Surprised by GXP Exhaust on 2.4L
From the day I bought my base model, I knew it would have to have a dual exhaust. I immediately came on the forum and learned that the GXP exhaust will pretty much bolt right up except for the rear fascia. So I ordered the fascia and began browsing the forum. Sure enough I found one relatively close. I installed it today and I think it looks way better...it really evens out the back end.
However, I was very surprised by how much different it sounds. I figured the base and GXP exhausts were pretty much the same with an extra tip welded on the GXP exhaust...however, it sounds completely different. Its definitely louder, deeper, and more raspy. It has more popping on decel and a bit more resonance as well. I dont feel like the power is any different (I didnt expect it to be though).
Overall, I like the look and sound of it! Im impressed that a relatively inexpensive mod can change the car so much!
