felixthecat Noise, rattle & racket is why I added a stealth muffler to my Borla system w/ a Fwerk's header. It sounds awesome for a wkend & that's it. Pic's of my setup in my profile. I haven't added pix of my rear TCE bbk yet.

AllCarFan video hopefully this weekend. By the time I get out of work, all I want to do is sit on my butt. I have an annoying rattle/vibration at 2000-2200 rpm. must be one of the heat shields vibrating....even though nothing is touching it...ugh.

The exhaust is LOUD. If I stay under 4000 rpms, its ok....above that and it is ridiculously loud.

I will try to get a video up tomorrow.
