I had one on my eclipse and it was the best exhaust i had ever had! I loved the look, the sound and the performance! I think they discontinued it for the evo though. check www.thermalresearchanddevelopment.com
Well the upgrades I am going with are: Megan 02, Megan dp and Megan cat delete and either a thermal or greddy exhaust. Now these are my first performance upgrades...are these good choices? The shop I am dealing with is putting this together as a package for me.
Why not just stick with a Megan cat-back? It fits perfectly, is very cheap, is full 3", makes great power, looks great (when new only like any exhaust, though), and sounds ok. Doing a Greddy cat-back would just cost a few hundred more to gain nothing.
Anyway, you're just talking about a TBE and o2 housing - that's not really a package. A package for an 05 would be like my Warrtalon/Buschur package:
- Fuel pump
- Boost gauge + pod
Although the o2 touches the DP, it is not a part of the exhaust install - it is much more difficult to swap out, because you either have to remove the radiator or remove the turbo. That's why the o2 is not usually included in a stg1 package, but it's certainly ok to do it along with a stg1.
Thermal was very popular on DSMs, but I haven't seen anyone use one on an Evo. I suggest sticking with more widely-used, proven, cost-effective choices.
The one slowboy carries is only 2.25" and the one modacar has doesn't give any info. The one modacar has a pic of is the one I remember on theramls website. I love the tip on the exhaust it's a double wall and looks very mean on the car.
