      Who has a custom exhaust on their 2.0 T5?

      I know I have asked this before but I am looking to do a catback on my V60 and I am wondering what people are running for mufflers and how they sound? The exhaust shop that would be doing it said they would do a muffler delete along with the larger piping but I feel like that would be way too loud for daily use. Does anyone here have a deleted muffler? Thank you

      When I installed my downpipe, I ran it with just the downpipe and did not connect the catback exhaust. It was VERY LOUD and sounded like a tractor due to it being a 4 cyl. I would recommend an aftermarket muffler instead of removing it all the way. I think it would still be too loud for daily use if straight piped after the resonator, but would be alright if that is what you want.

      That's what I was thinking too. I just don't know how any of them sound on this motor. I was thinking Magnaflow but then all of this adds into the cost of the exhaust although I would rather do it right

      Well, here is the video of my car on jack stands. You probably need a subwoofer to get a real idea of what it sounds like as small speakers make it really tame. And remember, the rpm is locked at 4k in park so no cool noises. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cXnx...ature=youtu.be

      That sounds awesome! What brand muffler did you use? I know mine would sound a bit different without the larger downpipe but I like how yours sounds

      There is no muffler, just the downpipe attached to the turbo. The exhaust is venting directly under the front seats.
