Here yall go, again not best video quality but at least it gives you an idea of what it sounds like
that sounds really good to me, sound coming from the video is great too, much better than some exhaust video's some people have filmed

here's the video embedded:

That explains it! New phones like that have great cameras which for a purpose like this, really helps, clearly!
Would you ever consider deleting the resonators?

I would consider it but if i chose to do that, i would run pipes further back because right now there is a lot of drone and some vibration inside due to the open piping right under the back seats! if you read the first post on the thread it will explain somewhat of what my plans are for the exhaust.

Now that is awesome.
How much do you figure you might end up spending in the end for the setup your trying to configure here?

Well seeing as the mufflers were lets just say $300 for round numbers.... and i'm just cut and re welding (so using stock piping) I cant see the work being over $150....

Possibly around $450-500


Now if it isnt loud enough I will take it back and have them cut the two resonators out and re weld piping in its place... but for now we will see how it sounds with just mufflers added. Should be done by end of next week and ill post videos/pics to get opinions!

One question though. Who thinks i should do the tips at an angle like the actual RCF or should i just have them level ? I am debating.

I think if you try to do it how it's done on the RC-F, it might look like you're trying too hard to make it look like something it's not.

Plus it will be nice to see an aftermarket exhaust that sits level on an RC.
