    Well I got the scoops installed. The passengers side was a pain! The I started on the intake that was a breeze. Took her for a spin and was thoroughly impressed! Came game and started on the cat back. Started out pretty easy and then progressed to anger and frustration. Lol It took me awhile to get the old one off and get the new one on. I did it without jacking the car up if that says anything. After hours of laying on my back and hitting my head I got to fire her up and was filled with joy as she started to rumble! Took it for a spin and was shocked at the difference the cat back made! It pushed me back into my seat when I got on the throttle!! I'm verry pleased with the results! :D That being said I'll never install a cat back again with out a lift! Lol I'll be sore for weeks to come! Lol Maybe I'll try to make an attempt at the mud flaps tomorrow.

    Yeah, :) !

    I never got around to the mud flaps so that just gives me something to do next weekend!

    Here is a pic of the intake installed. It sounded awesome before the exhaust was on...I can't even here it now. lol

    Congrats! Looks nice. I can't imagine trying the exhaust install without a lift. You are a very patient man! :clap:

    Feel your head knots bruder, still have some from the SE exhaust mods/remods from 08-09, same as you no lift and don't trust ramps/jack stands, skinny DOES have a couple of advantages! But the louder exhaust DOES effect your gas mileage as they sing SOO sweet above 3500 RPM......... Vroom! ;)

    Texasrt, I somehow jumped your post. That's why you see the edited by deranged. I think there are some glitches to be worked out here or my mighty powers as a moderator reach beyond my own know how. :think:

    Anyhow as long as you weren't throwing wrenches. Those things always ricochet towards flimsy painted surfaces or glass.




    sicker, I'm gonna die fat and happy and not skinny and miserable. Good ramps and stands are what let me see and play with my baby's (car) naughty bits. :D They've stayed in the garage so far.........:whistle:
