    Well the car HAD SLP on it when he bought it and like a dumby he parted it out and sold it. I severely wish he had not. I know he bought this piece of shit catback for less than 100 dollars. Now I am stuck with this god damn thing.

    looks great. THey are painted black because the pipes were in terrible shape when I got the catback, I couldnt polish them, nor did I want to. You didnt have to trade, it was your choice. You are kinda making it sound like you got cheated or something?

    No dude Im not bitching, I already told you it was my decision. Just because Im not happy with some of the parts doesnt mean I feel like I got cheated. Sorry if I made it sound that way, but like i told you man I have a lot of shit going on in my life right now and Im finding it kinda hard to be positive.

    No, after doing mine it is rather obvious that there is NO set way to do it, as every car differs. Honestly it was pretty straight forward, if I hadnt have looked at 20 write ups I would have known EXACTLY what would be necessary to do. I just wish I had 2 days and some new parts.

    are you running spacers or is it just the irs that pushes the wheels out

    both. IRS puts it 3/4 out and he has a 1inch spacer.

    sweet... the black tailpipes aren't too bad at all. I would probably replace them eventually just to have that nice polished 03 cobra catback look but it still looks great.

    I take it you guys did a rear end swap?
