Running 2.5" downpipe no cat to 3" exhaust with 2 borla resonators to a N1 style muffler with a silencer on. My camera I used to get the sound clip sucked. I'm gonna get a new one soon to post on here. But have some pics of the muffler and the install.




Also painted my headlights like the ses headlights. Turned out pretty good. I sealed them and let the silicone cure for quite a while, like 6 hours, but still have some fogging and condensation building up. I'll take care of it.

Well thats it for now on updates.

Hey man, sorry to hear about your divorce, that totally blows and I wouldn't wish that on anyone.

So hows 200 whp feel? Thats been my goal from day 1. I've been a little gun shy being that my car has been awesome. 102k to date and no issues.

Still got my manifold and turbos though, so besides the tuner and such its all the odds and ends I need to get

I saw a couple post about tuning in Florida. Orlando Florida has Kings Performance. They do an excellent job around here. They are in Orlando near the Mills District.

Man, haven't been on in a while. Things ended up working out after a while on the homefront. As far as the car goes, ran great for a while then had some exhaust leak problems. The downpipe had a huge crack in it. Fixed that and running strong. Actually upgrading the downpipe to 3" turbo back. Turbo is still going strong. Still pulls hard. Still have it at about 9.5 psi. Waiting until I build the bottom end and clutch before uping the boost. Might as well do it all at once. Probably gonna be when I get my taxes.

I'll post some pics of the new downpipe after it's finished being welded.
