I believe so. The Dinan exhaust system on my car is the same thing.

dinan exhaust

i agree its weird, i took the car to my local indie, he says the driver side is vacuum operated and it has to go over 100 miles in order work, the reason only one side works its because, if both sides work at the same time it would be to loud

The Dinan was designed to use only 2 pipes. This evidently allows better flow. I think it looks absolutely terrible and is the main reason I passed on Dinan.

I would get rid of that. Borla FTW affordable, not too loud, and good build quality.

Agreed on Borla. I got Borla on mine and it sounds very nice not too loud compared to others.

About Dinan one, 2 other pipes are dummy and yes they look funny only smog coming out of 2 pipes instead of 4.
