Default It'* ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Muffler clip)

Ok, charger was put on (only took 30 minutes to get it back together and running ) and is alive! No more cruddy idle, or stupid noises. I decided not to upload the 1st startup video, as it is kinda embarassing, all my tools fell when I revved it, and you can see my ugly *** in it.

New muffler (Dynomax Super Turbo 2.5" in, dual 2.5" out) Also hasn't broken in yet, it will get louder. This is with no resonator (stock) and a magnaflow high flow cat.

Yeah it was weird at first. I was so excited about getting the SC on that I forgot I had the muffler on. I started it and went WTF? And then I remembered "Oh yeah, I installed a muffler, I should record some videos".

I'm not a huge fan of the no resonator thing but your setup sounds pretty good. Was that the gears in the M62 I heard whining or a failing torque converter?

(I know the torque converter whine from my car)

Sure do, I prefer the resonatorless tone.

Nah, it was the power steering pump, the reservoir was turned nearly upside down for a month, so the system had some air in it, I drove it around the block and it went away.
