I FRIGGEN HAPPY! Stealer wanted $80 just to put on the muffer (mandatory 1 hr. minimum labor crap)
: What did I think. First thing after he brought it down from the rack was to have him rev the engine while I was behind the car. It sounded GREAT!
: No, I'll admit, the first reason I wanted to get the DINAN was because I was told it wasn't too loud and it only really opens up when your on the throttle. WELL, when I pulled away my firzt impression where that the Note changed but it didn't really get louder. I'll admit I was a little disappointed becase I thought from other people descriptions that when I hit around 5K-7K rpm that this baby would REALLY open up "get louder". Well it didn't. SO first thing, If you want the exhaust to be NOTICABLY louder I would stear away from the DINAN. However, the note this exhaust produces is PERFECT. I mean my engine really sounds like a perfectly tuned race machine now! It sound EXTRA nice from 3K- 4.5K rpm in 2nd and third. Really throaty growl. It's NEVER obnoxious.
: Don't get me wrong, it is LOUDER. This was observes in the driving next to a bunch of garages and underneath a bridge tests. How technical huh? In some underpassed I couldn't help put to downshift and punch it the the results where QUITE pleasing. I know it seems stupid but I've got a little riceboy inside of me (or would it be krautboy?) that wants a slightly obnoxious exhaust. But either way I'm very happy with it's new sound and slightly added volume.
: If you want to get an exhaust that makes your car sound PURR fect. The Dinan is a strong contender.(I'd say best since it sounds PERFECT to me but I have nothing to compare to) If your looking for something a little more obnoxious I would look elsewhere.
