I'm just gonna piece together a 3" system with mandrel bends from Summitt, and then weld it up when it gets warm enough.

I did not think there was anyway a 2.3 could sound like a honda! I have no mufflers on my TC and well...it sounds like a john deer on crack, or perhaps even an old school prop plane....but not even close to a honda! [Image: smile.gif]

Mine has a real farty sound right now...The night it blew out, we were sitting at a stoplight and my brother said "Haha listen to that Honda". I started to drive away and realized it was my car! It really does sound like a honda with a fart can at idle. [Image: frown.gif]

Me too! With the exception of the way the tail pipe hagers are supposed to work, great system / great sound, plus it will last forever.
