on the first page, the BB downpipe + APR catback.. is that a BB catless or catted downpipe?
Will removing the resonator on the stock exhaust help at all or be worse for performance? Or be the same? i dont really want to spend alot of money on exhaust and dont want it too loud just alittle bit. So i was thinking to remove the resonator and get different exhaust tips. Will i lose performance though?

so after perusing this thread, I'm super torn between the apr tbe and the eurojet.
I really like the sound of the apr, but am not a fan of the price. Also the fitment issues make me nervous. The fact that it sits low and may be a bit difficult to install, because i will be attempting to do it myself.
The eurojet seems pretty great as well, decent price, seems to fit well and looks pretty good. But i want that sound that stands out and im wondering if the EJ is too tame for my liking. cant get over the apr sound.
any thoughts comparing these two directly?
I have the APR TBE and I honestly can't reccomend it. The downpipe is great but the catback just isn't worth it IMO. The APR catback is ridiculously expensive for something that is barely louder than stock. The best I could get the fitment was one tip sticking out 1/4" more than the other. I ended up spending another $225 at an exhaust shop to remove the forward resonator and cut/reweld the hangars so that the rear section sits higher and is even.
My advice is get the APR downpipe and get a custom catback. This is the first car I ever bought an off the shelf exhaust for and I will never do it again. Custom exhausts fit better and you can get whatever sound you want, whatever tips you want, etc. Plus the fitment will be better. Chances are it will be less expensive too.
