Gotcha. Did you ever get a chance to go to RS Adrenaline Academy?
Nope. But, I've been to other driving courses (Subaru, Nissan, and special gov't type).

A long time ago when I had a V6 Tiburon, I had a stainless MBRP CBE for that car and it was awesome. That exhaust had probably over 160k miles on it and was quality.

So for the Stinger, it sounds great, priced reasonbly, and if you choose the SS option, will be super durable. My question is how is the drone, if at all? It sounds "boomy" outside so I would think it is inside as well, unfortunately...

There's going to be some drone inside the car but if you install some car sound deadening mat it will almost take the noise away.

Hey everyone... This past weekend I upgraded from a 2018 to a 2020 GT2. I'm in the process of reinstalling my Tubi-style exhaust and trying to tap the rear fusebox in the trunk.

I am trying to power it from an "accessory" circuit so that it powers off when the car is turned off. On my 2018 the Tubi-Style ECU killed my battery multiple times; hence I have to power it from a fused circuit and not directly to the battery.

Anyone have any suggestions? I've tried multiple circuits and can not get the ECU any power at all. But it works fine if powered directly from the battery.

Any ideas/suggestions are much appreciate.

Can you run a relay where your power comes from the battery but the signal power come from the accessory?

Hmmm... Sounds like a good idea, though well beyond my electrical knowledge. Lol. I'll do some google searches.

Thanks!

I have the MBRP and it’s growly outside but no drone under constant throttle/normal driving inside

It’s perfect if you haven’t done a downpipe

Anyone else have any ideas on how to draw power properly from the rear fuse panel?

I've tried an "add-a-circuit" to no avail.

Thanks.

Well... I finally sat down, watched a few YouTube videos and figured it out. I used an Add-A-Fuse to tap the 30A ACC circuit, added a 10A circuit to power the Tubi-Style ECU. Now, whenever I turn the car off, the power goes off. No more dead batteries!

I'm going with ARK down-pipes and stock mufflers. Does anyone know of a good x-pipe that connects to the downpipes and to the stock mufflers?

You might be better off asking an exhaust shop to make one for you if that’s all you’re looking to do.

I just installed a thermal R&D - from the audio clips and overall design it seems quite similar to the MBRP, however a little more $ and no X crossover. The Thermal is polished 304 SS
