So I was looking at something cheap to bring out some more engine sound, and seeing that the only option was near 700 bucks I decided to go a different route and have some fun.
So I got some Mandrel bended J-Bends with a Magnaflow Y and some SS 3.5" tips.
Before I did all this, I made a turn down and tried the muffler delete

The Exhaust has to break in, so some of this might change-
With the Muffler delete added, it got louder. Its droning a bit now, but hopefully that should calm down after break in.
Now with the Turbo kicked in you can hear the nice subbie note
In total I spent 240 bucks, this will hold me off for a while then I will get something else.
