    Im keeping the cat since it's needed to have the car inspected every year.
    Also, does the exhaust system have to be cut in order to be removed? I really don’t want to have to hack the stock exhaust system up as I’ll likely need it to sell the later on down the line.

    Thanks

    Thanks!

    For the price, it's good. As for fit, it takes a little patience to get it in there and sitting properly. I didnt think it was going to fit without some cutting, but it does. They did send me the wrong size bolts for the cat flange, but I picked some replacements up from Home Depot. Also, the cat/catback flange is a little off on size, but it seals good with the included gasket. You dont really need a tune. It throws no codes. I dont have a tune yet, just a intake.

    As for sound, it's not as loud as I was hoping, but I have no idea what it sounds like outside the car from the back. I know it a low, deep sound from inside the car but not at all loud.

    I dont see a way of getting it off without cutting it. I cut it per instructions and I think you could use a exhaust connector where you cut it if you want to reinstall the factory exhaust.

    Even though I have a Gen2 2016, I'm pretty sure we have literally the same motor so it should sound the same? I have a resonator and muffler delete that goes into a Y pipe.
    Here's how mine sounds, let me know if this would be too loud or not
