It sounds like a true V8 now not raspy at all. Low end rumble x 2 I left the resonator and stock cat alone. I dont want it to be as loud as the Bonneville was, but, it sounds great. Inside the cabin you get this nice rumble.

The roar of the V8 at high revs and the Magnaflows are great fun. Plus its neat to see 4 chrome tips still smoking when I got out of the car.

DP has a group buy into a OBD2 reprogram, done by the same guy who does our caddy 96-98 OBD2 option. DP is the only company who actually offers this caddy option. We are offering a turbo kit option that would include all of this but it depends on interest. Oh we have a set of headers coming to and this is where your engine will truly get HP gain. OH OH and I have a lead on blanks for your cam so we will be able to really set you up without the worries of a regrind.

The tips I had with my Magnaflow are just like the "dual turn ups" in the first pic.
while we're on the subject of Aurora'* I gotta tell you about the light blue rora I saw in St. Cloud, MN last Saturday. He had a kick butt sounding exhaust, with the rims that looked like Aliens 17" Enkie'* only instead of 10 spokes they were 12 spokes and 18". He also had that neon blue window tint. I don't know when the last time was I drooled over a car like that other than over that black 1994 SSEi that'* has everything done to it -can't remember his name, but he posted like mad, had lots of pics and now is MIA.
Anyhow, I am definitely looking forward to watching the progress you make modding the 'rora' -got any nick-names picked out for your "Superstar" car?

Lata,
Stylez

Oooooooh...I bet those tips look sweet (the old ones were so drab and made the rearend look top heavy because there was nothing drawing the eye down)...and the sound is no doubt mean. And I'm glad you're not going too loud...conservative is better IMO (maybe I'm just biased because I live on a busy street with waaay too many loud cars roaring by ).

Well done...can't wait to see how it came out.

Padwan.....I have an idea for your wheels. 12" black steel rims with BIG whitewalls. Go retro. It'll look cool on that white car!

Those tips are cool.....making me re-think my stock 'stealthed' tips.

if you get rims, go for simple/classy. Not too many details, but maybe 9-spoke +? Look at the BMW 745i/GXP. And you gotta go shiny (to match the tips, of course!) But whatever you do, Im sure it will look awesome, after seeing yours I have a new respect for them.
