 sections of tubing that needed to be cut and welded.
Once you've had a chance to use the product, did it meet your expectations?
The exhaust note sounds great for a 3 cylinder at anything less than 75% throttle. A tiny bit of turbo spool can be heard at about 2,000rpm The engine gives off a very "airy" wooshing noise that occurs at anything above 75% throttle. The exhaust is so short (about 10 inches after the cat) it does not have a flex pipe and is rigid mounted to the engine only. This means the exhaust pipe moves with the engine. I spent about $70 in parts and about 2 hours of total work. If I were to do it again, I'd spent more time and do it properly.
Any additional comments?
With a complete muffler delete, the turbo and cat do a decent job at noise reduction. This car isn't as loud as most cars with straight pipe cat-backs. Let alone cars with a 2 foot exhaust.
