Thumbs down

Wow that setup looks awesome!! Nice looking work by your muffler shop.
It would be awesome if you could run your car on a sunk to see what your numbers end up being. I'm next going to add an intake and RMM and can't wait for the increase in power and mpg.

The lower brace thats near the front of the car, It knocked under load in first gear. I re-enforced it after I notched it. Ill try to post pics next time its on the hoist so you can see which brace it is.

I removed it completely.... That part adds no rigidity to the chassis.

Then I had them do a Full 2.5 inch Exhaust with a Magnoflow Muffler. Its still a Bit loud for my taste so the shop said they'd throw on a resonator behind the muffler to tone it down a bit more since I have a Custom Dual Exhaust setup from the Axle Back and would hate to cut that out.

Ill be posting a video with how it sounds soon. The Steeda Intake combined with this setup really wakes this car up.

Notch I made for the Flex pipe, so it wouldn't vibrate or bump under acceleration:

Im just going to go with a full solid mount so mine does not hit. I have the obx part and it also works great and no check engine light with using spark plug non-foulers.
