The welds were perfect, fitment was spot on, and the shine was great...it reminded me of an exhaust that you would put on a Skyline or a Supra...to me that was badass. I still like it and the way it looks...I just also think its time for change.
    if you ask me i like the stock look of the exhaust not a maxwell coffee can looking exhaust sticking out of the car, but that is my opinion, i personally am looking to get a borla xr1 single tip exhausted matted with a catt invidia dp

    Well, many may say that even my new muffler is "ricey"... cause it's still a 4.5 inch tip.... but it's a more traditional shape, and it's nicely tucked up under my rear bumper. I wanted something that onlookers to do a double-take and say "Hey.... what's he got going on under there?"... but the low-hanging, cylindrical, angled-out fartcan had to go...... I just don't like what it symbolized.

    You're correct.... NOTHING "performs and flows" better than a fartcan. That's what Cobb told me, so tht's one of the main reasons I purchased one.

    It's unfortunate that the rice crowd has done nothing but reinforced their popularity though..... often by just bolting on a $5 eBay special to their stock 1-inch exhaust. Thats why correctly-built civics sound and perform good, but 95% of them on the roads sound like big mosquitos.

    I just didn't want to be even remotely associated with them.

    The WRX and STI are serious cars, capable of producing serious numbers..... yet the majority of the Subaru "outsiders" assume we're just riceburners

    Thats why I absolutely HATE it when the young guys do stupid crap to their cars. All it does is just support the negative stigma.

    I had a Mustang GT guy start talking smack to me about being a "4-banger riceburner" once..... Until I handed his own ass to him at the local drag strip.

    haha same thing happened to me, but i raced a 1998 roush edition mustang...guy thought he would destroy me, "waste of gas for me" i belive he said to a friend...and i spanked him by 1 car length...this was when i had my STOCK TMIC, no turbo inlet ...i think what really won me the race was the Short shifter, no lie...i could see a difference from when he would shift (with those big ole bent stang shifters) and when i would shift ....much quicker...

    My 12-sec run in my sig? That was a late model Camaro SS. Granted, he blew it at the light, but he still ran a low 14, which is an "ok" time for that car.

    I didn't get a video when I ran the Mustang GT guy... he ran in the low 16s--LOL

    The best "driving upgrade I've ever made?? The Automater DPSS stage 2 shift light/digital tachometer.... worth it's weight in gold. Here's the writup I did a couple years ago on it:

    It has the feature to "warn" you of an upcoming shift, I don't like it though, it just confuses me when I'm trying to concentrate on driving.

    Because 1st spins up so fast, I have the shift point set at 6200.... if it's any higher, I hit the rev limiter before I get into 2nd.

    2nd-5th, the shift point is set at 6400.
