    Lol
    I did not realize it was you car , nice
    If you do not have the part numbers on the bill check if the size of the mufflers and tips (did the tips come separate or already on?) is written and post a picture of the mufflers
    its pretty straightforward to find the model number with that info

    That's the Vermont Tuning turbo back. I love the way it sounds. So much turbo sound. I remember hearing this was just a test and that fitment was nowhere near complete. The final product apparently looks much better.

    I hope so, those mufflers look waaaaay too low.

    so i couldnt find the number on the reciepts
    the mufflers are about 15 inches long. the pipes going into the mufflers are at 3 inch diameter if i remember right?
    i also uploaded a few more vids of the interior while driving. theyre not good vids by any means but they will give you an idea of what it sounds from the inside.
    (wasnt easy driving MT and holding the phone at a better angle so this lame angle will have to do)

    If you are serious about it, e-mail Brian. I talked with him briefly about a custom exhaust. What caught my eye was an improved Y-Pipe that happened to show up in a another picture.

    Dude, you ROCK! Thank you. I'll call your shop and see if they remember. They nailed it! Hell, I'll even give them the business if they can. That would really help me love my car even more.

    Re: Any exhaust reviews?

    Are they putting the stock downpipe back on for dev testing? I'm interested in the catback but am very particular about tone and want absolutely zero drone. I'll be running the stock DP.

    You will be able to order just a downpipe back exhaust, or turbo back. Downpipe back exhaust will bolt right to the factory downpipe

    ----------

    Once they give me the ok, I will post up pics and video clips. I will do in car sound clips at cruise, WOT, also get better sound clips while car is on the dyno!

    These are satin finish so they're universal mufflers
    One of the standard size for Magnaflow is 14" (next up is 18") so that's what it should be and your tips look like 4" so looking at the video and extrapolating from that your mufflers should be 5x8 ovals and finally it look like a center/center offset

    So if they used 3" (3"is overkill unless you plan on doing a full line replacement with down pipes IMO) part number would be 12219
    I'm thinking of using the same model but 2.5 inch part # 12216

    one thing i did notice is that the pipe going into the muffler is not centered in the oval. its more to the side. and the pipe exiting in the rear of the muffler is center


    but regarding OP, as far as a review goes, heres my small review on my setup.

    i literally could not be happier with my car after this. when i got it, it sounded way too quiet and being an MT car, i had to constantly look at the RPM so i know when to shift. i couldnt hear or feel the engine rpm at the time. the exhaust really made the car sound much much better. i was very worried it would sound like a rice rocket or a fart can (all my un-informed friends would make fun of me before i got the exhaust with "its gonna sound like a honda ricer, bla bla bla"). but when the shop called me and i went to see it, i couldnt believe my ears. it sounded amazing. worth every penny in my opinion. of all the mods to do on this car, this one was the most beneficial for me. the only problem i had with the car was the engine sound of the 2.0. if i had to do it again, i would do this mod every single time.

    The shop is called OC Muffler Man
    I spoke earlier with lee and he confirmed that they used a 3" midpipe section feeding 2 Magnaflow 4x9 Center/Offset 2 1/4" mufflers, (11226)
    all piping is mandrel bent and the total job with tips like Donavo will run you around $550
