Can you post a video to demonstrate the sound without the muffler?

Also, that doesn't effect the fuel/air because of the decreased backpressure?

Before:

I used Turtle Wax bug and tar remover for the adhesive and it came off SO MUCH better than any de-badge I've done in the past .
I got a nice painted spoiler on fleabay for $102 shipped. Had to make a larger drill openings (dime sized) on the inside of the trunk but I plan on geting the trunk lining the sel/Titaniums have. Looks stock.

The air to fuel ratio, I have no idea on, but it has been dyno proven to create no HP gains.

Picked up this beefy bad boy up the other day from a Mazda graveyard:



Really cleans up the shifts and feels solid. Only problem I had was that in order for the bolt to fit I had to bore out the hole in the bracket, but other than that no problems.

Picked it up for $65 and looking at the site, it's $140 new...sooooo win

Springs. Stance should always be first. Then you know what direction to go with wheels.

Looks like it would need a bodykit to look right.

Only option I see for a body kit is the 3d carbon and that is way too much to spend on a lip kit...Im gonna look more into body mods once I have the drop and wheels on. But you are right...
