Agreed.

I just don't have the confidence in these shops. I've made up my mind. It will be just as easy and only a tad more money to just order the noweeds rather than drive to someone I believe can do it. And I can do it while my car is on jack stands waiting on my new wheels.

I suppose. But that would still be just as expensive.

Or I could Just remove the S pipes and put a turn down on the end of the header pipe and call it a day. LOL

Lets throw another wrench in the pile...

I installed my QTPs behind the axle:

That way you can leave them open all the time... ...

except for those few needed "quit times"
