* I6 Content * Y-Res Delete - Replaced w/Glasspack

Decided to get the Y-res deleted. I've been hearing too many stories of droning and annoyance from straight-piped, so I replace the Y-res with a glass pack. The rumbling sounds deeper with glasspack than just having a Magnaflow 14815 muffler. Glasspack is a generic brand. CLICK LAST PIC for video below.

How much does one of those cost? and i have a 14816 on right now with nothing else. and at cold start is sounds nice. and after 10 mins of driving it sounds really nice. But my one problem with it now is that if i drive then i park the car for like 30 mins and come back... no sound at all, almost like stock muffler untill i drive it for another 5-7 mins and it warms up again. so did you notice that it sounds good at all times? and before this did you notice what i am describing to your right now or is it just me? BTW those 18in style 42s have to be the sexiest rims for e39. i wish i had em instead of the style 65s.
