Glad to hear that you made it back safe. Must be the color of the car that attracts the cops. Or maybe its your right foot....

Thanks for the Hooters lunch and it was good seeing you again.

Tom

Where did you unbolt it at? At the manifolds, cats, etc?

Well the factory exhaust is all one piece from the cats back. We just unbolted it at the end of our turbo kit which mates up to both sides of the factory exhaust 2.5 inch pipes. There are a lot of kinks and flattened parts of the factory exhaust that are causing a tremendous amount of back pressure. A dual 3 inch will take care of all of that.

The cop probably pulled you over to get a better look at your Beautiful ride!

Has anyone thought about using electronic cutouts that are vacuum/boost operated to open up when going into boost? Sorry, but I don't know how to embed the video.

Boost activated exhaust cutout........................

The evolution of the performance world is always getting better. Its all about turbo sizing!!
I looked through the forum and didn't see this....did I miss it?

That is "The" best solution to open up under boost and then quiet in normal driving.

I'm not very good with a video camera, but here's a couple vids. The exhaust may sound a little funky but the owner is doing a new exhaust very soon.

We have finalized our last customer car that we used to fit our kit on. We will take all the information and go through it and will have a date ( a couple days) as to when we will start releasing kits. The guys deserve a few days off to recuperate from all the long hours.

Please PM me if you have any questions about the kit.

Your kit is going out on Wednesday, I called and left you a message. We have the kit perfect now and are really happy but we just have to catch everything up.



Thanks for your patience with everything.



Also, more to come tomorrow. Update on FrankTs car is that it made 601whp and 620wtq on 9.2 psi. We would have loved to turn it up so more but the car was really hot because we are at record high temps here (100F)

Looks good from the photos and from what Jeremy has told me. BTW, those numbers are through the exhaust! I'll know more tomorrow when I pick it up.
