      Custom exhaust

      Hello all, it's time to start looking for a cat back exhaust. I am currently running the IPD downpipe, I had the IPD cat back but the drone was too much. Has anyone built their own and what muffers did you all use?

      Thanks!

      Usually people do NOT recommend iPD's solutions for the reasons you mentioned above, as well as quality issues.

      Here is my exhaust which I literally just constructed yesterday:



      It utilities a stock downpipe and cat from a S70 with an angle flange (I also upgraded my turbo to angle flange, breathes better this way). Then I connected it to a Simmons touring exhaust system, it is about as quiet as stock at idle and highway speeds, but comes alive when you step on the gas. You can get the touring exhaust from Skandix, mine took about a week to come from Germany.

      No idea if your iPD downpipe will connect correctly.

      you need to add the ball coupler to connect anything good to the IPD dp. Call Rolling Motors; they have a solution for this. I am going to be running a Simons exhaust on my 850R using this method to connect it to a 3" IPD DP.
