don't know why i didn't do this before
i didn't think it'd make this much of a difference
went to mienike to get my axle back piece replaced from backing into a curb at like 5 mph...
well the damage was mroe than just the hole in the axle back piece, and the kink in the tube...
it actually bent up the exhaust through the entire way back...
also in the process the cat got jammed into the heat shield, and snapped my O2 sensor in half
so they replaced the whole thing.... (not the O2 sensor)
cat back.... (i still am gonna have to replace the midpipe that has a slight kink in it...) but they put in a single piece of tube, 2.25" mandrel bent stainless.... it's perfectly straight back to behind the axle, where it bends up and then bends out
2 bends the entire way back, that's it,
they removed the resonator, and it flows sooo much better now,
the power increase from 1.75 to 2.25 is phenomenal
now i just can't wait till templar's SC kit is done....
