Got it all together save the drivers side exhaust tip, tying up the excess O2 wires, and putting the hood back on. Did get a chance to fire it up though. Sounds like a grizzly bear with a handle bar mustache and a one eyed saber toothed cat got in a bar knuckle boxing match. that badass!! took a couple mins for the computer to relearn what it needed an after that she was purring. hopefully sunday ill get some drive time after i button it up and really see how it responds to the mods
    That's possible the best exhaust note description i've ever heard

    I've found that bolt-on, never is! My car is still at the dyno shop because the exhaust clearance issues are still causing false knock. PITA!

    Drove it today, the pipe seperated right after the resonator so ima have to prolly use a seal band clamp and tie it back together, As far ass everything else goes i have no complaints. Tone is good just cruizin around and wakes right up when you get on it. FROST'S tune is good, no SES and car responds like it should. Also shifts a lot better too.

    Looks good... and thanks for the pics.

    System appears to fit pretty nice. You really have to tighten the snot out of those style clamps.

    Looks real good. As Jeff said, fit seems to be really nice and it tucks up nicely.

    Looks good, man. Very nice fit. I can't tell from the pics where that clamp is, but is it a spot that could be welded. The dyno shop welded my exhaust front to back, because they just couldn't get a good enough seal to stop messing with the O2's.
    You also might want to look into ceramic sleeves for the wires. Apparently uncoated headers throw enough heat to damage the wires.
    The a/c delete sure does free up some space!

    Thanks guys, it was a lot of fun!! It does tuck up real nice. My only complaint with the SLP LM2 is that the intermiediate pipe in between the y pipe and the resonator needs tp be about an inch longer. Or they need to supply a seal style band clamp and have the pipe come in selectable inlet sizes to match the y pipe. Got the clamp tightened up today too so ill see if the wifey's camera will take a good video.

    Mr Kid:
    Ya it can def be welded and i will prolly go that route later on down the road. Thanks for the info on the shields ill have to look into it. Lol ya def cleaned up a lot of room. I wanna pull the dash apart and remove the duct work and the plastic duct that passes through the firewall as well but haven't had the time. Hope them welding her up for you solves your knock issue

    Funny you mention the pipe being too short. I noticed the same thing on mine. When I joined the pipes, there was a gap in the slit that I had to weld up.

    ya, ima prolly have the whole system re piped after the y-pipe by a muffler shop and then welded up save a split above the axle and at the y-pipe to allow for ease of removal but i havent decided yet. Maybe while im deployed.

    I had problems with my exhaust and large speed bumps, driveways , and everywhere else. Claps are good but I have found tack welding helps alot. Takes most of the stress off just the clamps and can be broken loose when you need it off. I would have welded the whole dam thing if I didn't need to remove it later when I mod it more. So far the tack welds hod up good. Occasionally after a few rough rides I have to tack the header and ypipe togher again.

    if i had a welder i would def run with that. Seems like it would work perfect. But if im gonna pay ill have em go all out, repipe it and weld it up good so i dont have to return. Still trying to sell the wifey on it seems how i got the body work all lined up already for when i deploy.
