    Got it in yesterday...it was like $200 shipped off Ebay...the can is a little bigger than I expected it to be, but I don't think it looks too terribly bad...it's 2.5" (yes, I measured it) stainless, and bolted up PERFECT. Took me maybe 5 minutes to bolt it up after the 4 hours it took me to separate the cat from the stock exhaust...I tried a 14mm socket, 13mm socket hammered on when I rounded off the 14, 1/2 socket when I rounded off the 13, 12mm socket when I rounded off the 1/2, all after soaking it in some kinda industrial strength 'rust dissolver' shit (which, consequently, does NOT dissolve rust...it will, however, dissolve skin.) I ended up beating the bitch out of it with a hammer until the studs broke off. The flange on the cat was a bit bent up, but I just put an extra gasket on so it's all good...I'm gonna run a test pipe when I get my motor in anyways...

    As far as the sound, it sounds AWESOME. It's almost as quiet as the stock exhaust (or rather, as quiet as a stock exhaust WOULD be...I didn't have a muffler before, just a cat and a resonater...that's how I bought the car), but it's deep as fuck. Even without the crappy silencer. I love it...can't wait to hear what a B16B with no cat is gonna sound like through it.

    :)


    Oh, and before anyone asks, I've got stockies up front (with 99 DX hubcaps zip-tied on) because the ghetto-ass springs sit the front so low, the front fenders cut the hell out of my 205/50's when I turn. I'll have my Tein SS's on before next weekend, and put the Buddy Club's on the front then B)

    not bad looking at all. the end of the muffler sits a little too far out for my tastes (i prefer flush with the bottom...in other words not having stick out so damn far). other than that i like it. :thumbsup:

    Yeah, one thing I've read on the net about the Tsudos is they stick out a little far...Definitely not a huge problem though...i can't get over how f00kin' awesome it sounds...


    Of course, 70hp probably isn't too noisy....hrm....

    Nice. I should've gone with a catback like that instead of the custom 2 1/4" with a Magnaflow muffler. Mines starting to sound like crap.

    I wouldn't say lucky...

    I'm like the one Jew who survived the holocaust, and whose family had life insurance, and after the war and everything he's left holding the insurance check and thinking 'Well shit...might as well spend it'...
