    Here is a short half ass video of mine when I had my muffler chopped off before the rear axle. At first I loved it! It was loud and sounded mean. As time went on, it got old and annoying so I put my muffler back on. The only time it sounded good(when the muffler was off) was when I was WOT, it SCREAMED and I loved it, but puttin around town it sounded like shit.


    Stock y with no cats:

    Sounded okay to me. But I think I would be more concerned with your dash lit up like a christmas tree.....

    While I don't share your enthusiasm, I guess it's on the cheap.

    I much rather prefer a nice system, and just install electric cutouts so I can flip a switch for noise when preferred.

    Not to mention, with all this emission testing nowadays and getting worse, most stations that do a sniffer will automatically flunk the car if there isn't a tailpipe in a convenient location to hook up to.

    that is very true. I guess you have to get in good with your local smog guy so he won't do that

    if you have LTs with no cats run a muff. if you get a cated y for the headers then leave the muff off. IMO

    SES light is on because I got rid of my cats and had pipes put in their place. Change Oil light goes off after my car is running for a minute or two. ABS INOP light is a mystery to me. It's been on for about 5 months, ever since I put a new fuel pump in. I have no clue why it's on. I have checked all the connections under the rear of my car and they are securely plugged back in where they were.

    Other than the Christmas tree-like dashboard, the car still runs great.

    You just need to reset your oil change light then and it won't come on at all.

    Sounds like you are going to need to read those codes and find out exactly what is going on with the abs, and a tune to shut off those rear 02's. Then you'll be in business.

    then you can say the same thing for all the people that buy bullet resonators like LM because they're no more than hollow pipes with brand names on them. I just did it the cheap way instead
