    Well, there goes that...

    I'm backing up out of my friend's driveway, which is broken up and jagged slabs from tree roots. My back tire leverages one up so the front of the slab rises and caught my exhaust clamp. My exhaust separated and it bent my driver side longtube header sideways. FML.

    So, at this point, i have a muffler shop getting it patched up so it's drivable til I can find a replacement. I must say tho, that the positive spin to this is that I now have a taste for an electric cutout

    That is rough - sorry to hear that man. Hope the patch holds up long enough for you to find something you love and you don't have to settle for something.

    Ouch. Strange way to have you car damaged. Sounds good opened up, doesn't it?

    I wont take it, it was my fault. I backed over it. I've got the local muffler shop to piece it back together temporarily but I still havent located a replacement header. I hate the idea of shelling out dough for another set. I have to get it fixed soon tho.

    You'll need it...for the driver's side. If you can't get the car up high enough then its pretty tough to get in. Once its in though, it fits like a glove

    8 hrs later and my headers are in. Holy shit. The damaged header was so bent up inside there that I had to end up cutting it out in pieces! Kooks are awesome tho. Wish I would've went with them in the first place.
