No worries. Out of curiosity, pushing the plans back for personal reasons? Or ThE bLiTz?

Wasn't even aware of any blitz. I'm not planning to go super loud anyway. No, I incurred some unexpected costs recently and financially an exhaust is low on the totem pole (tire shell on highway wrecked my DRL, fog, fender marker, fender liner, and cracked my bumper, plus separately my windshield got chipped).

Managed to get some nice yellow lens fogs for less than $80 after shipping and conversion, etc. New fender markers weren't bad, DRL's are surprisingly expensive though and there's not really any aftermarket replacements. Waiting to hear back from the body shop but I think the bumper with paint is going to be another $500...

Missed me by a couple of days sorry!
blackhawkjapan was out of stock for a hot minute.
I ordered from Nengun and it just arrived at my door - can't wait to try these out.

Update.

I got the hangers on and drove for a bit. Only the last two hangers were replaced.

The result? I don't know how but it sounds way better now. The rumble from my UEL header is so much more pronounced. So much rumble, I dare to say it feels louder but I bet if you measured the volume it should be relatively the same.

Gruppe-S UEL headers, Invidia catless resonated frontpipe, Invidia Q300.

Edit: I can confirm with confidence there is drone reduction especially when I'm off throttle decelerating and when I'm holding 3000rpm on the highway. I drive all the time with the backseats down and typically my music is turned up to 25-30 when I'm on the highway. With the hangers, I can listen to music at 15 volume and I don't have to yell over the road noise when I'm talking to my passenger.

Just placed my order with Nengun for 5 hangers. I've been searching for ways to remove cabin resonance ever since swapping my suitcase style Ark Design Road Spec Exhaust with an Invidia N2 (also running catless UEL headers).


I recently added Dynamat Xtreme to my trunk and that dropped the decibels by 5-6 dbs all around. Hopefully these hangers will help remove the remaining resonance.

Recently had a local shop install the Nengun hangers expecting to get all five on. They told me that there was only three hangers to begin with. Am I missing something here? Or am I just a Driving on the highway is improved, around town is slightly better. I will update after I get all 5 on.

They must be blind. There’s 5 of them, clear as day when you put the car up.

I could forgive them saying there are only four of them, because there are four on the muffler. The fifth one is on the mid pipe right in front of the diff. Saying there are three of them makes no freaking sense.

Thank you very much for confirming that I'm not going crazy.

I would not go back to that shop. Crazy.

Sorry, did you apply the Dynamat just to the floor or the walls of the trunk too?
