Hahaha dude it doesnt offend me in the least. I just realized that I didnt tell yall the end of the story. So here goes, its a good one...
So I get my old factory catback out. Go to install the midpipe. It doesnt fit. The flange doesnt line up. Then I realize that the other flange is even more off from the axleback. Staurday night. Open downpipe. Cant install the hew Frankenpipe. So I throw a hail mary and call my guy at Meineke. Hes actually there! So I haul ass throwing the exhaust and tools in my car, lower the jack and take a gamble by driving my open downpipe stage 2 wrx past 2 police stations, through a college campus and through Colonial Williamsburg. Somehow I didnt pass a single cop.
So 2 hours and $40 later the same guy that welded that flangr chopped, welded, chopped, welded and chopped and welded again. He did the absolute best He could given these bullshit cheap poorly fitting exhaust pieces. Now my Perrin downpipe has been chopped and reclocked at the flange and my midpipe ahd axleback? Well I wont need to worry about an exhaust leak because He cut the flanges off and welded them together. It makes my nervous how rigid it is, but it sounds pretty awesome. Pics coming right now.
By the way...open downpipe? I dont recommend it. Pedestrians were upset. Children cried. My car shook violently. My butthole puckered.
This is great you guys are great.
