Hey guys i recently bought myself a 18 q50 silver sport in iridium blue with some budgeting and working and now im modifying it. i just bought the MBRP cbe and im looking for a decent LDP. The case is im 18 and im not filthy rich so i gotta budget my parts so i would like to know what you guys would recommend, i personally do not care about making the car quiet and catted LDP's are out of my price range so what non catted LDP would be the best price to performance? do i go ahead with megans or do i save a bit and get something else?

A used set of LDP can often be found on this forum for @ $200-250 with some regularity.

Some people buy Megans and are fine with it. Others do AMS Red Alpha ones. Others do Fast Intentions. Myself, I'll probably go with AMS

I went with Z1 because the J bung for the O2 sensor made it a little easier to install on AWD. The extra couple inches of slack in the sensor wire made it easier to reconnect on the passenger side.

Thanks guys, i ended up going with AMS because the MBRP catback is 3inch so i went with the AMS 3inch downpipe. cost me a good bit but i guess its for the better.

No resonators in that system. Hopefully, you won't experience any subsequent drone but others have with that setup.

Here you go - I installed MBRP and AMS LDP back in early February. I got the whole lot installed in one go.

If I were to do it again, I'd install the CBE first to experience the sound for a week or so. Then later, add the LDP if I wanted a louder sound, or to remove the Lower Cats. In an ideal world, I think I'd just keep CBE and not bother with the LDP's, but I'm too cheap to spend the time and money to take the LDP's back off. I also wanted a full SS exhaust system and now I do.

No drone but it gets loud and raspy at 2.5k to 3k which you either like, or dislike. Above 3k it is nice. If you don't want the rasp, don't add LDP's, or get a diferent CBE.

If you have the 3in AMS LDP, you and I are about to have the same setup... Graphite Shadow Silver Sport too!

Yes, we will have the same set up. I'd value your thoughts on the AMS / MBRP set up once you're up and running! I have extra special hail dent finish to my roof and hood now... bet you don't have that!!!! lol

No, I do not have that. But I bet you don't have a dent and a scratch on your driver door because someone decided they didn't like your car! I'll be sure to upload a sound clip comparing the FI setup to the MBRP set up

Oh man, I feel your pain, there are some real mean people around. Looking forward to your updates on the install.
