Default Fast Intentions Exhaust

One word Wow! Installed the fast Intentions 18" exhaust this weekend and damnnnnnn!!! you tube videos of this exhaust just dont do it justice. the sound is very aggressive when pushing it and mellow at idle and when just cruising. The car feels much smoother now. Still breaking in the exhaust and resetting the computer so havent noticed a huge difference in power but i am sure it will get better, plus my car still only has 3400 miles. In the looks dept. it really stands out from behind with all that polished steel and those pretty polished tips. It came boxed in tons of bubble wrap and cardboard to protect fit from the careless UPS guys. Taking off the exhaust was no problem and installing the new one not a problem either, what took a little time was what to do with the shield that protects the fuel lines. The instructions say the update was to bend it back in the corner vs cutting it in half. Well i bent it back and thats all it took. What took a whole lot of time was trying to get my 3ton floor jack under the car and its not even lowered, had to use my 2 1/4 ton jack then fit the 3 ton under to raise it higher, what a pain in the *** cause there atleast to me is not very many places to raise up at that wouldnt damage something underneath. Customer service is top notch! Every time i talked to Tony i was never rushed even though i am sure he was very busy. He walked me through what would be best for me based on what i wanted. Every time i called to check on the status of my order it was never a problem, just about as nice an experiance as you would expect! Thanks Tony very happy customer here!!!

Welcome to the club!

I have put about 2 tanks of gas through my new exhaust ~700 miles. And I love this thing. I every time I drive. And I do love to break peoples necks when they snap to look at my car. Or when people ask what kind of engine I have and I just say a V6 and there like really? a V6.

The FI exhaust sounds even better as you put some miles on it. I have about 3000 on mine since the install last fall, and the tone has gotten more complex with more burble on the downshifts and when laying off the throttle. Enjoy yours, Mark!

Yup, once the pack settles and gets broken in, it definately got a lot quieter and more refined. <3

Looovvee my Fast Intentions once the car warms up. When cold it can be a bit loud, but that only lasts a minute. In fact, I set off my first car alarm yesterday

Wow!

I start mine up right next to my Mazda all the time and never get it to set off the alarm! Annoy the neighbors, wake sleeping dogs, create nuclear fission yes, but I've never set off an alarm. I'm jealous!
