Stock downpipe is why it's quiet. Don't gut it, replace it.

And those are stock headlights.

Yea I cant decide whether I like the sound of catless downpipe with the hks, or the hiflow catted cob or invidia downpipe with the hks downpipe.
and yea I know, I want to get a catless up pipe but i havnt had time to buy one and then swap them out. I kinda want to wait till i can just get a down pipe too so I can throw it all together at the same time.

Unless you are prepared to deal with the possible issues of boost spike/creep just go catted. Some have issues with it and some dont. If you do get it, it can be a real headache. Sometimes it can be tuned out and sometimes not. Gains are minimal with a catless downpipe. The catless uppipe is a great mod on the 02-05's though. Not only does it open up flow but, the cat can also start to break up and if it does the first place it goes is into your turbo. Not good!

Yea i know about the up pipe cat being a pipe bomb. Hence why its first on my list of things to swap. Ive been reading that on 02 n 03s you can get away with a catless downpipe without a tune. Um going to get an AP anyways, but i might swap the pipes first. Im going for invidia catless up and megan racing belmouth catless dp

I have the megan. Some say they are cheap but, I'm very happy with mine. Thick flanges, nice welds, mirror finish, and perfect fitment.

I dont think its too loud (but I like it loud). helix might be a little better quality though. both should mate up to the hks just fine. Nothing wrong with the megan but I would go with the helix.

I was running the Megan catless in the video, I returned back to the stock DP for inspection along with reflashed stage 1 AP.
But with the stock DP still sounds badass.

The headlights are stock like Fatal said, I just have the eyelids on them.

Good luck man.

Cobb Accessport Stage 2.
JDM ej205 swap.

Hakuna Matata.

I remember when a CB was a radio.

All right, where is the distributor cap? I need to find the #1 plug wire to hook up my SUN machine.
