    Man I hope so! I'll let you guys go next week!


    I'm SO glad I changed my stock p.o.s. Motor Mounts to the UUC's while I was down there though. MUCH easier to get out with the exhaust off!

    That's been my contention all along.

    It's the OEM cats that significantly subdue the sound. The hi-flow cats (couple to the headers) are what make for such glorious music!

    Re: Header Questions

    I had it with no cats and the X pipe already.

    Was fun while it lasted.

    The neat thing was setting off car alarms!

    With the cats on I know it will be quieter then without cats, but it sounds pretty good right now.

    MOD HELL addiction.

    Re: Header Questions

    I have both systems;

    B&B headers (2nd generation), cats and resonator.

    Then I have the track version: no cats, X pipe.

    I haven't set it up with cats and the X pipe yet.

    Maybe if I have a few beers.

    I do have a sound clip of it idling with no cats and the X pipe.

    Re: Header Questions

    OK, I am uploading it now and will post a link.

    It is a "walk around" at idle, so you can set the volume for a reference by the engine noise when the camera was at the front of the car.

    There is no WOT because the maggie makes it LOUDER.

    The best part was sitting there in traffic and the look on peoples faces when they realized what and where that BITCHIN sound was coming from.

    The worst part was getting a ticket for "excessive noise".

    There ain't nothing wrong with my car bro.......
