SVTPerformance has a how-to on doing it but I can't get a link on my phone right now. I'm waiting to get a new catback before I polish mine

Clean the hell out of it, sand it with a certain high grit wet sandpaper. Then use a metal polish on it. Should get it nice and shiny. Maybe 2000 grit or 2500 as a final step before polish.

Price depends. You can buy one and swap it which will usually run in the $1K+ range. Or you can trade a Cobra owner who wants a drag car. Labor for the swap if you wanna pay a shop might get expensive

I'm curious, do you take it off when you lift the car up? I've been curious to see how people do it

Interesting. I would have thought that the axle would have hit the pipes when fully extended

I thought about getting IRS exhaust for my SRA. But i don't want to deal with any possible interference, i'm just going to dump my exhaust once i get my Watts Link (which is still in development)

Wouldn't it hit your torque arm anyways?

Possibly. The part that i have the most trouble hitting the torque arm is the flanges that connect catback to midpipe.

Ah gotcha. I feel like clearance would be tight going under the axle as well

Only one way to find out. Idk if it would work with the MM sway bar and a WL though.


Bullitts are better than Bullets
