    Which catback lets you hear the turbo the most?

    The videos of the borla seem to be the only ones that pick up turbo sound but I'm considering the magma flow as well. If there is one that makes the more pronounced let me know too.

    well obviously but that's why I'm asking about a cat back with stock down pipe. I m going to wait until my warranty expires to do that.

    Most likely catback will drown out the turbo sound with noise since the catback won't help it breathe much better than the stock system. If you want turbo sounds throw on a high flow/green filter and take the lid off your airbox. You won't go back and you won't affect the warranty (no guarantees I'm not liable if you suck a bird into your airbox or something ridiculous)

    I'm not necessarily after hearing while on the throttle. I get what you guys are saying about the catback drowning it out. What I noticed about the borla was when you let off the throttle the videos are picking up the turbo spooling down which if the videos pick it up I'm sure it's very noticeable in person.

    I don't care so much about hearing the turbo...I want the crackles. So Borla seems to also fulfill that. Anything better for that than the Borla?

    Buy one Stratified Auto's crackle tunes. The aggressive one. You'll pop on stock exhaust.

    I don't have an AP yet, but I thought about that. Only thing is, isn't that likely to burn out my cat? I've also been holding back on a downpipe because of that. But I've only had the car for a month and a half, so I'm sure in a few months I'll be reconsidering this.

    It can, anytime you increase the fuel being burned in your exhaust system you run the risk of fouling your cat quicker than normal
