Adding a Stillen exhaust to my FX45

Thinking about adding a Stillen exhaust to my FX45. I had one on my old FX35 and loved it. But it did lose some of the low end torque. Does anyone here have the 45 w Stillen exhaust, & Do you love it???

Did your Stillen hold up on the FX35? There has been reports of surface rust. I know one that has the Stillen on a FX45 -- it does sound awesome, better so than Invidia true dual.

I opted for HKS.

Re: Adding a Stillen exhaust to my FX45

my Stillen exhaust held up fine, but thats cause I baby the **** outta my cars. I used a chrome polish solution that made it sparkle. Thinking about putting the Exhaust on, but the difference was on my FX35 I had the spacer, pullies, air intake, headers, and the exhaust. I was just short of the Super Charger.

Im just concerned since there's not a lot out there for a 45, does just adding an exhaust really add that much more power & Growl ?

Apparently the best bang for buck mod is changing the fan to an electric fan...

Unichip tuning, efan, headers, cams, intake, exhaust, pulley (if developed, add your name to the gb if you want).

Re: Adding a Stillen exhaust to my FX45

who would you recommend for an intake. I didn't see that stillen made one, I love their parts. But I'm open to other company ideas. Also, whats an efan, that ones new to me
