I agonized over this issue for some time...then went thru Brian and Ben and had him put together an exhaust system for me using the SSI and his Y pipe design....and sticking with his recommendation to do only a "bolt on" application...also following Timc and SandMan's approach to a resale...."Here's the car with all the performance enhancing stuff....and here's the box with all the original stuff....you can buy it this way or I'll put it back and sell the goodies". Whereas I realize that the value of a factory slant being 1 of 47 is in its stock and unmolested configuration, the enhanced performance and driving experience....plus the addicting desire to "kick it up a bit" was just too overpowering...not to mention the fact that the process of buying and installing high end mods like Brian's exhausts, SSI...Tial wastegate and new intercooler etc....that process is almost therapeutic. The purists will holler "shame"....but I'm losing my sense of hearing anyway.
