I sooooooooo need to do that. I'm just worried it may be above my skill level.

A LOT louder. Sounds Nasty. but I'm thinking it may be too loud.

Now, I've got an exhaust rattle I need to chase down...

But it was fun..

the kiddos came out to give me a hand.
That is cool. Look whose hands were the dirtiest. Now we know who REALLY did the muffler swap. Just 'cause she fits under the car better than you doesn't mean she had to do it all herself...

Also, he was eyeballing that exhaust more than Dad. How LOUD is it?

I think the titanium tunnel brace is worth at least another 10 rwhp.

Agreed. I saw two of them for sale. but, I thought only one of them actually sat lower giving a larger space to prevent the hanging exhaust from touching the brace.

I was told 12, but you might be right. I think they were exaggerating a wee bit.
