From a friend of mine that newly installed Catback exhaust systems (i just got the Apexi world sports 2 installed) that there is a break-in process before attaining the desired sound?

(I hope this isn't a repost)

btw how do you like yours so far? and dp you know the dyno #s on it?
I literally got it installed just an hour ago... and i didn't really wanna push it coz my old exhaust system is sitting in the car (wrapped up...).

I like the subtle look a lot. Low key ya know?

As far as Dyno, no idea sir (i assume very little gains)

you need to drive around enough to coat the piping with the exhaust gases, and then it will be "broken-in"

I have the Apexi WS2 and it's pretty close to stock. On the highway there's a little drone but not enough to annoy you...and when you rev high your engine is going to be louder than your exhaust.
