just be careful on the those summer perelli's in the morning. the summer rubber doesnt react well to the colder and below 0 temps, especially on the highway

I bit my lip several times driving home from the exhaust shop this afternoon. I was soo nervous as the roads are in terrible condition.

The DT headers and MRT exhaust sound fantastic so far but I'll have to wait untill sunday most likely before the streets clean up a bit. Camaro is going back away for a few more days :( .

MY god, enough snow, we need heat now!

This was my invoice from *************;

Subtotal 429.99
Coupon discount (save10) -10.00
Subtotal 419.99
Shipping 22.29
Tax 0.00
Total 442.28

And then when UPS arrived at the door, they charged me an additional $68 to cover taxes and brokerage fees. So out of my pocket, I paid a grand total of $510.28 for the exhaust.

Installation wise I cannot give you an accurate estimate as I had the headers installed as well and DT headers are stupidly hard to install as you can only weld and they require cutting the stock pipes a bit.

Um, my grand shop total was $724 after taxes for both the exhaust and header ((install)). I had everything welded permanent so no clamps loosening or leakage. This costed more than just clamps. I bet clamps would cost like $450-500 total.

I'm guessing having just the MRT exhaust installed would cost you about $100-130 after taxes clamped or about $200-250 after taxes if you want them welded.

Um, we should pick a time one of these days and we could hook up. I think I might hitup Hughes on Monday afternoon after this craptastic weather heads west finally and give CrazyBee a nice wash.

EDIT: I got MRT 1.0 not 2.0 FYI. I'm imaging MRT 2 would be quite a bit more quieter. MRT 1.0 sounds wicked at idle but gets very loud after 2500rpm lol. I'm already getting used to it just from the first drive home.... I love it. Oh and the resonators are still in for now. It will cost me another $100-120 after taxes to get them removed and replaced with pipes if I wish to do so.

I'm gonna recommend Atlas Exhaust, those guys were extremely nice, they know exactly what the customer wants and they insure the job gets done. They even explained the under carriage of the Camaro to me after it got up on the hoist.. I was super impressed man.

Temperatures are still sketchy Bluch.
I took the girl out for a run around Morinville today (first of the year ) and tried to open it up a couple times but with the 0 celcius temps, the tires would do anything to spin out. Give it a week and you'll be good to go.

C'mon summer!!
