    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    i had a next-to-stock ws.6 [315 hp/tq]...totalled that and now have a ws.6 with full exhaust, tune, and SFC's [340hp/tq]. You will notice a HUGE difference in fuel economy and torque.

    Yeah I'm gonna get some video and post them on here and our local car club site. I've got 3 cameras lined up but the weather here is a little on the crappy side right now. I opted not to get the SFCs put on yet. Figured that if I broke the rear end up pretty bad at the track I should have it straightend or make sure the body is straight before having them welded in place. It will prolly be next week by then but I'll get some posted.

    you will notice a huge difference. The first few times you have it out you'll have the "eternal grins". What mufflers did you go with on the duals and post some sound clips.

    I went and got mine out of the shop today. Well it was a totally different feel, ride and sound. Going from my old exhaust set up to the new 3" duals with x sounds so much cleaner, less backfire and alot less sound inside the car. With the rear end and gears and suspension it looks like I gained about 250-300 rpm @ 65 mph tho but the overall acceleration and grip of the car on the road more than makes up for it. When I finally got on it, I was like HOLY ----! Way more power and feels so much more stable than it was. The only thing that is bad about it is there is just a small amount of gear whine that you can hear at deceleration but its just barely noticeable. I was going to get some video but my batteries went dead, so I'll get some this weekend.

    aftermarket gears are gonna make a little more racket than stockers. Just so it isn't really loud whine and doesn't whine on accel you'll be fine.
