Fabspeed exhaust FULL

Recently, I did the entire fabspeed exhaust, headers, dual out muffler, etc
Verdict; FIRST CLASS
pros
fantastic fitment
ultra hi quality craftsmanship
sounds mean, no drone whatsoever

cons
the dual out is pretty loud, significantly less with single out version. I actually had decided to sell it, but a couple of events made me reconsider . I'll see how long I can stand the dual out, it's a little in the loud side.
oil line is a pain in the ass

In order to preserve my stock valence I utilized the rarelyl8 valence, fitted with the heat shield
I also applied nascar heat insulating tape above the muffler on the tin, as it might get hot.
Overall, highly recommended.
pics to follow

Yes those headers looked real nice, and the car sounded fine with the Borla. I bet it sounds better with the Fabspeed. Me thinks we have to meet at Crabtree this weekend for a showdown. JMHO

I'll post some pics later. Basically, perhaps this is slantnose specific, the oil line takes almost a 180 into the t stat in the pass side fenderwell, it didn't kink, but is less than optimal IMO.
I've run it for a few hundred miles now without issue. I tried to do hard lines, but couldn't find an adequate line to go from the crossover line into the t stat.

Tt - what is "loud" to you? Are you talking in the cabin, outside or both? Is there a drone effect at highway cruising speed?

last pic shows the oil line issue, yes these are the lines they supplied. Not close to the tire at all btw, picture is distorted a bit.

Good looking bottom. I think that oil line issue is a special case with your car. In fact your car is the only one I have seen with the oil cooler in the rear fender like that. I like it.

Looks great and something to be said for "one and done".
I'd like to check out sometime this summer when I'm back together.

Sure anytime.
I think fabspeed hit a homerun on all the 930 stuff.
One and done is right.

I swapped it back to single out for now until I get a proper rear valence .
I've had a lot of compliments on this system.
I've had several fs systems on other cars, this one was definitely a step above in fitment and quality.

if anybody is looking I have a drivers side out borla for sale.
excellent exhaust, good condition. Not as throaty as the fs, but good clean sound.

Alex
is there anyway to quiet the pass side exhaust when running dual out, internal fixture/reducer of some kind?

I'll share my extreme satisfaction as well with Fabspeed. I'm running the single out (passenger side). No droning, nice throaty sound, not too loud at all in the cabin but sounds like a sport- muffled Harley outside the car.
