ORP + SVT Exhaust

Well, I had a HFC and my SVT exhaust sounded perfect. My friend mobbed a parking block with my car and hit the cat and it broke the "Honeycomb" on the inside of the cat. I found that out because my friend pointed out that I had metal shavings coming out of my exhaust and I had a loud @ss rattle just before the first muffler. Well, I took the cat off and knocked everything out of it and put it back on the car so I can have a CAT temporary until I can save for a new HFC.

I personally think it sounds OKAY, by no means good IMO.

Let me know what you guys think.

Ouch ... did someone hit you?

And that sounds like mine ... honestly I actually like the deeper quiet tone of the HFC over the ORP ... I am looking to get the CFM new Race HFC.

@TukaniSVT I have a thread in the showroom of what happened.

I agree, I like the sound of the HFC ALOT better. This make shift ORP will just have to due for the time being.

OH, yes I've had a terrible past week.
  • Battery Dies
  • Replace next day
  • Tire blows out on free way
  • Replace next day
  • Hit a tree
  • Cat blows out

Every list of event above happened all in a row.
