Just did an exhaust fuse pull for the NPP exhaust and it sounds amazing!!! Omg! I will post a video tomorrow. Couldn't find the box, put finally found it lol took about 10 min to do everything. Where did u guys leave your fuse at? Did u leave it attacked to the puller and put it in the front fuse box?

Congrats dude. Looks amazing. It would be very difficult for me to decide between a white or yellow 1LE if I could order one now.

basically the nPP exhaust one of the exhaust tips (outer ones on each side) have a flap that opens and closes depending on high RPM... removing the fuse will keep the flap open always and wont close so it sounds way better!

Looks great. The tint makes it look much nicer. But let me get your take on this. Did you like yellow better with the black shark fin or the color matched one? Personally I'm not a fan of the color matched on yellow.
