Re: Side exhaust

Ok I will in a little (I'm on my iPod) kind of just got informed by dad that one on each side would be hard cuz of clearance issues , so now I'm thinking one or two on the passenger side

if you ever lower it the side pipes maybe a problem. and your car looks desperate for a lower ride height.

Yeah it does, the only problem Is I can't find lowering kits for my car specifically, plus my yard isn't very low car friendly and neither is my town

im not really sure honestly. i dont know much about the 2.3 in general so it would be hard for me to make a good opinion. but i do think it would be unique, and if thats what you want i say hell yeah.

Glad you followed your gut and went through with it.

No excuses 93! I have been hearing you need a job for a long time. The last time I needed a job, I went to 40-50 places over just a 2 day period filling out apps and turning in resumes. It's hard work, but that's what it takes. (In my fatherly voice). Not to give you a hard time, but just to give you a tip. This also may seem selfish but it was also because I want to to see more turbo 2.3s. Hells yeah.

No for real though good luck man.
