Thanks! I heard RED's and it is good, however a drive-by would be nice.

I have been thinking about doing the "lunch box" delete. How much louder does it sound from the drivers seat. The car is too quiet now but I don't want it to be too loud.

With just hacking it off the drone was terrible, but as long as you put some kind of pipe exiting the back of the car, its actually a pretty good sound. when you romp it you can tell, but with the cruise set on flat ground barely noticeable, u can tell its a tad louder, but still not much

Sounds cool!

I'm waiting on a nicer day here to get the foci back out of the garage. Been a busy week so far. Maybe in the next couple days I'll do a recording.

And to note: the droning is not applicable. It actually resonates perfectly at cruising speeds. My brother and I took a 5 hour road trip and he never mentioned a word about the exhaust. You can still hear road noise even.

just an update. i got off the phone this morning with FSWerks and they are tentatively planning on having the stealth kit done in a month. they claimed to pick up 6-7hp with the kit. Also they plan to release the intake kit (SRI type with heat shield) around the same time and claimed to also pick up another 6-7hp. If you call them they can add your name to a list and they will call you as soon as the system is ready. They are just testing mufflers now. As they are local for me i know i will be driving over and picking mine up as soon as i get that call.
