I got it in the car and took it for a test drive.

I never knew what "resonance" was until tonight.

Holy CRAP. My head is still ringing.
I love it.
No way I could drive this car every day with that pipe.
I's like being in a prop driven puddle jumper on takeoff!
Above 3K it mellows out to what it should sound like. WHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
Man, it sounds tough. But the resonance will kill the project.
No matter, I have a new pipe coming in next week.

Oh, and I do not care what people may say but the car was hands down FASTER. I gave it a couple gooses from 3.5K. BAM!
It totally reminds me of my old SC. Now we're talking.

I can't wait to get the new pipe in there and get it all buttoned back up.
Sadly, the FRANKENMUFFLER will now be torn apart to salvage the two imput flanges and pipes.

But, she will live on in my memory as the first major exhaust failure of my life.
There are sure to be more.
