I had my AFE Exhaust installed today. My initial thought is wow this thing is loud inside the car. Even with the windows up. It sounds smooth but loud. I am hoping after the first week of breaking in it will quiet down a little. I do notice the power. Its there. Can really feel it in 3rd and 4th gear. Seems like I get to the red line so much faster I am happy with the look because it has a stock but aggressive look to it. More to come and video to come as well.

Yea that was my initial thought too.. but it quiets down to a steady soft rumble when cruising at a steady speed... I dont know if I got used to it or it did in fact get quieter lol, but I have the Takeda intake and AFE TBS so it probably is a little louder than yours.. I dont know if you have experienced this but it seems when you punch it, its deeper/loud at lower RPMs and kinda quiets down/you hear the engine over the exhaust more at the higher RPMs.. I dont know if I make sense but anyways.. I can feel the power difference too and am happy with it.

nice setup all aFe. how is the power gain, significant? i would think with a downpipe and tune this engine can get some great gains.

Its nice to know that it may quiet down. Its only been on my car for about 4 hours now and 2 of them my car was parked. Tomorrow I will be able to really see what its about. I have the Injen Cold air intake on my car as well. Baby steps to a faster Si.

I added one more pic sorry its blurry.

Yea I was their R&D for for the K24 sedan so they hooked it up big time with free parts..lol.. I can feel a power gain as far as it being more torquier/more responsive..I was messing around with a co worker who has a v6 mustang I got up to 130mph pretty easy and my car felt like it wanted to keep on going but I slowed down.. but overall im happy with my butt dyno readings...lol

Looks really good. But isn't it 2.5" instead of 3"?

I ask because I want to eventually go turbo and 2.5" would be to small. This K24 would be amazing all motor with 2.5" and even 3" exhaust.

Yes it is a 2.5. However I think I am going to take it off. Way to loud inside. I need to see if AFE does returns.
