Time for a project update and a picture.

First attempt to fire was late Thursday, no joy. Returning to the shop Friday, a quick round of basics and found a broken wire leading to the CD box. Power restored and the engine lights.

I take a quick spin within the neighborhood to see if itís too noisy with only a straight pipe. Sound was good and some whine coming off throttle but itís too noisy between the buildings. Back to the shop.

Knowing it only needs a touch of noise reduction I set to fabricating a complete exhaust using the glass pack shown. Final product, the system LOOKs great, however on fire up itís noisier than a straight pipe! To make matters worse on acceleration it sounds like one giant GOAT FART. Worse than any homegrown tuner sponsored by Wall-Mart Automotive.

Assuming it will fit, tomorrow Iíll cut off everything and try out a Warlock muffler.

Iím dying to get this out on the street and begin dialing in the turbo systems.

Anyone need a slightly used glass pack?
