If I recall these are pretty much identical for the B16 unless Joe has put out a new version in the past years. I got the 2.5" cat-back from 2J because the car was already there getting work done. It was a magnaflow muffler and I had Joe weld in a high flow cat. Even with the cat there was A LOT of rasp. Added an 18" resonator the following week and all was well. Here's a video -

same brand
but different stuff

look inside
joe's has no packing nothing to burn out
is perforated not louvered

i'm using an original version prototype

it uses tuned lengths
[my car spent 40 hours on the dyno with 4 different types of exhaust before we settled on what i have now]

exhaust is on it's second engine
new cutout was added

i recently restored most things
did not have to touch the exhaust

orig, non shiny, cut too short, pre-version 1, exhaust
still on the car [6 years later]

the catback as suggested could use a resonator and such an option is available if you ask

i have no experience with the BRM exhaust, but was there to see dyno results on the b16

imo it makes great power, like something you would put on a hot sport bike
but imo is noisy [needs cat and resonator, both available] for a DD

saved.2 in the 1/8 over this Chinese exhaust

still going strong and looking good [i used a turbo as the resonator]

thank you
it came out of the mechanical restore, like a new car underneath

feels like new too
the moog replacement parts feel better than oem

a stock part

just kidding

the exhaust starting from the rear
2jr prototype ver 1, 3" side exhaust
2jr 2nd ver., 3" midpipe with e-cutout and cat added
2jr 2.5" down pipe

The only thing that concerns me about the BRM is the flanged cat. I know another guy on here was having fitment issues with it, but when I talked to greg he said its for ease of installation. I don't know for sure how the stock cat looks because I didn't really look. Is it flanged bolted on? or welded on?

The downstream cat on the stock SER is welded, but the piping after it is flanged to bolt up to the downpipe.

Initially there was A LOT of drone. It went away with the addition of the resonator.
