Nope was someone at work no note no ones come forward and the employee parking somehow has no cameras... it having been a tow hitch helps but that narrows it down to 80% of the people that work there. People are just scumbags honestly.

I got my MA inspection done today but the guy was thinking of failing me. At the beginning he looked at the back of the car and the asked if my exhaust was installed when I got inspected last year. I said no, but it was the quietest exhaust you can get for the car. Then near the end he said the exhaust smelled and I probably don't have cats. But I do have cats and I told him so. He said he was afraid of getting in trouble but I got the sticker. He actually seemed like a decent guy, just very nervous about the new rules.

There is a bit of an exhaust smell near the front. I think I used the cheap looking Kooks exhaust manifold gaskets the last time I put it back together, so I may have a leak there. I will replace them with GM gaskets in the spring, and check the other connections. My bad for trying to get a sticker with an exhaust leak.

I'm guessing the overlap of the cam may also make the exhaust smell more.

I'm also curious if the Kooks green cats would reduce the smell, I have the regular Kooks high flow cats.

Anyway I'm good for another year.

Well my winter mods can't be put on until spring when i get the car out of storage but looking forward to the change.

1) Purchased new set of wheels.

Went with MRR M017 20x10 and 20x11 in Gunmetal.



2) Orders a new Spoiler. Going to take off the NLP Spoiler and add an Anvil Spoiler.



3) Purchased a Anvil Wickerbill to attach to the back part of the new anvil Spoiler. Bought this from ZL1addons.



Just need to figure out what color to paint the spoiler. Orange with the black wicker bill. Or Both black....

My buddy paints all my stuff for my car. He will be painting my new one and will give me a hand with installing the spoiler. He could probably paint it for you since he will have it anyway at his shop.

The stage 4 cam is going be be nuts!!

I just used the stock MRR caps on mine. They are fine for me. You can get SS or Bowtie on black caps at Phastek for them but at a premium cost! $80.00.

Picked the car up today, made 480 on Dons mustang dyno. Sounds nice, drives really well. Canít say enough good things about Don at Slowhawk. Two huge thumbs up!

On a side note, looking to add mufflers back in where the stockers were, either bullets or the jegs single chamber mufflers. The drone is absolutely killer at 2k, other than that the car isnít too loud inside. Anybody have any experience with either of those mufflers and if they drone bad? I donít mind the overall volume of the car, just trying to eliminate drone.
