Ya dropping the car with full weight will actually move the driveshaft away just a bit via the panhard bar. It might be okay driving so long as you don't unload the rear of the car over some railroad tracks or something

Either way, this exhaust flows great contrary to what some people think who have not been introduced to 4" pipe exhaust. And a Mufflex is a proven performer, Probably the worst flowing part of this exhaust is the Spin Tech muffler on it. But the system sounds great. Hopefully I gain at least .5 inch.. maybe more with a loaded suspension

Everyone wants a true dual setup dumped that hangs down and looks awfull. The mufflex tucks up nicely and with the hidden tailpipe you can't even tell there is a system on the car. Ground clearance isn't an issue. And the sound from 4 inch piping and a 4 inch muffler is something all kids should be required to hear.

Oh by the way,,,,did you get that thing on the ground and go for a spin yet??

This is enough clearance for me. As long as I dont jump the car and get air born or do reverse wheelies, I think this will be fine. Just took it for a 10 minute drive and im gonna let it cool. The then repeat and hopefully I dont have a screamer.

That looks to be plenty of clearance now. You are ready to rock and roll.

Just got back from a 15 mile cruise. Gonna let it fully cool. Then maybe go wash The Bitch. Tomorrow at 2PM im getting a full dino tune from (Non sponsor). Ive kinda washed my hands with the self tuning for now. I just want it tuned and ready to rock for this summer. Too bad there arn't more self tuners close to me, I would love to learn first hand. Maybe the tuner tomorrow will let me peak at what hes doing. Life is good.

Just as long as the tuner doesn't lock your computer after tuning,,,and he uses the same HPtuner software that we are using,,,,,you can simply download the tune to your laptop after he is done.
That way,,,you can sit down with it,,,compare it to the tune you were using and see what he changed. From there you can tinker with his tune or yours.
I've often thought it would be worth a few hundred bucks to do that. Probably learn a few things to boot.

I figured it would be that way, it always looks like that off the ground even with stock exhuast but once you put it on the ground, no worries.

The reality is,,there really isn't a magic tune for any one car,,,just a correct tune for the given circumstances. All combustion engines respond in the same manor. If you know the basics of what an engine likes, and can apply it correctly,,,the engine will respond.
That is the simplist of terms but it gets the point accross. There are alot of tuning variables that change when the dynamics of the engine are changed (ie: camshaft, compression, intake, carb, headers, cylinder heads and much more)

But if I specifically tell him to not lock my computer, does he have the right to do so?
06-10-2009, 06:51 PM #34
I would just be up front about it before any work is done and see how he/she responds. My honest opinion is that most shops probably won't lock a computer.
If you still are skeptical. You can bring your laptop along and when he/she is finished you can plug in and check for yourself before you leave. If it's locked you should know right away.
