SilverBullet, do you have a Cardomain page where you are keeping all these pics? How much was the header package?

An excellent vendor.

Page 6 for the header install pics.

It'* all together now.
Just have to cut off the CAT and bolt the exhaust back up into place for the drive to get it welded up.
But the weather is bad so I may wait until TY sends me my new intake pipe.

The original downpipe is double wall construction so it is only 2 1/2" on the outlet to the converter.



The inlet connection at the flex joint end is restricted down to 2"

And I always thought it was 3" into the CAT. Wrong

So what are you going to do, use stock downpipe or get a new one. Dosen't the TOG'* have a flex pipe instead. Just trying to learn off you guys so my Tog install goes good.

No of course I won't reuse the stock downpipe. The new headers take its place.
I was just showing you guys how restrictive that old downpipe really is.

I finally just fired up the Bonne with the open TOG headers.
It sounds awesome.
BAD *** as BlackSSEi said in his video you all probably watched.
Shook the concrete garage floor.
My wife poked her head thru the door with this wide eyed look of .....well I won't say.
I am trying to reassure her that it will sound much quieter once the exhaust is welded back up.
