Default Silencer Delete Elbow

I just installed my Silencer Delete Elbow from RalliTek and it was a PITA. Unfortunitally I didn't have the camera to document the install and do a proper write up, but here it goes:

Tools needed:
10mm socket wrench
philips head screw driver

1: remove the screws for the fender under the hood
2: remove the screws for the head light and remove head light (can be a PITA to remove because it is a tight fit)
3: remove the screws for the air intake and remove the air intake
4: remove the air filter (just helps get with the install)
5: remove the screws attacing the silencer
a: one next to the air filter
b: one next to the fog light
6: remove the tab behind the fog light to remove the dirt
7: remove the philips head tab that attaches the dirt guard to the fram next to the wheel.
8: fold back the dirt guard to gain access to the silencer
9: this is the hardest part of all, remove the silencer, wiggle it, force it, it just is not easy. The tab that hold the fender flare may pop out a little, just pop it back when all done.
10: now that the hard part is done, I used the hardware that was on the OEM silencer to attach mine, just a little easier. I attached the hanger to the elbow and install the elbow from what ever way is easiest for you, for me, I just went up from underneath.
11: attach the silencer and work backwards to button up everything.

Now that it is installed, I have only gone about 30 miles, but I haven't really knoticed much differance in noise, just a little louder turbo when i get on it a little, but not much. I really haven't opened her up yet to really se, but I think that the engine is running a bit smoother now. Maby 1 or 2 HP but I don't know becuase I don't have not dyno'ed it yet. But I do seem to feel a more fluid power increase as I accelerate.

I had one for a few months and I didn't notice any difference at all other than the slightly louder noise.
