Whether its worth the cost can be debated, but I don't see it as a "stupid purchase"
You and I are on the same page.

Don't argue with idiots mate, they'll bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

I heard the stock piping is pretty good already so there I don't think I need a full cat back. Plus, u won't make huge amount of power unless u get a new tune anyways so who cares. lol its all preference.

On a load bearing Super Flo Dyno I saw over 6.5whp and 20ft lbs of tq. For under $1000 and bone stock otherwise, I think that's excellent.

I love the people on these forums that just spew bullshit out of their mouths. No facts, no data just ignorance!

Take the stock cat-back off and you'll see how "pretty good" it is.

Well, it can be improved upon, that is for sure.

But for a stock system, despite it being heavy and crazy quiet, it is fairly straight in the places that count and mostly 3" throughout. 3" is pretty beefy for a stock system.

Did you have to remove that support bracket when you installed your cat-back?

At the time, it was for development, will take pictures of the install when production unit comes in.

Even if you do have to remove the bracket, it comes off easily and quickly.

Yeah I already removed the bracket. It doesn't fit back on because of the 3in piping, stock piping is crushed in that spot.

I think it was 38 lbs. That is the weight of the unit from where the midpipe was cut in my picture above with the exhaust off the car.

a little video about the dynamics of my car (Racelogic):
winter -15 C
tyres 225\45 R18 Bridgestone Revo GS
wheels are skidding to 80 km \ h
212 kw on wheels
5.4 c 100 km\h
