Thanks mike. I will try to do that soon.. I like it too.. I do have a weird noise coming from the x pipe.. from about 2500 to 3000 RPMs.. its like a whinning noise.. I got it in a video that will upload soon so maybe u guys can tell me.. its weird Cruz only happens when I am cruising and step on it really quick..

The noise is the x-pipe slightly rubbing the heat shield. I had the exhaust shop bend the heat shield back a bit and it stopped all the buzzing sound.

That's what I thought.. I will tell them.. I kinda knew it... is it hard to do it myself? I have access to a lift.. will j have to remove the cat back?? Has anyone ever tried putting some like dynamat or sound deadening material around that area to stop some of the noise?

I'm pretty sure all they did on mine was where it was rubbing on the x-pipe what take some sort of hammer or mallet and hammer the heat shield back some. But they said to really fix it they would have put a screw through it. As far as mine just pushing the heat shield back solved it.

Nice vids! Sounds good! Quick question. Do you notice it being any hotter in the engine bay with the long tubes?

Yeah I think it does run hotter... I think it is time for an ADM scoop for my injen intake... keep the air cooler... so does anyone know how exactly to move the heat shield?? Can I just hammer the part that is rubbing against the vehicle to give it clearance??? I would think I have to remove the cat back right???

FYI, The ADM scoop is not made for the INJEN. I checked with APEX and his last comment was ..........hhhmmmm, you might be on to something. I am waiting to here from him again on what they came up with for us.

As for the shield, just beat it out of the way. It is very thin aluminum. I did that to mine to get it away from the rubbing areas.

I know that the scoop isnt made for the injen but I would think it would work no?? from the pics that I have seen, the filters on the injen should just sit where the scoop ends which I believe its a very great place/idea.. Let me know cuz I would like to get one...

Ok ill beat it up.. I have to remove the x pipe and pipes right??? no way around that??? maybe just releasing the clamps that hold the pipes to the cats might give me enough room to beat up the heat shield.. what you think?
