The TSP catback sounds good. Some has had issues with the tips sagging a bit.

From clamps or welds? or weak hangers?

If thats the worst thing you have to worry about when installing a catback consider yourself lucky. There's a pipe....a tip that slides over it and a clamp...

Its odd, every car that comes of the line used the same part with the same bends, yet with catbacks they say "every car is different" lol....HUH?!?!

It's called "production tolerance stackup". Every car IS different.

Thats why you got a puny size exhaust system from the factory. Leaves plenty of room for 'every car is different'

I have the 3" version with the cut-out. I heard the 3.5" needed the pan hard bar relocation mount to clear the axle area. I figured the 3" was enough for daily driving. When I'm at the track, I remove the cut-out. The cut-out is at the very front of the cat-back system, so it bypasses everything after the Y-pipe.

My only complaint is that the cat-back "tips" do not come with hangers. I had to take my car to a shop to get the hangers welded on. I also had the shop tack weld the pipes while they were at it. The clamps were letting the pipes rotate a little. That will cause a "sagging" look with the tips, because the muffler doesn't hang level. It's kinda in there at an awkward angle. Over time, the muffler tries to rotate to a level position. The causes one tip to go up, and one to go down. The factory muffler didn't "sag", but it was welded in (by SLP?) .

I had the issue of the driver's side tip sagging bad even after adjusting it 4 times. I was able to get it where I wanted after using the frame rail hanger that was on my old magnaflow and making a clamp. I had my buddy tack it in place too.

The TSP system is very nice, but IMO should have more than just 2 hangers.
