Not positive if I'm going or not. If I do, I probably won't race since its on the stock clutch and stock axles. I don't really wanna break anything so far from home.

It does surprise me though how many people forget that the whole point in an x pipe isn't sound, but rather how exhaust pulses are balanced.

joels welding is awesome, just comparing the pics mine and yours its amazing.

he cut J's in for you? your system seems to be pretty much 1 piece to the axle back portion, mine is 3, the main section, and one pipe off each turbo.

and pick up your damn car so i can do these mids!

Didn't do J's yet.... He said to drive it, and see if I even need them, and if so, he can figure something out.

yours sounds WAYYY louder than mine, part of it could be the cam, some of it could be the J's, really their purpose is tone and drone, so maybe its just yours is more "hollow" or "deep" than mine... not sure how to describe it.

we'll get together sometime and compare i'm sure.

Turbos go a long way toward quieting it down, it's night and day vs say an open headers/dumped ls motor.

well thats good... Sound great!!! I was looking at doing no mufflers but I had them discconnected and could not stand the sound... way too loud for any street so I was just curious on yours... but that makes sense...
