JDL makes front pipes that are pretty customizable. AT and MT options, pipe diameter, flanges, resonators, cats, etc. It's on the pricey end but that's the route I'm taking.

I see you've changed the title of this thread. The Invidia R400 is a catback. The headers have nothing to do with fitment to the catback, as there is still an over-pipe (The one that bolts to the...

You now have a stickier tire too. Is it possible that you're just noticing a lot more rolling resistance? That would increase engine load, bringing up oil temps and making it rev slower.

Buy a used muffler-deleting axleback for $100 or less. You get what you pay for, but even that's better than creating exhaust leaks.

What do you mean "fits up well"? Are you trying to reach a particular volume level or exhaust note? Do you literally mean if it will bolt up together? Did you change the overpipe?

Was considering, I figured it fit here because its replacing half of an engine with non-stock parts. If any mod wants to move it, that's totally fair. :)

That was an appreciated difference I noticed too, a lot quieter and less harsh over potholes and cracks. Can't corner anywhere near as well as I used to either, which is totally understandable

It appears that the sticker was peeled off :(

I don't want to pull the valve covers off yet since it's not on a stand, I'll have to come back to that later. Hoping that the VIN is etched somewhere.

The rasp has decreased a lot since I installed it, must be the break-in period. I'll keep an eye out for clearance issues when I do my oil change in about 200 miles.
