My exhaust from the turbo back is now all Elevate brand parts. My exhaust has the non-resonator option, and here are some comments about the entire system's livability.
I am getting better gas mileage than before, so while it may be a performance mod, it also helps at the pump. In addition, the ability to go 30-120 on an on-ramp is pretty sweet too.
2) IT'S NOT LOUD.
Seriously people, unless the warm-up period in the morning is something your HOA will sue you over, it's fairly quiet and (almost) entirely drone-free. The only issue comes between 1500-1800 rpm in higher gears (5&6). On the hwy it's hardly audible above road noise (unless you're accelerating).
3) The new tip is much smaller than the old one.
Which, incidentally, was called obscene by more than one person I knew.
4) It's 49 state legal.
Take THAT, OBX!
5) Don is a nice man.
