Stock Mid pipe Greddy axle back exhaust will be getting the CNT midpipe soon

Are you having any major flow or back pressure issues with the stock mid pipe and axle back exhaust? I am considering the Dezod 3" because of flow, but do not want loud or rasp. Personally I would rather sound almost stock + a BOV.

I'm having no major issues but you will be restricting alot of flow.

The stock pipe is only 1.75 in to 2 in. diameter

If you do use the stock pipe you will need a custom gasket to fit the down pipe to the stock mid pipe.

You will also get a burning smell from the CAT

Dezod's 3 inch exhaust would be the best option for power and flow but since I have a axle back already i'm just going to buy CNT's 2.5 inch mid pipe

True. In your setup, you are leaving 20-30whp on the table by not running our 3"

I got the carbon fiber engine cover from Amazon.

I'm selling my Dezod green header if you want a used header.

If you want a new header buy it from Dezod.com
