Well I had my cats cut out and ran straight pipes to my Magnalflow exhaust. I have been a little nervous about this for numerous reasons like too much noise, rotten egg smell, engine throwing codes.:hide:

Well all that has resulted is a much more powerful sound I love and it feels quicker and more responsive. I am getting a performance tune from my Caddi dealer tomorrow and I will try to post a vid/sound clip. :burn:

They are deleting my o2 sensors, cags (I will have a cags eliminator for sale after this) and the performance tune of course. Anything else I should tell them to do? I am pretty lucky they will let me mod my car without screwing the extended warranty I just purchased.

Umm ... your dealer is gonna retune it? Don't think dealers here in the States can monkey around with that ... legally anyway.

:yup:Yup my dealer is tuning it......he was trying to sell me a Maggie! I got it pretty good here I guess, I am in Canada to not the States. I just dropped it off and he said I will be very happy when I get it back so we will see.

You mean you don't have an appointment to have them done already? hehe. What's your next mod gonna be?

The next mod will be GC whenever i get around to it. With the way gas prices and how our economy is going i am gonna save lots of money till I can really see what the cost of living is gonna be a year from now.
If the government is giving you a big sum of money it might be time to worry:suspense:

So when Canada sends you a check for 600 bucks start saving cuz its probably not a good thing :bigroll:

We do think way too much alike! I have been seriously thinking about GC to, it's fun in the twisties now but just imagine it hugging the pavement some more. :lildevil:

Yeah and I hear ya on the cost of living stuff, it can't be good in the near future with the rapidly rising oil/fuel costs along with the latest speculation I have been reading about....food shortage!! Inflation is gonna get bad and do you think we will all be compensated for it with huge pay increases? Not real likely. :ill:

Dealer just called me to and said my rear diff bushing is shot so bad they don't wanna give my car back until it's fixed (tomorrow they say) so I am V'less for the day, it's gonna be a rough one now.

Exactly and I plan for the worst either way.

Why be so paranoid?? Because if you fail to plan. You plan to Fail:)

but yeah sucks about not getting your car back but its awesome that its gonna feel soo much better when u do get it back :yup:

I got it pretty good here I guess, I am in Canada to not the States. ...Just hope you don't need an operation. :eek: I had a customer near Windsor who limped around for years waiting to have a simple arthroscopic surgery. I got a bunch of family there, but sure glad my grandfather emigrated a hundred years ago.

Does your dealer have a dyno? And, are you sure the Royal Ministry of the Environment allows this?

Ain't that the truth, as good as our healthcare sytem seems a person cannot get a serious illness/disease......if they do then they have to head down south where the doctors are and they can get proper/prompt treatment. I've seen it firsthand with my family and lost a friend recently because it is slow here.

On a lighter note back to V talk!! There is only one dyno in my city and I couldn't get in for tune/dyno for at least a month and I am impatient! :bonkers: I also figured it would be wise to let my dealer help with my car cuz then they will be less likely to deny me warranty!! hehe :devil: And no emissions testing here so lucky me and my v :highfive:

I plan to get it on the dyno later when they can get me in though and see what she can do.

Dont worry about no cats...it does smell a bit when you rev it a lot. It adds a nice raspy sound though.

I thought about it too but with cut mufflers it can't sound good 100% straight piped.
