Installed the ARM downpipes on Friday. No issues with installation and fitment was good. Installed within 50 minutes.

Hi Mike - The combination of the 3 is a bit loud for my taste, and ironically, everyone else likes it except for me.

Too much other performance and maintenance priorities before I feel less guilty dropping money on a set of $1k+ EL pipes, so instead I will look to add additional resonators to my setup to get it closer to my taste.

Based on video clips, I think my ideal setup would be a resonated dp + resonated el mp

Are you still running this set up? I see below you mentioned it was a bit loud. Do you happen to have any sound clips/videos? This is the exact setup I have my eyes on since I already own the Dinan rear.

I have their catted downpipes on mine and it sounds great (running the M4 GTS Exhaust). They look good too. The aluminum pan did need to be pushed out just a little bit, other than that the fitment was good. I have some reviews and clips with them. I'll track them down and put them in here. For the price I figured I would give them a shot and have been pleasantly surprised. Is there a better downpipe, almost certainly, but for the price they are great, I just suggest swapping the bolts that come with it for stainless ones.

Yes, still running the setup. Actually grew on me as well as others. Here's a morning cold start clip.

I agree 100%, that sounds great. Thank you for sharing the clip! I would love to hear it at higher RPM's but this is a good start.

Soon ... car's under the knife for a clutch upgrade and my plan is to put out another exhaust video of this setup once my tuner pushes rolling anti-lag out to me 😎 ... that way you get the pops & burbles plus high rpms all in one clip.

Is that with a resonated or non-resonated EL midpipe?

So I have the Resonated EL and ZCP exhaust and was debating on getting the resonated ARM or non resonated.

I am worried it will be too quiet, are they at least louder than OEM catted? Would you also recommend going for both resonated? It's sounding pretty right!!

I was in the same boat as you. I went with resonated since Iím not a fan of rasp & volume is still pretty much the same as non res but louder than catted. If you want loudest, go non res but know you will introduce rasp during cold starts & high rpms.

I recommend the ARM resonated downpipe in your case, it still sounds very aggressive without the caless rasp
