100%. I didn't feel like spending hours taping it on the drive back, and now I have some paint pitting on the front bumper. I'd recommmend it if you are going for a car show.

Gather round everyone, I have a story to tell.

Pre-SEMA I make a verbal agreement with a company about an exhaust. They tell me to give them a call after SEMA to get set up with this sponsorship.

After SEMA, I call and they say the product won't be ready until 2/1/11 and to give them another call on 1/31/11.

Come middle of January I set up an appointment to have my longtubes, exhaust and pulley installed, then help coordinate a dyno tuning event for the end of february.

1/31/11 comes around and I call ready to have a contract signed and faxed over. The contact at this company calls to order the exhaust for me. 3 hours later I get an email.

Subject: "No Product Yet"

Body: "Please check back with me in 3-4 weeks".

I'm not in a scramble to try and find a replacement exhaust to put on my car by the 17th of february when my appointment is. I've sent out proposals to a few companies, all who have gotten back to me promptly and it's very much appreciated, but I may not have anything new but wheels for the fest. I was really excited to finally put on the longtubes and get close if not break the 500 rwtq and 600 rwhp barriers. =(

Updates as they happen.

Found a new company who's ready and willing to sponsor my exhaust. Product isn't ready for the market yet. Most likely won't be ready in time to install for the dyno tuning.

Well two days and some discussion later. Flowmaster will be shipping me a new exhaust system as early as friday. Thanks Rodney!

Immediately I'm back into planning mode. Flowmaster made my day.
