BaylorAirForce's offical up to date car thread

Since everyone is creating a thread as a reference for the exhaust thread that is sticked at the top, I figured I would too. I will continue to update this as I mod.

Current mod list: ARH Long Tube Headers and Cats, Airaid V2 CAI, MRT V1 Axle Back Exhaust, Entire Exhaust system 2.5" (mid pipes replaced with SS mid pipes), Trifecta Tune and IAT relocate.

Windows up slow roll, then gun it.


Windows down, hard launch.


Going through a parking garage, windows down.

Nice nice. Love the videos. I am watching them now. I am curious now how your car responds now over stock. How does the long tube headers feel? I am getting the same ones you have once I get back from Iraq in Nov. I am saving for the headers and tune now. I have the mrtv2 and the Injen. How do you like your car now with all the mods you have. Are the long lubes the shizzle or what?

Thx

Wizzer

I love the mods, stock I ran a 14.8x after the MRT V1, Airaid and tune I ran 14.3x Haven't run yet with the headers but can't wait. The headers made a world of difference, it's the first set of mods that I could actually feel the difference. I highly recommend the headers!

btw thanks for your service! :flag2:

try it stock first and then if you don't like the sound of it go resonated

Alright, that's what I was thinking, would be much easier that way. Hopefully it doesn't sound like a ricer!

Its gonna be pretty raspy in the beginning. Especially when you first start the car because the pipes and the cats aren't warmed up yet. Now I got mine done in what April I think? Somewhere around then, and now that the pipes have about 5000 more miles on them, the exhaust sounds a lot less raspy and has a very cool deep rumble to it.

D/T Headers thought the 2.5" pipes would make the v6 more import sounding, bigger being worse like what a fart can would do,I wanted to do the same as I just added the shorties to my magnaflow mufflers and resonated x and now not so sure. I talked to my muffler man I have known for 30 years and he thought they would give the car a deeper lower tone but on a v6 not so sure depending on what else was done to it so who knows?
FYI, the shorties made mine more quiet around town but a cleaner more defined sound as the magna's gave it a deep but " monotoned sound", get on it and it is louder and sounds great even with the x pipe. I thought maybe the x pipe would make it to mellow as I used it originally to control in cabin drone or boom but it sounds just right and not to quiet. Funny thing is the shorties got rid of the around town boom more then the x pipe! the exhaust sound now comes from out back, not from the trunk or inside as before! If you have the booming drone sound the Xpipe helps reduce it and make it smoother but I don't know about the long tube rasp problem.

Yeah I noticed that, when I first got the LT's it was pretty raspy. However that same day I had to go back up to college so I immediately put 200 miles on them. Now it probably has a total of ~500 miles and it definitely got less raspy.
What I plan on doing is getting the mid pipes on and waiting a couple weeks until I have a couple hundred miles on it, then I'll make the decision of going resonated or not.

As of 30 mintues ago the entire system is now 2.5, honestly the sound didn't really change much. I did however get rid of some of the rasp which is good! Now I need to start thinking about what I want to do with the stock H pipe..

Its probably a little less muffled, and more throaty. The rasp definitely goes away. I told the shop to keep the H-pipe......lol.

Yeah, I was under the impression that the rasp would probably get worse and I would need to go with a resonated x pipe.. However I'm thinking possibly just a normal X pipe. You went with ARH's X right? Or was that someone else?

Just ARH baby. Its the smaller pipes that cause the stupid ricey sound. If you go a little bigger than it goes away. But you don't want to go to big either, otherwise it won't help you performance wise.

Alright guys as of Thursday the entire system is 2.5" (got the mid pipes from an SS owner). I still have the H pipe on it, and as of right now I do not plan to go to an X pipe. I love the sound currently I just don't want to possibly hurt that with an X pipe. The rasp that I had before is now pretty much gone! Anyways the original post has been updated with current videos of my system.

Your vids and audio are great, what kind of camera did you use to film the videos? I'm now 2.5" with a stock V-8 catback, DT shorties, Injen CAI, MRT V2 so I want to shoot some good vids...
