Mach XLT - J-Pipe Upgrade

I've been happy with my Solo Mach XLT exhaust except for a bit of highway drone.

I was glad to read about the J-Pipe upgrade, so I took the day of yesterday and drove from Lansing to Mississauga. Plenty of time, 5hrs, to think pay attention on what the difference might be on the way back.
Well, I ended up not only with J-Pipes but the Hi-Flo Cats as well.
The exhaust turn out just right!

J-Pipes


Hi-Flo Cats

The highway Drone is gone! When I give it the gas, it wakes up and let's you know it's there. City driving is nice too without being obnoxious. Don't get me wrong - I love obnoxios but not every day.

They really did a nice job with getting everything lined up too. Overall I think they do a great job. Tuning an exhaust is not an easy thing to do.

Can't comment much on the Cats yet but I'm optimistic. Perhaps a bit better response. The track will tell more.

When I got back I did notice that there was hardly any exhaust soot on the exhaust tips. I have always had soot build up pretty quickly. Not sure what that means. If anybody has any ideas, let me know.

Thanks Team Solo
Steve, Jeff, Ray, and Jack

Mid Michigan Motorplex today! I was hoping to see some other 5th Gens, but it was just me and my 6 Gun. And my Mom.



Up against a Porsche - I won but you can see his wheels peek in on the right before I take the lead for the win.
My best time was 14.666. My worst was 19++. I guess I accidentally taped the shift paddle. I laid some 50 feet of rubber and made a mess of my right rear quarter panel.

I had a lot of fun and next time, I hope I'll see another 5th Gen.

Gas Cap Mod

I had a big problem with the gas cap lanyard falling off the hook on the gas cap door and rubbing on the paint. I used Velcro to fix the problem:

There were only 3 5th gens. All V6s.
I was really hoping to see a V8.

Snow Tires on and Calipers Painted

Winter is coming and so after my last day at the track for the year it was time to put snow tires on the Mistress. The Pirelli Scorpion Ice And Snow tires really performed well for me last year. While the tires were off and the weather was nice, I decided to paint the calipers to match the paint.


245/50R-19 Pirelli Scorpion Ice & Snow XL on the 19x8 MSW Type 16 BLK RED ST rims.
