I hope the "which exhaust should I buy" type of threads disappear or else i would suggest that you commit a suicide DOUL LOL

Thanks Adel! what an amazing thread. I am sure you have put alot of time and effort writing this great thread :15: Thanks a million!

But i am not sure if this thread is a good thing for you, cause you have spoiled the board already which will result in more demand of these "Fantabulous" threads LOL

keep the good stuff coming :)
