      ordered this exhaust and it should be in over the weekend,

      full write up coming once i get it and can take pics,


      only 2.5, with a res/muffler.

      stainless

      I could find no one running this on an Avant, so this could get dicey and the seller couldnt tell me
      if it would fit.

      lets give it a go! lol

      Just wanna throw out there that it is 2.3 in not 2.5. But either way it looks quality, get up some clips!

      UPDATE!

      RAI 3in testpipe with 02 extension and new downpipe and exhaust installed.











      before adjusting and final setup






      fitment was good, no issues with the hardware i was sent. all hangers were in correct spots and it was the correct length.
      I believe iam the first Avant to run one...
      i dont have pics of the testpipe installed but it does have an "02 extension" but my cel came on today... i'd have to imagine its for a cat or 02 code. prob been about 100 miles since install.
      sound is good, deep and all lag that was in the car before is gone.

      iam def happy with my new set up.

      i will be making a thread to help detail the product itself in the next few days.

      came out good, did it with some scraps i had laying around.









      looks great installed.

      got the neuspeed TIP installed with cone filter.

      I modded the factory heat shield to work with it. Pretty nice.

      I notice some difference in power, throttle response is much quicker.

      Lot louder.. still running the stock DV.

      this was a pic while i was working on it...




      and btw... its a bitch to put in. lol
