    The shop I go to here gets really busy at the end of the month. So I go early in the morning when they're most backed up, he usually looks at the dash and checks insurance then gives me a go.

    all this talk of scavanging exhaust... we are building hot-rods... not top fuel dragsters... anyone who needs to worry about scavanging exhaust (to the point where they buy one brand of x pipe vs. another) shouldnt be asking about what kind to buy.. . .. .. ..


    anyways, i suggested bassani, because eventhough i had a flowmaster catback and FRPP headers, the fitment was supurb!

    i dont understand gutting cats... i guess if you didnt pay for them, fine... but geeze. if you did they are pricey bastards!!



    and its not like they rob HP or anything ... esp. on a 15 year old N/A car :-/ the dirty MAF would rob more power than a pair of high-efficiency cats.

    I just like the sound of an o/r x thats why i gutted them, i knew that it wouldnt make a difference, and i only payed 80 bucks for the whole midpipe

    Nah its just too sketchy to run an O/R x pipe in California IMO, I've seen too many friends get state reffed.
