Review on HIDs
Seems like both the brights and dims have like a warming up period after being off for awhile, making them really dim and hard to see till they warm back up. After they warm up they are brighter than shit. Its just the warming up I hate Any suggestions?

How hard were those HIDs to wire into the existing harness, or did you get a plug and play kit?

It's a mod I am actually in dire need of if I want to see a damn thing! Such is the way of 4th gen headlights. All show, no practical use whatsoever.

Nah lol, the lights I'm getting use different bulbs anyway! Good to know though, if it's easy I'm less weary in buying them

Should I buy these 3'' pipes or see if the exhaust shop could make something up for me?

...Then apparently Midas is a figment of my imagination? They could do an I/Y pipe from scratch last I checked.

Granted insane bends to the tune of making your own set of LTs are gonna be $$$.

That said, buy and make it a modular slip fit as much as possible using band clamps where applicable. That way you can change something you don't like without it being a major PITA and 9 days on a lift.

Think SLP Loudmouth exhausts.. I know I am when I put in my powerstick.

*And at 0224hrs realizes he can afford doing the powerstick and a cutout on the T/A. Oh balls..*

Didn't say know one did them, just most don't or can't. An if you can get it made for less then what the pre made are sold for then go for it. I know there's only one shop here that does mandrel bends and he even told me there was no way it could do it for that price.
I would have to drive to atl to go to midas and with there prices I don't think so.

I have a hard time believing Midas, especially a Midas in Toledo, would do mandrel bends.

You don't want Dynomax, I can't see it on that page, but last I checked they don't do anything but aluminized piping. That crap rusts out in a couple of years. That's why I redid mine in all stainless.

You not going to be able to buy that pipe pre made in SS, dynomax is the last company still making the pipe in sperate pieces other than OEM stuff. It would have to be custom made or find a SS cat back cheap.
