    The day has finally come... new exhaust being installed today. Woo Hoo! New Cat, 'Ravin' Performance muffler and dual 2.5 pipes out. The past week driving with just the cat has been loud and fumey.

    Well, originally they both exited behind the left rear tire... now I have one out each side at a 45 degree angle behind the rear tires. It's sounds great! It has a low rumbling aggressive sound at low rpms, and sounds kick ass when I get on it. The Midas guy mounted the muffler horizontal with the ground versus tilting the rearward end higher... he says that mounting the muffler at an angle like the stock one was, causes condensation to run to the lower end and shortens the life of the muffler. I'll have pics up soon.
