Would it work on the MSM(turbo and downpipe etc) and not sound like pure rice ? :p

It's hard to make a turbo car sound ricey, so i'd imagine you'd be ok. :)

Rest of the exhaust stock besides the downpipe?

I think FM downpipe, 2.5" piping, a resonator/inline muffler, and an HKS can would probably sound pretty decent.

It's pretty hard to make an MSM sound outright BAD.

I'm not happy with mine, but it does sound GOOD. (It's just not loud enough.)

All you need is a muffler on an MSM... no cat, no res, no bullshit. It will sound great. Trust me.

They sound awesome with only a turbo muffling... straight pipe.

I'm guessing that's why mine is so quiet.

I could have sworn someone sells a downpipe without a cat... Might be Begi.


And i have a full FM system, turbo back.

Don't get me wrong, it sounds incredible, it's just real quiet. I'm not big on being the loudest thing around or anything, but the bark currently does not match the bite.

You can weld on a spark plug defouler the size of the o2 sensor. That's what I did for mine.




You will need to port the wastegate inlet to avoid boost creep without a cat... and probably add a resistor to eliminate boost cut.
