Wow! That sucks that you missed the video but also looks like it might have been a lucky escape with the car! Bet you had your heart in your mouth for that ride!!

Thanks for the pointer on where/how to mount though - I'm gonna try that next time I'm out

Why did you leave the cats on in the first place? Especially at the power level you're at? Guess they decided they wanted off.

I thought I could get a way with it. ARH is good stuff you know.

I actually ordered both cats and off-road but we needed the extra pipe to hook up to the Corsa after cutting off the 2.5" neckdown. Needed all the 3" pipe that was sent so ended up with cats.

That's a lot of boost for cats son. Mine died at 550 rwhp. Really men run no cats so welcome to the club.

True..

I replaced mine and went back with Goodyears. Michelin Pilot Supersport is the best but GY is half the price now. I was out the door under 1k for a full set.

Only one spot left. 1st one to send $200 to PayPal@H-TownCamaroClub.com gets it for Nov 1st.

I can't make this one. Have some trips planned, but there will be plenty of ZL1's and a Z/28 out there along with GT500's and some other cool cars. You will get to run as much as you want. The track is all ours.
