    funny thing is that the driver side of the ypipe is lower than that clamp lol Ill probably mov it around when i decide on a muffler. Im still not sure if i want to do SLP LM2 or just get a different muffler. the flowmaster just still isnt doing it for me. It sounds alot better now with the cats on, but it still could sound meaner.

    Always chasing that "perfect" sound, eh? I guess with our cars, you can't really get a real nice tone unless you go for true duals. I think I have a good tradeoff with my setup now tho. I've heard it from behind while my friend was driving it, I now know it sounds damn mean whenever I get on it, pretty civilized otherwise.

    Sounds good. Have to wonder, tho, it wasn't so loud that the birds got quiet LOL.
