    Cheap exhaust

    Bought what I thought were "slip-ons" - under $500 so no complaints. But they were NOT slip-ons; they required that the cat(s) and EXUP be removed and THEN slipped on. I have an easier solution: simply remove the stock (UGLY) mufflers and weld on some chrome tips, available at any muffler shop

    Vmax sound

    So I noticed something that bothers me on the vmax. It may be normal on it but I've never heard it before so maybe some of you more technical folk could enlighten me on this. Everytime I am standing at a light or something and I have the vmax in first (or probably any other gear), I shift to...

    Cam tapping sound at idle

    Muscle Kit, Sound Improvement??

    I was wondering this and wanted to ask for a while now... I have Sean's Kit installed but there's a lot of work to be done before she's Dynoed and tuned. Should a Kit make a noticeable difference in sound? I was already running Jon's Slashcuts 4-2 which were already tuned and Jetted and she...
