Results will not be had until about maybe a month from now. This coming Friday, I'll be buying the midpipe off of a member. Probably about a month later I'll be getting the muffler. Things have been happening faster than I've expected so hopefully that's the case here as well . Otherwise, in my desperate attempt to try and get an idea what this would sound like, I've found two clips.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QtDKbEJsWcA
This one has 1.8 max power header, catted midpipe, and helmholtz race mufflerhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jbdU...ubarKevinBubar
And in this clip the car is running gwr street header, helmholtz mid, and race muffler.
I'm curious how much the helmholtz chamber will change the sound from the 2nd as it's basically the setup I'm going for but with two chambers.
There's also this clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=58VGHslEQeQ&t=366s
in which no offense to the owner, I'm hoping is not the sound I get. He's running similar to clip #2, however his header is not catted.
Edit* According to comments for clip #3, sound is not being picked up properly on video. Apparently doesn't sound as raspy as what's being heard, at least from outside the car.
