i'm sure none of you noticed i was even gone since i often read, rarely post, but i've been in mexico for the past two weeks. the whole trip went fairly well. got some pros and cons done to my car while down there. 1st con was that i blew out my rear tire trying to avoid a collision with a bus. i hit the curb and blew the tire out. 2nd con got some minor scratches on my rear fender. don't know how they got there but they're not deep so they can be buffed out. 1st pro is i got my k&n filter before i left and made a homemade cai for it since it was off a gt and it didn't fit in my airbox. car responded a little better after that. 2nd pro is i took the h-pipe and catback exhuast that patrick (aka-blckstang4me) gave me and had it installed. the only thing is that instead of the stock mufflers i had them replaced with flowmasters with dumps right before the axle. installation and two flowmasters for only $130 bucks. and my father-in-law paid for it and told me that that is my birthday present. car sounds real good and responds even better with the cai and the duals. only bad thing is a tremendous amount of interior noise due to the dumps. i guess i'll get some tail pipes as soon as i recover financially from the trip.
