Really nice videos you're doing there! I really wanna thank you personally because I had to watch a few of your videos during the installation of my SRI and my tranny oil change. It helped me a lot.

I'll watch this one again for sure on next spring when I'll install my J-pipe!

LOL Guudentight. Todd you've got some DIY filming skills. Unfortunately I have to wait a bit longer to buy this, but after you drive the car a few more days post up a review of different driving situations. When I get this I'll hvae the same performance mods as you so I'm looking forward to reading what you think. Nice video as always.

PS love the lower grille:thmsup:

Good job!! great write up.

I did mine but there was no way i was going to be able to show a diy.

Mine was so rusted out it was a shame on how i did it. It took me foreevvver to get out. all of my bolts were rusted. PB blasted it three times, nothing. I had to use 13MM and tap it in with a hammer. then breaker bar it out. I had the studs come out from the Pre cats (headers) with the bolts. wasnt going to rouch those again, so i went to the dealer and got 3 new studs. about 5 bucks each. tightened them back and was good. Install was like 10 minutes.... removal is a PITA!! but well worth it

Nice vid, but I was surprised you didn't do a before and after of how the car sounded. Is it quite a bit louder now?

Yeah, I got a few requests on sound before/after. I should note that I don't have a cat-back exhaust, and I don't plan on one in the near future. So, I'm running stock exhaust out the back end. Plus, I'm recording on my digital camera - the mic is pretty low quality.

And honestly, I really didn't notice a real significant difference with the J-Pipe. Granted, I have a SRI so when I get on it a bit I hear that more than anything.

I like the fact that it really didn't change the exhaust sound much (there is a little bit more aggression). There some youtube vids where a guy with a 7th gen did a before/after and a bunch of people commented "I can't tell the difference".

I have a very nice compression mic that I will set up and do a sound byte or two. But don't get your hopes for some drastic change. I know it has only been a day, but I didn't notice anything significant. And I'm kinda happy about that :)

Stock exhaust here as well.. P2R TBS and Takeda SRI as well. My commentary (after a week+ of having it on) is exactly the same as Todd's. You'd be hard pressed to notice the difference.

I installed the Takeda and TBS *after* the J-pipe ..so I had a different comparison..from dead stock w/ J-pipe to this setup now.

It just feels like the car can breath & exhale properly... Bring on the PCD's richie! lol

todd,

as always nice video man..

You really wouldn't notice much difference in exhaust tone from the oem exhaust, i know for aftermarket exhaust system there is a huge change in exhaust tone, much more aggressive, w/ much less drone. :)

Installation of the RV6 V3 requires removal of the 3rd catalytic converter (illegal), good luck finding a legit shop who will do that.
