Hi, I have the OBX exhaust...the sound is nice...a little deep, but definatly not rice. I noticed power in lift, as well as a small amount low end. For the price, I would say go for it. =)

how much does the system cost for the GT. If the gains are good, then go for it. I have TSRM and I love, wouldn't change if for anything.

Yea, I got the OBX Exhaust. Its nice as far as quality goes and I noticed a much better acceleration at lower RPM's. And bein' that im not all that flashy with my car im happy that to say its doesnt have that high pitched typical sound. It has more of a low growl like someone else said and I like it but wouldn't have minded if it was a little louder in my opinion. One other thing is after I mounted it and all i noticed that the back part of the exhaust tip rattles against the right hand tow hitch thing. I'll probably just get some type of rubber adhesive and put it on the hitch thing and that should solve the problem. I think the shitiest part of installing it was getting them damn mounting point out of the bushings. I basically just took some lubricant and sprayed it in the bushing and with needle nose plyers just pulled them off. it was fun actually. I did it all in less then two hours and with no shirt on so i have gravel back. lol. later!

By the way, I think the list price for the exhaust is a lil' under 500.00 but I got it off of Ebay for 300 and that included shipping.

Is a dyno a part of the exhaust or something or are you asking what the dyno results are? If your asking about results of a dyno then I don't know.

Sorry, no Dyno...as far as the butt dyno counts...for teh 170 $ i got it from ebay for, New...im not complaining. It is an improvment over stock, sure its not the best out there, never said it was, but it intimidates the competition, and isnt that the point =)

By the way...just remove the toe hook in the back that is in the way that rubs...honestly i dont know how you installed it with it on there , i took mine off...its useless
