Yes, I posted the link above. They were only $16 for all 4, not $40 a pair like Ford tries to rape you for them.

They seemed very well made, thick, flexible, and mounted well. Can't beat them for the price. Even if you ended up not liking them, you only wasted $16, and you could probably re-sell them for the same amount, so you wouldn't be out any money.

Fogs and parking lights installed. Matching PIAA yellow:











And, just for giggles, a shot of the stubby antenna I put on yesterday, with Tom Dually, My F350, looking on.



Vinyl is being cut... installation next week sometime, if all stays on schedule.

Well it looks like the stock Cat back exhaust will work with a few tweaks even with the stock valance so far.

The first shop was not capable of fixing their mistakes once they had already started cutting the stock exhaust and unbolting it, but I still had to pay the jokers to get my car back. Took it to a proper exhaust shop today and within an hour they had it fixed up. The pipes had to be cut in two places to rotate it the right way around and new sleeves welded around them to seal it up, but it was much less expensive than going with a Magnaflow or FSWERKS stealth when it was all said and done.

On the half hour or so drive home from work in traffic I smelled a few funny smells, but apparently none of them were burning plastic from the rear valance. You'd never believe it but the double walled tip was barely even slightly warm to the touch in the area where the valance touches it.







Not sure if its just burning off some oil or whatever was used during the welding, or if it's just random.

It's meaner under acceleration, but not as annoying as a straight through exhaust past the first resonator behind the cat.

Car sounds like it means business now, while remaining near stock quiet at light steady throttle such as at speed. It's really nice so far, and I didn't know which exhaust I'd wanted before.

The FSWERKS stealth and steeda CAI seemed to have a touch too much drone to me, but so far this isn't too bad, it is so subjective though.



Looks nice, sounds decent, etc, its a nice piece if you can get it for the price I paid.

For the parts themselves I got it for a steal, $180 for a 1000 mile or so take off ST cat back from a fellow fanatic who put a magnaflow ST cat back on their car. Fully installed, totaling up the fuel consumed and tolls to get it, and the two shops working on it it was still under $400 fully installed.

Which is less than even the 2.25" magnaflow 15072 system which is usually around $550 or more just for the parts.
