As some of you might remeber I ordered an SS race exhaust for my baby and today I got the call telling me it was finally here!
I immediately went to the shop and was eager to have it installed and hearing it.
They were so shiny and nice...light weight...looked really good.
As the guys inspected the undeer side of the car they said they had to cut my stock exhaust to fit the new one and that was a small surprise as I thought (have never seen the car from under) that it was more of a unscrew and screw on...
Anyway, they said it would be no problem welding it back if I wanted to in the future.
the finnished result looks very good allthough the new exhaust is sticking out less then the old one....I wonder if its becuase of the cut or if they are supposed to be slightly shorter....they now stick out about a pinky finger wide from the bumper more or less.
The sound wasnt what I expected to be honest.......
At idle it had a nice bass and I could feel a slight vibration in my seat.
As I left for a longer drive to really check out the sound during different rpms I thought to myself.....what the heck is this?!
I didnt find it that different from stock as I revved it and at that point I got a little dissapointed.....
As I kept on driving I got away from the heavy trafic and could now hear the true sound of it without the disturbing sound of 100s of other cars , busses and trucks and behold.....it sounded really nice!
The sound is more muscular then stock and is loud enough to turn a few heads (stock did too actually) but without beeing disturbing.
During even speed without accelerations you hardly notice its there and for long trips it might be a plus.
Well, enough said.....I wont be postig pictures since we have seen what a couple of exhausts look like but I will try this weekend to do a video/sound shoot and find the best distance/settings to as well as possible hear the sound as I hear it.
well......that was actually my first ever mod (32 years old
) and after this I have some other tricks up my sleeve which I will share with you later (got some really good tips from member Mussy who I meet with and had a lot of fun with)
