Installed new exhaust, car feels different now?

So today I got my American thunder axleback and installed it. While testing it out afterwards I noticed that it feels slower? When I get on it, it seems like its a slug now and stutters. I have an offload h pipe coming in tomorrow thats getting installed. Maybe a tuner would fix the problem?

The axleback should have NO I'll effect on your car. Did you make any other changes along with this mod?

The op is saying that his car performs worse after installing axlebacks, or at least that's how I understood it. He shouldn't need a tune and hpipe to fix his problems, don't get me wrong, great upgrades but he should fix the issue at hand first

Well I had borla and the car felt a little snappier. I guess I'll just see what the offroad h pipe does. Should I notice a difference?

Where are you located? Here in Indiana, he'll all surrounding states is experiencing what it's like to live in the devil's a$$. Could be you filled up with some crappy gas..? Seems like your car should be too new to have something that needs cleaning, like an IAC, etc. I would look underneath her and see if your O2 sensors are connected securely. Could be one of them was knocked enough to loosen the connection.

There comes that point where you get where to the power... when that day comes it feels "slow" or "regular" and not fast... And with loud exhaust you also get a syndrome where it roars at 2500 rpm whereas it use to only roar at 4k plus so now you're expecting 4k acceleration down at 2500. And if both of these phenomena happen at the same time then damn... Throw a blower on it.

I think that's what happened. Don't worry, I'm in the process of saving for a blower!
