So anybody heard anything about this exhaust? Saw it on CNT Racing's website, and this one is actually in stock. Can't really find out much about it. For the price is seems pretty tempting.

I myself was looking at the same. I called se performance who sells it as well and confirmed its 76mm (3inch) stainless pipe. I asked them if they've heard the exhaust and said its deeper then mbrp and little louder. I had a tsudo exhaust on my wrx back in the day and was pleasantly surprised. I want the roush but not paying 599 for non stainless so i guess ill be giving this a try.

400$ w free shipping for a 3" stainless exhaust, wow. If fitment is good, and it sounds ok, should be a steal. Looking at the design, I would guess it will drone a bit though. But, most other systems do too.

I might hop on this too since I've been waiting for CNT's V2 to get back in stock for weeks now. I'll definitely want to hear what your impressions are!

Good to hear. how long it take for you to get it? I order mine with a CNT catless down pipe on thursday. Just couldnt wait any longer for the CNT exhaust to get back in stock.

Shipping is pretty quick! I bought this exhaust on last Tuesday and it would have been delivered Saturday by FedEx but I wasn't informed I would need to sign for it so I was not home. It will be delivered later today! Hoping what you guys said about it being loader than the MBRP is right! I wanted roush but decided to save $200

Yea I got the text from FEDEX last night, mine is supposed to be delivered today, but i filled out the paper saying to put it on the back porch of the house, that way i don't have to be there to sign for it.

https://youtu.be/CtdUq4pX51E is the link to the installed tsudo exhaust on my 2014 exhaust. If you read what i wrote on the youtube chat itll further explain. Fit was 7 out of 10. Sound is 9 out 10. For 400 bucks very pleased. If i spent 600 or 1000 id be alittle upset with some minor fitment issues i needed to address but all in all im licking it. So your welcome for being the guinea pig. I will try and get a better sound clip and also a few while driving. Wifes at work and my dog all though talented doesnt know how to use my cell phone to record lol

Check to make sure you have a clamp for the center pipe cause mine came with 4 gaskets and 4 sets of bolts but the exhaust itself had 3 connections needing that and one where they bumped a section to just over 3 inch and the pipe slides in but nothing to seal that connection. Install piece that goes over suspension then rear section with tips. I would suggest placing tips in location you want before going further and just hand tighten all bolts. I was by myself so used a jack to place tips exactly where i wanted them. One of the exhaust hangers was bent incorrectly so i had to make a minor alteration. If your not mechanically inclined then maybe have an exhaust shop take care of it. Also the bracket that covers the exhaust tunnel is on the exhaust pipe. Little stuff like that
