Don't let that get you down, your parents were concerned about protecting your investment. If you'r driving a new GT prem and still live with parents, that car has a significant cost and the concern for doing it "right" is real.

And yes, you are able to do it yourself as you proved fixing it. But sometimes thats not the point.

edit: good point follow up on multiple parts and making sure the price is fair

Post Script: My Ford Sports (Borla Stingers) did needed the TIP re-aligned by the dealer about 3 weeks later on the right side. Now I am wondering if this is common?

Wait... The Ford sports are basically borla's! What! They cost about as much as my RTR's...

Are the Ford Sport axle-backs really the Borla S-Types or are they the Borla Touring equivalent?

Also, I've been hearing about that problem for years now with the 11'-14's so you're not alone.

Yes, Ford Sports may cost a bit more than Borla Stingers, but they are the same and have what I consider great logos on the top of the enlarged tips saying "Ford Racing" in the Ford Oval.

Even a kicker, they put a Borla Hat in my Ford shipment box for me.

California.

I need some side pipes... The RTR's are too quiet, very throaty, but not aggressive enough. I'll probably get the boss side exhaust kit eventually.
