Fae, curious, how much did that exhaust run?
Could install the 01+ bracing on the 99

He priced matched you. I paid about $100 more for that muffler. There is also a tiny 6" long resonator on there too.

Yes 4" right after flex. Exhaust built by Benchmade Proper http://www.benchmadeproper.com/ Yes those are urethane hangers. If it rattles I have a plan. See below.

Wow that's actually a great idea. My original idea was to just cut a gap in the braces where it was contacting.

Not my garage. My downpipe is 3.5" and there is lots of clearance. Why isn't there clearance with your 3"?

Everything looks **** bro. I have my fingers crossed for some big numbers. Only problem is, that teal color negates at LEAST 50whp.

At some point you'll need to realize that the up turn going through the hood is your best option. In for exhaust plug.
