I am wanting to go with the cat delete as well. And have heard good things about MBRP, was it easy to install?

Need a sawsall to remove the OEM. But the install is very easy. Just dont tighten anything up till everything is in place we didnt read the instructions very well and started from the rear and snugged everything down pretty good and got up to the turbo and was off by several inches, need alot of play in every joing till all is in then go back and tighten down. Took @ a hour ...

I bought the Diamond Eye and it was delivered to my door for $299. Was fairly simple to piece together once I got all the hangars and **** figured out. The biggest PITA was getting the mouth of the down-pipe up behind the turbo. Had to loosen up the up-pipe which gave me just enough clearance to squeeze the DP in there. Once everything was all in, had to make zero adjustments for knocking or rattling... first time ever for any exhaust I've installed. The sound is excellent. Not too obnoxious but it sounds like a tuned mustang when you lay into it. I really like it. For $300, you can't beat the Diamond Eye.

I went ahead and ordered the MBRP. Sounds like they make a product that goes in fairly simple, I will probably regret saying this before I install But ended up getting it for $325 with the cat delete. I thought that wasn't too bad.

Good call on the MBRP. I've got the 5" straight pipe muff delete kit turbo back and she whistles like no other. I put an 8" tip on there too so now she looks mean!
