Short, but damn was it loud. This is why I haven't been on much lately.

So did you just install the 18G Vew? The car sounds awesome, should run around town for awhile, see how long it takes for someone to stop you.

My first car (1990 firebird, car I had before this) had no mufflers on it when I first got it, and it was LOUD (pretty sure it was catted though). The highway drone was intense....you'd still hear it well with the radio up loud. Had to get mufflers on that thing, it was just too loud!

(This WRX, in comparison.....is too quiet with the stock exhaust, in my opinion.)

The video doesnt' really give how loud it was justice =p

Weird that it definately sounds louder (and raspier) than my cutout.

My buddy is here with his 05 GTO with Magnaflow full exhaust and he says it sounds better than his car. Yup, he's right!!!

I got the 18g on, but unfortunatly, I keep hitting some kind of fuel cut what feels like a rev limiter everytime I get on it. I'm in the process of finding the problem. We think it's a tuning issue, but could be a leak in the intake manifold. I ran around with it for about a day. Waaay too loud. Found out the wideband fits in my 2nd O2 sensor spot in my normal exhaust, so that's what we did.
