Custom Exhaust

Finally got around to making my exaust for my 06 element I picked up last month. Not the V8 growl I'm used to but I like. 2.25 cat back single dual.

Thanks guys, it's not crazy loud but not stock. I am not the biggest four banger fan as I said I am typically a v8 guy but I like this little rig for saving gas.Took it on a 300+ mile trip and it has broken in nicely. Decent amount of drone in the beginning but now it's pretty good. This is what I do for a living so having a stock system on it wasn't cutting it! Between the CAI and now the exhaust it sounds nice. I'll get some video of it shortly.

So being an exhaust guy, let me ask you a couple questions after working on your own Element.

My Element has a turbocharger in its future, after running your 2.25" piping, how possible do you think it is to get a 3" pipe to fit through there? Ive been thinking Id just dump the exhaust in front of the rear axle under the pass rear door, but I recently installed step bars & they look to be in the way of that idea. Your setup has me thinking maybe a 3" in / dual 2.5" out muffler might be the easiest option.

I think 3" would be tight but ive done tighter. Just ned to make sure its pretty solid so it doesnt vibrate and rattle.
