    My exhaust (now 3 months old) appeared to be a bit lower this afternoon, so I had a look underneath- the mount just in front of the passenger rear tire is ripping loose, leaving a hole in the exhaust. I suspect I can get it repaired, but, even if its only 20 bucks, I dont think I should have to...

    Many thanks to Joe (BoeserBlick) for taking the shots. Sorry for the dirty car. :oops: This is the "quiet" exhaust system, and I had them mount 3.5" resonated oval tips and cut the bumper.

    Anyone have "fitment" problems with their catback system? I think I got a "bad flange in the batch" from Brullen. They (brullen) said they would continue warranty any fitment or problems from altering the piece. I tink Im safe but other experiences?

    As topic says, I finally installed it since the weather was nice (~40F). My old system was a PITA to remove but after that , install was fairly straigh forward. I still need to tweek the cutout which I started small at first. It fits with about 1/2"on either side and about 3/8" on top(I'll trim...

    Of the almost 30 people in this forum who have the Brullen exhaust from various group buys or bought at full retail price, I'm sure ONE of you must have a before and after dyno showing the power/torque difference.
