I got my Elise with a 2Bular exhaust, cat, and panel delete, sounds great. Sent Jim an e-mail when a hanger cracked, to ask a few questions, he gave me some useful information, and was in general very helpful.
Yeah I really do like my von hep. Im never happy with anything but the von hep was my first mod and i have not changed it....yet. Best part for me since i live in cali is that its not polished so the police think its stockrotfl
Well, I already ordered the Larini 8" can muffler with the Larini silenced de-cat pipe as well as that eliminator 3. Didn't notice the AreaP info until today. Oh well. I think all of these are good products.
I installed the exhaust (Larini 8", single tip, above diffuser w/ Larini baffled decat) last weekend.
I should first give another huge thanks to Eric (chotto) for helping my wimpy butt. First, I couldn't get one of the header bolts off (where the exhaust meets the headers). Then I couldn't get them back on. He drove all the way across town twice to help me. There's no way I could have done it without him. Definitely owe him dinner and/or beer.
Anyway, after a week of driving with this setup, all I can say is, "WOW!" Even Eric said, "That's the way it should have sounded from the factory," when I fired it up the first time. The tone is much much deeper and richer. It is louder, but not much -- maybe a decibel or two (guessing). The entire RPM band sounds cleaner and meaner.
I'll post some pics as soon as I can get a stupid USB cable to fit my camera.
