Take your spare TB and try to plug in the connector on your daily.

That requires effort and I can't read it in MS to know if it's working since I'm on MSpnp1AIDSFAIL.

I don't remember but guessing no because I have a 99 TPS on my 99 throttle body.

Interesting. I have RB 4-1 -> RS catted mid-pipe -> RS3 muffler and like it a lot, especially from 4-7k rpm and at decel. Is your hatred for the sound due to the lack of a cat?

Probably. It sounded cool at first, now after ~3-hours of track time it sounds like all the packing is blown out. I suppose that when the time comes I'll replace the muffler, and that will probably be this year. It sounded cool with very little rhasp before I tracked it. After 3-hours of seat time it now sounds like an SM.

The reason I will never race SM is because I cannot stand their exhausts. They are always the worst sounding things out on the track on the weekends.

+1, you can ALWAYS tell if there is a SM on track...

Well as long as all your competitors are going slow also it is ok.

I have thought about spec e30. Those seem a bit more fun and less serious. They also do not sound like ****. One day maybe in the future if I get to the point of doing W2W racing I might do it.

I wonder if he changed vendors. The RS2 I had years ago lasted 50-70 track hours before it lost its packing but it fit well. The last two RB's have gone probably 200+hours before starting to lose packing and we have never outright broken a single RB exhaust component.

The 95R runs an RB resonated midpipe and muffler.

I have the RB resonated mid pipe. It sounds fine now. I had to beat the snot out of it to get it to clear the PPF. It made a wicked resonating sound at certain rpms when it was vibrating against the PPF.

My RS hits something on right turns. It's going to get a hard-mount to the subframe.

What header? I'm guessing not an RB or OEM. If the header flange is off, the midpipe and muffler will be even further off.

I have the Jackson Racing header so my SC will fit. This is the silver NB that was parked next to you guys with Trey at Hallett. That was a good time, btw. Enjoyed talking cycling with you.
