Which downpipe with dinan or remus catback

So, I was only going to do the DME Stage 2 tune and catless downpipes, but on looking at the overall cost, I might as well go the whole nine yards and do it right from the turbo back. I have settled on the remus or dinan catback as they both seem to have a slightly lower key sound in comfort mode. I already have a drag car that runs open headers, so if I want a big lumpy american V8 growl, I can drive that car. Now the question is which downpipes will bolt onto either of those two midpipe the best? I was thinking about going ARM for the price point alone, but if there is something that will fit and perform better for less than $1000 I would like to consider other options.

Or can I get away with keeping the stock axle back system and just get better down and midpipes and save a little bit of money? Not sure how restrictive the stock muffler is.

Arm are a good reasonable option , but their fitment isn't the best . Armytrix down pipes are a good option. I would also suggest Remus or Dinan systems will leave you with minimal power benefits , more of a sound thing . So that's up to you as well.

Evolution Racewerks parts are handbuilt in the US, very high quality and spot on fitment. Its also reasonably priced

And since I have absolutely no self control, I went with Armytrix all the way from the turbo back. I really hope it isn't too crazy in comfort mode.

If you went catless, yes, it's insanely loud on beast mode.
