Default Had another MNBC mini-meet today (4th in 8 days)

First Travis, and Nate came up and met up with my brother and I last weekend (brother didn't hang out with us much except to have his A/C fixed).
Then Tuesday night I met up with Seth for an hour at BWW'*.
Thursday Andrew and I had grub at Jimmy John'* (first time I've ever eaten there and I was, to say the least, very impressed with the food), and later we got together at a night club with some co-workers of mine. Jason Zais showed up late in the evening, but helped us finish the night off. Crazy fun time with lots of beer, women and song.

Now this morning I met Travis and his Wife at Alex exhaust so we could have our mufflers installed. Needless to say everyone agreed that Travis' new muffler sounds awesome, but allowed the cabin comparment to be noise free. Plus his new exhaust tips look Badass!
Travis muffler was an IIMCO OEM replacement for a F-body as he wanted a nice note that wasn't available with the OEM replacement for the Bonneville.
I got basically the same muffler, but the performance unit (also an IIMCO). It'* VERY loud with my 3" exhaust, even compared to the original 97 SSE muffler with all the holes in it.
I am kind of considering replacing the 3" HF resonator for a cheap 3" straght through muffler to quiet things down a little. I don't mind the noise really, but I wonder what the neighbors will think of me arriving home between 2 and 5 AM every weekend night.
For now though I am using the exhaust tips that were on the muffler. I would've used the new resonated SS ovals, but after seeing Acid'* black chrome ovals, a SLP GTX with rectangular tips and Travis'* new one'* I'm considering pawning off the resonated SS ovals and getting a set of one of the three I just mentioned.
For those who want to hear soundclips hold off for Travis.... he'* at a retirment party now, but said he'd post the video'* with sound up here (I just had to start the thread).
After the exhaust work and car washes we headed back to Sauk Centre to find Nate scrubbing his car down at the do-it-yourself wash.
Travis took off from there, and Nate and I headed over to my house to install his PEM'*, but we found cracks which I hadn't noticed when I took a quick peek into the box last night. Sorry Nate their going back in to get welded and I'll meet you in the TC'*.

P.*. be on the lookout for some more whorage from Nate. We stopped at a small lake and snapped some quick shots. Really nice setting too.

Just get the PEM'* finished and finished right, that'* all I ask lol.

You're lucky I like hangin' out up there lol.

Anyways, ya, that'* my co pilot that I got in Sauk Centre last weekend with Marty.

I don't have any vids this time, and all the pics I got this weekend is of my whorage and the cracks in my PEM'*.

Still a good time over all, even though Marty and I were fighting off hang overs pretty much all day. My head is POUNDING after the drive home, and dealing with cockbag cities drivers since I got on 494
