The 80.00 is onlyo for welding the 'Y' pipe in place. Putting the motors in and running the wire and hooking it all up is my part. Still pretty good I think.

He already had his mind up when he asked the question on here...

Doug's is a good product... just not the right fit for Randy... like Savini wheels. they look great and they are priced well... but they just don't fit right... and I'd hate to see randy break another finger using a cutout instead this time...lmao
Hey, I just wantto see how tight the dorrs close. Best way is to have my son close them while I put my finger in it right?

I wish I could have. But that cam extended me at the time. I hadn't planned for it.

Yes. If a motor goes bad I wnat to be able to just take it off, cover it with a cap and send it back and when the new one comes in I just unbolt the cap, bolt the new motor in and plug it up right there.

Yes. Will do. I'm actually in corespondence with noweeds right now. hahahaha But we'll see what happens. Noweeds doesn't have a system that bolts up to Borla right now. He's going to see if he can do something.

I like that, and I could still take it off if a motor goes bad. I think I want it to dump by the headers though.

Yes



You



Do





But you haven't listened to me this far in the process, so why start now?

you should buy 8 cutouts and mount them to the headers directly and route them thru the hood with flapper valves....

Well, I'll just get that type and have the 'Y' diverter welded in in the same spot and do it like your friend who bought yours did. My headers and mid pipe scrape the ground already. I have to get them up a bit. They are shipped already.

BUT, I might just get the noweeds. Can't beat that system. Dumps straight back and fits perfectly as a bolt in. Noweeds looked at the Borla syatem and said I'd just have to trim the noweeds a little and it would fit perfectly.

do it like Emma's.

you can beat the system... did they physically look at it? or just at your pictures?
and would your warranty on their system still be valid if you just "trimmed" on their parts?

just sayin ya know..




No way. I OWN his ass on the strip.
we'll see... Oh, did I tell you that I have figured out your methanol injection system? I just need your car to test fit the injection harness and lines.

My friend didn't do it that way. I had them like that in my car. We just took the whole exhaust off my car and put it on his. I was sad to see the cutouts go, but the exhaust wouldn't have fit in his car without that section because they were welded in.

What have you got against QTP cutouts? The smartest car guy you know (SPIKE) recommends them!

Now that's some redneck engineuity.................. pun intended. LOL

But yes. The noweeds motors will still be covered if I trim the pipe. And they pulled up the part number and Borla exhaust and said the noweeds system is the same size offset as the borla S pipe from the cats to the xpipe.

So I believe that may be what I do. Can't beat a straight shot out the pipe.
