That looks damned good under there, and it will be awesome to see another car with louder exhaust than Schadd at the track!

Shadd and I were just yacking on the phone. Wondering if we'd even hear the Zilla'* FWI whine over both of our exhaust systems.

Good mod Bill.
I'm totally impressed you did it
I have been lusting after an electric cutout for some time and if I had to run a Cat I probably would have gone that route.

Guaranteed you will not hear your intake or whine with that puppy open.

I lost my whine last year with the Magnaflow exhaust.
I have it back now with the Gen V.

Damn that'll be loud. I've fired my car up with the cat/pipe on it, and it was INSANE, I can't imagine a straight shot out of the exhaust....

So you'll have a bad leg, hand, back, and no ears.. Sounds like fun!

Yes, it will be loud. Doug and I drove my car an hour each way to the drag strip with everything dropped after the downpipe, and it was ridiculous. At least you'll be able to open or close it at will! Very cool mod!

Not really to fix the top end, but make it better. I already FIXED my top end. Valve float at the top of 2nd gear was my biggest killer on that. Stronger valvesprings fixed that, and the 1.8 rockers didn't hurt any either.
