I have the magnaflow exhaust that a lot of guys on here have and I love it. It is has nice deep throaty tone to it. I'm interested how it would sound with an OBX header, as that it what I am planning on getting.

Whoa my build thread came alive here. lol Before it was a nice throaty rumble. I will make a video after this current gas tank to show you guys what it sounds like. Here is what it sounded like before the header anyways.
YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.

Fast forward to almost a minute.

You can find it quite a bit cheaper elsewhere, this is just for reference.

So anyways, the ad for ebay said self adhesive. idk what the point of them being sticky is since you cover the vinyl with soap which makes the stickiness go away. haha I didnt realize id have to use a heat gun and all that. But I did. I messed up the first time, and the corners arent perfect. But they will do for me. I am going to make a how-to so you guys can do it too if you want. I really liked the way it turned out.
