Should something go awry, I'm just off 115 in Cadillac, on m55... I've for some parts that could be sacrificed in a pinch if need be!

Like the exhaust talk. I am looking for a good set-up on mine also. Cat-back as well. I have had a couple Borlas on VW's and loved them. They make a great product.

Thanks man, I will definitely keep that in mind! I'm hoping I can finish everything tonight and drive it tomorrow to put some miles on it and make sure everything will be ok for the trek.

One thing I need to start looking at is a cat back as well... The GReddy system on my car is HEAVY and the muffler is starting to blow out the perforated core. Anybody want it? 50 bucks.

I has cat-back exhaust thanks to boosted04! Sounds AMAZING, i would post a video but my phone camera sucks for audio. Got the Cobb series and its awesome, not too loud on the highway but plenty loud when driving. I'm amazed at how they made their exhaust sound so good

I would prefer to get a Cobb since I have heard nothing but good about them. I'm not sure they even make a cat-back for my car though. All I see online is WRX and STI for 2005. Any of you guys know?

The axle-back portion will fit. The entire cat-back is a bit too short to fit.
Several companies make a full cat-back for your vehicle
Have a muffler shop Move a hanger and do something with one of the flanges.
In other words, you CAN make it fit, but it wont bolt up direct. HKS makes one for your car

RS25 is a good site

You ordered the exhaust from Roland Sands Designs?

I think Cobb is fine, but more for the guys who either have tons of money to throw at it for new parts or for the casual modder who just like to bolt things on and not worry about stuff. I think that shows because of how quiet their systems are, and how user friendly their AccessPort is.

I'd rather stuff that is either made to fit, or custom (like a Tactrix and an Open Source tune. )

Some of us like how they sound damn it! But I agree, I would never buy any of their stuff new.

I think you missed my point: I was saying that I prefer things like OpenSource, rather than an AP and a OTS tune.

Rob, what brand up pipe do you have?

Set up for EWG? V-Band or two-bolt?

I also wanted to ask about your Grimmspeed parts: Did you have any problems with them? I'm looking specifically at the TGV Deletes, P&P on the turbo, maybe the intake.

http://www.grimmspeed.com/catalog/index.php

Does that site work for anyone else? It just keeps reloading the index page regardless of what I click on.

I got it from Nhat. I think it's an erz or eBay that he slapped a 38 mm tial on Seems to be working. Not leaking. Like those pos Borlas I have laying in my garage.

I would say try to source a grimm speed kit. Are you gonna for sure go ewg? They legit. Maybe find one used. It's just metal.

So I got those IDs in. Idles like night and day without my tuner touching them yet. Gotta do some hear pull logs still.

On two of the four 50 injectors that we're ****ed. The part that goes in The rail was gone. I don't know of the E 85 killed it or if was a manufacturing flaw. I'll post pics later.

You don't need to buy a grimmspeed solenoid, you can buy a Mac valve and get same performance for much cheaper .... Not as pretty of packaging though

Having said that I think ll are fairly easy to setup
