Just wondering if it’s a good option or why should I spend the extra money on a pierce or sxth

Do not know many with this part so it's essentially an unknown on quality and fit in the VT world.

Lol. I literally just installed this a few days ago. Boy, it was a pain to install due to the tight space. Anyways, the piping is great quality and it fits perfectly onto the turbo manifold. And it’s 3” in diameter!
P.S -Due to the v-band clamp, fully tightening the top nut is nearly impossible. There’s not enough clearance unless you plan on removing the turbo manifold.

My current exhaust setup, ISR 3” Street Exhaust along with the PLM 3” Catless downpipe. It’s the perfect combo of audible pleasure and beautiful appearance.

I just added the isr race exhaust two days ago so have been debating on which one

If you go catless, you’ll pretty much have a straight pipe exhaust. It’ll be loud and the drone might be a bit much with your ISR Race exhaust (has no free muffler and has a smaller mid resonator). But performance wise, you can’t go wrong. Get a tune though if committing to no cat.

Lol. Same here bud. How many miles on yours? I bought the Tork OBD flash tune kit a 2 months ago and literally flashed my ECU last night before I left for work. I’m going to update my bio to include my mods in a few.

Nice, I believe that it nes catted, ups and down but I’m in az so catless seems a smart option, more flow but tripping a code will suck, kinda torn still
I reside in Florida, so catless was a no brainer. Plus catless dps are cheaper than there catted counterparts.

I’m at 44k, bought it with 27k on the odometer. I’d rather trust the the vendors that actually work on our platform to tune our cars. They’ve been messing with VTs for a good while now. Can’t go wrong with Sxth, BTR, or Tork (and maybe SFR).

So ur saying take it to one of them or have something delivered? Never tuned a car before, figured I’d just take it somewhere and let them handle what to do

Pretty much. Browse the vendors’ (previously stated) websites and reviews their tuning options. You can send them your ECU to be reflashed (based on your mods), buy a new and tuned ECU, or buy their (I think only Tork and Sxth have this option at the moment) OBD flashing kit; best option in my opinion. SFR is having a sale on their tunes and it’s a really fair price tbh. But I trust Tork more and shelled out the extra $169 for the flash kit.

Sounds like more research

Well I researched quit a bit, and before my time I’ll need upgraded spark plugs, oil catch cans, and a few other things I should probably get as well, maybe even before the downpipe install
