WHOO HOO! So this afternoon, I roll into my bud's exhaust shop and we proceed to remove the intermediate resonator. A few slices with the sawzall, A few measurements and a freshly bent pipe, and some arcing with the welder and VIOLA! If there is one thing I could ever recommend be done to your car, cut this ***** out! Sounds awesome, top end power does increase noticably. It's got an impressive low rumbly growl at idle, and a full throttle scream that made the kid in a mustang GT turn and look. It took all of 20 minutes and it was well worth it. I can't wait to go to work tomorrow, I'm gonna have fun on the ride!
