Just trying to get more insight into the choices made by the group we have here.. sorry for the second thread but I would like to have these seperate for comparison. So, why not get this one?

according to abbott, their exhausts can add up to 6hp. If true, thats not bad at all. I actually dont like the way the dual tips look like . changeable?

yeah, i just doubt these other mufflers are going to add 6 and have the quality of abbott (maybe they are better, I dont know)... just trying to see why people are not getting this one instead, anyone?

Scanwest auto is handling them in USA and the price is ~$800 so it is quite expensive for a muffler assembly. I would hope to pick up a quality cat back system for less than that when they are available in 3" for the 9-3 ss Aero. :roll:

You can the Ferrita cat-back for $780.00 shipped from Sweden.

What about the cost issue? I was going to buy it, but I ran out of duckets. :cry: It is a cat-back exhaust.

I emailed them about it. They emailed me back the price plus shipping. Here is a picture of it.

I bet a catback on our cars with no resonator sounds mean as hell. I just went with the magnaflow setup, should be what im lookin for, mainly sound. if it adds any oopmph thats a bonus. Mainly went with the magnaflow for the $$$ reasons, ive managed to tap myself out as well here for a while.

Still have to get her put on, id say somtime in the next month, sitting in my garage now. I used to run a Techtonics 2.5" catback stainless on my GTI VR6 with single resonator, phew talk about a sweet sound!
