I don't know if it matters much in your decision making, but I just put this on my 3.8.

It was a really tight fit, but I'm really impressed with the build quality. And the sound is perfect. Loud enough to make a statement, but not obnoxiously so.

how was installation on it? i can't decide between the injen and 7ism.
If you take a look at the piping design between Injen and 7ism, you'll see that they are nearly identical! Performance gains, fitment and quality are also very similar--though Injen has a slight edge here because the workmanship is a little better. (i.e. The welds are immaculate!) The biggest advantage though is that Injen is a few HUNDRED dollars less. Plus, Injen manufactures right here in the good 'ol USA, whereas 7ism is made in Korea. So basically, even if Injen and 7ism were perfectly equal in every comparison, the fact that the price is so much better is definitely a big plus for you. ;)

Oh and, Injen also offers their exhausts in a polished tip too. If you don't like the blue "burnt-style" tips, then we can always do standard chrome.

On the 2.0T there is a fair amount of room for the exhaust, mine was done on a jack took about an hour. The 2.0 sounds about the same, sounds better once the turbo kicks in:hsugh:

Can't really go wrong with this exhaust man.

If it helps your decision, I've been looking at most of the options and Injen is my second preferred choice due to the layout. cp-e is my first preferred choice. The winner however will have to be decided by a battle between two bikini-clad women in a pit of mud, because I can't make a choice (and no matter who wins that battle, I still win).

ARK is too loud and hangs too low, 7ism, DC Sports, and HKS Legamax are too similar to stock in format, Tanabe doesn't rumble and is pretty pricey (but it's my third choice), Tsudo has a funky layout, Agency Power seems like it would favour the driver side port, and the GReddy single looks too ricey with the sharply angled tailpipe.

I have the Injen exhaust and love it. I have a lot of videos of it, just the catback and also many with my new TurboXS downpipe. It sounds very nice and deep, not too loud.

I have the quad tip catback exhaust and I love it. Looks sexy and has a deep tone just too quiet ;)

good to know. thanks alot! The one thing i like about the 7ism is not many ppl have it. Also, they have a connector bracket or something that you can see under the car that looks super sick. But the price is alot better and I have had injen products on my Lexus IS300 and i liked them alot. If you could let me know your price for that exhaust that would be awesome. I have ordered a few parts from you guys already, so if you could let me know your price that would help. I'm looking to get the exhaust done in the next few weeks here. Thanks for the help!

I was ready to get this until I realized the input of the down pipe is only 2.5". So most downpipes out there are stepped down to go into the resonator. Most down pipes and all 02 pipes are 3". Ark has the same limitation.

If they redesign it to have 3" inlet, I will be all over it but I don't want to go from a 3" pipe into a 2.5". I may also if someone comes out with a good 2.5" down pipe and 02 pipe.

I am not talking about after the resonator mind you which is dual 2.5" so that is plenty big. It only has a single pipe into the resonator which is 2.5" also.

I doesn't drop to 2.5 for long then it splits to dual 2.5.

Where are your videos? How is the drone inside the cabin? That is my biggest concern and not super loud.

No, there wasn't any aftermarket down pipe on that car in the video. Injen designed their exhausts to be quiet, so even with a down pipe, it will be similar to in the video.

Yeah I have a downpipe with my Injen exhaust now and it's still pretty quiet. It's just a lot deeper now and pops/backfires at high rpm shifts :)

My youtube channel is in my signature for anyone that wants to see my videos.
