Did you have Borla's S type exhaust? That's what I have and Jason (IROC) is going to install my DMH for me this summer.

I had a Borla Touring.

However, Jason has an after-market exhaust (he has Flowmaster I believe). I'm not 100% sure, but I think he mounted his DMH cutouts further back - just in front of the mufflers.

Nope, mine are up front. Jamie Mac's are just before the mufflers.

Cool. Is your exhaust and axle back or cat back?

I just wondered if you installed it on the bend in the stock exhaust. Some cutouts don't fit well on after-market cat back exhaust because they don't bed as much there.

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.
