OP, thank you for the awesome write up. This will make the process much easier!
I installed just the exhaust so far. & lets say there is a little bump u can sometimes here it. It gets pretty annoying and the exhaust rattles up & down hitting that metal piece, i also made sure the rubber pieces were on tight.
They charged me $30 to do it. Rattling is gone completely. Those wierd sounds when shifting also
thanks for the quick reply. i ordered the skunk2 alpha series downpipe and also a k&n typhoon sr intake both should be at my local shop on monday. i will install both of them monday after work and scheduling my free and first oil change from the dealer i got my car from. i will finally reached the 6k miles on my car. i will order the skunk2 RR exhaust once i get the funds hopefully by december. and shortly after that flashpro and a tune by vit. after that ill be happy with the performance meanwhile ill work in upgrading my suspension since i do plan on not only using this car as my daily driver but also being able to take it to the track with my other friends who currently go to the track with their "track cars" any comments, tips, or tricks are welcomed. this is my first car and by no means im an expert on anything so all the info its welcomed thanks :wigglesmiley:Yes. Many folks do that. Just freeing up the exhaust flow from the restrictive stock cat produces the lion's share of the benefit of upgrading your exhaust in this car.
