I had my exhaust redone today. This one-man shop replaced the Borla reasonator with a generic brand and then replaced all the pipes creating a "tucked in" and much cleaner set-up. I was concerned about how it would sound and I was quite relieved that it sounded even better. It wasn't any louder but it sounded more throaty. I am very pleased. :approve

I'm fucking impatient as hell Mike. I bring it back to the original shop tomorrow to finish the sub and then Nick will be down on the 18th to help me with the Carson bumper, HID fogs, headlights, tails & trunk lights and the ambient lighting.

How are things on your end, aye?

Got my IS outta storage this past weekend and installed all the new suspension parts. Now I'm just waiting on my front and rear bumper and front are rear lip to get back from the paint shop. Should have it on the road by next week!! :bigSmile:

If I remember correctly from pictures I've seen before, I think that new job looks much better. Very cool, Mayo. :) It's awesome how much you do to your car.

Did you use to have some chunky ass welds going on? or is that some other guy with a duel exhaust setup? These welds look quite a bit better, but they still don't quite have that nice roll of quarter look all the girls are into ;)

copy cat!!! jk
I believe the correct phrase is "benchmarking" ;)

You are right on the first point. I'm not sure what girls are into anymore but my wife loves me. In fact, she told me that just a few days ago. :lol:

This was the guy I should have brought my car to last year but he was building a house at the time and then had knee surgery. I just couldn't get on his schedule. I was really concerned when I stopped by to see the progress and the Borla reasonator was on the ground. I really didn't want something that would be obnoxiously loud but to my surprise it just sounded better. He actually painted the welds black last night and I will pick it up this morning. :approve: I'll get some better pictures today.

Coming from a guy with "TRD" in his screen name, I would say I'm in good company. ;) Thanks bro.
