Is that $80 just for the part, or does that include install? How much should an install be?

I checked Summit...$57. not sure how much shipping is. I guess I can look at ebay too. Hopefully once I get it I can find a shop to install it. They always have to try and make more money off you. But I guess you can't blame them since their prices are higher so I'm sure most go somewhere else for the parts.

Considering the wet winter climate and old O2 sensor, it may very well solve the problem. You'll notice a slight change in exhaust sound for sure. For the better.

ok just got done test driving.







They did a pretty good job I think.







Does this look low for idle?





Stock Pulley. Seems to do allright





but shifting right around 5grand in perform shift mode at 44 or so...not sure on this.





This is as fast as the car will go, tops out at 119 for some reason, not sure why, might be a fuel issue, still sorta falling on its face at 4000RPM and higher




He was tailgating bad, this thing spins the tires from a 3-1 downshift.




Anyway it seems to be faster by a little bit, O2 sensor has not showed up, the manifolds are cracked or the gaskets are shot...strong smell of exhaust in engine bay.

Why did they do such a nice job welding in front of the cat and the back of the pipe and then clamp the middle?

something about that they break their becuase the different metal, I believe the cat is stainless and the exhaust pipe is regular steal. However that would not make much sense......oh well all I know is my other car it broke where that clamp is so the guy might have a point....
