just finished swapping out my one piece downpipe with hiflow cat. now im running a one piece downpipe with resonated testpipe. sounds much deeper and a tad bit louder. so it was a 15 minute drive from the buddy's shop back to my house and the backfire i notice is wicked loud.:rock:
and when i half throttle it around 3500rpm to about 5500rpm , i felt as if the pull was more pronounce and a bit more agressive.


what else should i expect from having this installed?

i heard backfire that sounded like pure sex but i was in front of my buddy's truck and i kept a close eye on it to see if there was a flash or not. so far nothing....which i think is good lol

anything else i should expect from running a testpipe?

-You should expect a gas smell occasionally at lights.
-Its a good idea to shut down your car if you get pulled over.
-Flames

-If you rev match, you'll definitely see flames all the time.

- havent smelled anything and if i did it soo faint.
- i wont get pulled over cuz im a very conservative driver
- waiting for a flame. heard backfires but not yet a flame.
- i have an MR so no true revmatch like a GSR can

Do you have the dp and res tp with the stock exhaust? Thats what i currently have and the only time i backfired is when i was at the track and i kept fitting fuel cut up from fuel starvation. Also i never noticed a sound difference at all since the stock mufflers were still there.

Unlike the flames..The black cloud is hard to miss behind you. I've had people think my car was on fire or just that it stinks real bad when u drop a cloud in front of someone lmao.
