So, I have the magnaflow axle back on my car. I'm satisfied with the quality, but it's just a bit too loud for me between 2000-3000 RPM. If it was a little quieter, I wouldn't hear it on the...

It is normal for the car to start and immediately die the first time after you disconnect the battery. My 2IS did this also. CELs could be caused by loose clamps (vacuum leak).
