Thanks for the compliments! I am glad everyone is liking the exhaust setup.


Hey have you seen any other 1le's on the road? I don't know of any other in the state yet. You?

Weird. I was just thinking the exact same thing. Someone posted in the 1le pic/vid thread that they were testing their 1le on the same stretch of road I was on in my exhaust video. It was gm boulevard in Shreveport next to the shutdown GM plant. I think he is from Waskom, TX. So it doesn't count as being in LA...

I will certainly keep my eye out for them though. There will have to be at least one or two more in Lafayette in a couple of months. I'm surprised I haven't seen you. I drive to New Orleans for business a couple days out of the week. We should cruise soon... Speaking of, any car meets or cruise nights coming up?

I forgot to check that. I'm am stupid sometimes...

My hood wrap will be coming off when either the hood looks terrible or I have enough money for a paint job, unless I like all white. We will have to see how it stands up in all this nasty weather we have been having. It's been raining non stop for 2 days here in Lafayette. What part of New Oreans are u from?

Thanks! It wasn't too bad. Tips were 125 (http://tips.byethost4.com/dualpair.html). Diffuser was 476 (2SSRS makes the diffuser... check out www.gen5diy.com). JBA catted midpipes were 389 (got them from MarylandSpeed). Installed midpipes and diffuser myself. Muffler delete (two pipes, some bending, alignment, hangers, and welding tips on) was 100. I know a guy in Shreveport who has been doing exhaust work for 30 years. He helped me out a little bit. And all prices included shipping. So total = $1,090. Not too bad for what she sounds like now...

I'm guessing your car was NOT equipped with the NPP?

Nope. I was planning on doing aftermarket when I ordered so I decided not to spend money on something that would have been coming off within the first month anyway. Don't get me wrong, I love the npp exhaust. Just not loud enough...

Light Installs

Installed:

LED dome light (much brighter than the stock bulb. love the color. at first, it seems a little weird because it doesnt seem like natural light, but after a while, you get used to it.)

LED trunk light (not that big of a difference in light intensity. color is certainly different though)

LED license plate lights (nicer white color to look at instead of that halogen glow)

LED clear reverse lights (from AAC and damn are they bright. makes a ton of difference backing up at night. install was very easy and straightforward. able to take the bumper off by myself. if i can do it, anyone can do it)

Chrome turn signal bulbs (to get rid of that ugly yellow color)

LED Fog lights (I have the plasma lights and they are a little more blue than the stock hids and halos. The led versions match a little better but I read a lot about the individual leds slowly failing and falling off... so i think i will just deal with the extra blue tint... Install wasn't too bad. The bulbs fit into the housing quite well but the connector didn't snap on like it did on the OEM bulb. it doesnt seem like it will fall off though so its all good)

DRL harness (this was sort of a pain in the ass to do with the wheel still on the car. i dont have a jack so i had no choice. if you do this install, remove the front wheels. it will be much easier and give you a lot more room to pull back the wheel well liner and get both arms in there to snap those t connectors on with pliers.)

If y'all have any questions about details on install or any certain pic requests, let me know. I'll be glad to help.

Thanks!

3... Old 5.0, 2005-2009 gt, and a new 5.0. The latter was very close, but I pulled him very slightly. The other two couldn't keep up. On top of those, a civic si tried and failed miserably lol, and a murcielago completely left me in the dust, but that was expected...
