Brullen header and exhaust
I opted for the Brullen header and catback in quiet mode with the dual tips.
When I recieved it I was pretty please with the quickness of the shipping.Not the greatest in welding work I have ever seen but overall a good product.The installation sounding pretty simple and straightforward.Then I started.
First problem:The plug for the CEL fix was missing.Forget about finding one.Went to 8 stores to try.So I had to use a 40 dollar piece from a tap and die set to plug it for now.
Second problem:Bolts for the cat to the catback dont have enough threads so I could not get them to tighten.Goo thing I changed my sway bars and endlinks.I used those bolts.
Third problem.All the other bolts are too small in diameter and the wholes are all to big on the flanges.So they never could line up properly and I keep getting a exhaust leak.My next step is to go to a muffler shop and let them fix it.
Last problem:I threw the CEL fix in the garbage.All the clips were filled up with welding material so there was no way to get them on the plugs.
My overall estimation,For 1100+ dollars the fit and finish could have been much better,but I must say the performance gain and sound was well worth it.The car sounds like a monster and pulls nice up to redline.Still needs time to adjust and I need to get a intake but I guess I must give it 2 thumbs up.
