    Factory exhaust will handle a BT, so why bother spending money on a CAT-back if you are against the extra added noise, CAT-back only adds noise in less you are trying to make BIG power which on that BT you will not.

    The Greddy exhaust is NOT loud, trouble is finding them but I think there out there still.

    I may just leave the stock exhaust and see how that sounds with the Mountune MRX 6258. I'm going to do a meth system first and get that piece of the puzzle functioning.

    I've just upgraded motor/Turbo/gearbox, buy I had 100k on my previous set-up, which was:

    2867 gen-1 (Speed By Design Red Series)
    CpE small core
    E40 stratified tune
    2 port stratified xtra fuel kit
    MBRP catless DP
    MBRP people series exhaust
    CPE lower mount
    & Few other things

    With this set up I dyno'd at 400 at the wheels. The car was excellent daily driver. I drive similar to you, but I do WOT pulls every day. I installed the turbo at 29k and the xtra fuel kit and re-tune @ 59k. The only issue I ever had was the stock clutch started slipping a bit as I closed in on 100k. Oh....and I drive 130 miles round trip to work a day.

    I found the car really fun to drive, and would do it again if i bought it new. The only reason i changed set-up is because i got a great deal on rebuilt motor with forged pistons and head work, and a 7163, so when it was time to swap the clutch I just swapped everything, and shooting for >500 at the wheels.

    I would recommend the 2867 set up with an e85 mix of it's available for you.

    Btw..the exhaust note is very mild. There is a touch of drone, but it's not bad imho.
