horrible looking and sounding exhaust, but, hey... you may like that

as long as there are no leaks and no CEL, they'll e-test it.

I have to agree with what has been said. Every single car I have seen and heard that has the Tanabe RM sounds horrible. Way too loud and farty sounding. I'm also not a fan of the canister style mufflers either. You will also likely attract alot of unwanted attention with the RM or any of the other canister style muffler.

Just my 2 cents.
