ChallengeUSA 76TA-S Catback Exhaust video

When I had my 06 VBP Type-S and I was trying to figure out what exhaust to get for it the one thing that I felt was lacking was a "proper" exhaust video. So I created the video that is linked in my signature; 95k views and still going.

Now that I have my S2000, I figured let me do another exhaust video. I didn't compare to stock exhaust this time but ended up doing sort of one with different camera angles using multiple cameras with the help of a friend.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NFvZc...e8AUAAAAAAAAAA

I absolutely love this exhaust.
Hope you enjoy the video

What's the drone like inside the car ? Sounds nice from outside the car.

There's drone, like most exhausts, but ...eh, drone is subjective, I may say it's tolerable but someone else in my car may say it's intolerable. To me, it's fine, but I also do not daily drive my car so

YMMV as they say

I've got 2 other videos that are interior only. You be the judge.

When I was 18 drone was acceptable to me. Now I would almost rather put my stock exhaust back on, than keep my invidia q300 dual on the car.

I'm going on 34 this August, and yes, too much noise from anything gets to me on certain days, but I do love me a sweet sounding exhaust note and since I don't daily my S, it's acceptable for an hour or two or even three here and there.

and the drone is somewhat controllable with your right foot

I just wish the car had a true exotic exhaust note sometimes. If the car had the sound of an Aston Martin DBS, I would have no problem with drone that blew my ear drums.

Sounds good. I like my Invidia Q300, not much drone at all with the TP, although it does get raspy at times.

Just installed the 76ta-r. It sounds real deep but sounds quite restrictive. I still have my oem cat on so I'm sure once that's off it would sound perfect tl my ears. There's almost no drone at 70 mph. Exhaust in cabin sounds louder between 2-3k rpm than 4k cruising.

Super easy to install. Oem exhaust comes in one piece which was kinda a pita. This exhaust system came in two which really made the install easy.

Just my input.
