Hey Cosmo, how do you like that catback? I really like the look of twin pipe (more stock looking, cops in CO are cracking down on "imports") I have been looking into it, will it bolt up to OEM mid pipe?

Yes it will. However, there is absolutely no mistaking it for a stock exhaust once you start the car.

good for low lag applications..ie road racing
not too good on top end

Thanks for the update on ## car.

Cosmo, thanks for the info on the exhaust. It is getting nasty out here in CO, and I have been pulled over 3 times since I have this custom exhaust on, tip isn't too big either just big enough. I am pretty good at spotting cops and just holding the clutch and coasting until they are by me, but they are looking to pop all "street racers". That means they hate imports, and love detroit so for me that means getting pulled over all the time, whether I am doing anything worng or not.

joey or anyone who knows,
What causes the ball of fire coming out the exhaust? Is it because there are no cats in the system and running the UTEC rich? Just wondering if my car is gonna do it with a stage 2 system + uppipe?

Tim
