Well I bought a 94 gt a few months back with the hopes of modding it. Last week I bought an o/r x-pipe as i thought it would be a good place to start, and It sounded simple enough to install myself as I am kinda new to the scene. Well the pipe came in so I threw my car up on the lift at my school. I thought my car was stock, but soon noticed that whoever owned it before me cut out the mufflers and just welded in some regular piping in their place. The car didnt sound bad at all and wasnt even that loud, so i never suspected anything. Well I started unbolting the stock H-pipe and ended up snapping the bolt where the stock pipe connects to the exhaust manifold, even though my shop teacher warned me of this. I wasnt having very much success so I decided to take it to a garage and let the pros do it. The x-pipe cost me $150 (pypes), and the garage charged me $180 for labor. I could not believe how F***ing loud that car was when I started it up this afternoon, without the cats or mufflers. So, im out all that cash and my car sounds even worse than when I started. I just felt like posting this story, I kinda got off to a rough start. If anyones got a used cat-back they're looking to get rid of, let me know.
