You are correct sir, I meant EL headers but if your doing headers you might as well do the uppipe. Moreover, if your doing the uppipe you might as well do EWG!! Lol

I do think the tone has changed over the two years that I have owned it. It's slightly duller, but it's barely noticeable during normal driving conditions. The only time when you hear it is when you have extra weight in the car and under load up a hill on the highway. Since that happens only once every other month, I have no complaints.

Over the past two years, I've listened to a hand full of other exhausts and this is still my favorite and I love the deep growl through all the gears.

We can send in headlights?! How much do you charge? I'd love to send you mine when I'm out on the ship (Navy) since I wouldn't be driving anyways.

I've been wondering where did you get the STi front plate delete? I like that style more than just a regular plate delete strip. Also did you use the JDM or USDM holes to mount that plate delete? I'm moving to a state that doesnt have front plate so I'm trying to look for some deletes.

Thanks

Yupp, got the plate at an overseas dealer a few years ago but you can get it easier now through FastWRX.com. It's labeled as a Marque plate rather than a plate delete. It also uses the USDM holes.
Cheers!

Thanks! Well crap, my USDM holes are not drilled and I refuse to drill them lol so looks like I'll need to shop on some japan website and pay some crazy shipping.............. OR some nice vendors here would have them in stock.

I love this build so much! To me the car is aesthetically perfect and the performance additions seem well rounded. Keep it up, I can't afford to do any major mods to my car yet so I'll just continue to enjoy mods vicariously through you, ha.

I am in the same boat. I refuse to drill. I have searched for a while and found one that uses the JDM holes from subtle solutions. Unfortunately they don't make them any more though. I contacted them asking if they were planning on producing again and he said maybe.

Attempted to take a few shots of the car before I change over to winter wheels/tires.
Battery is dead again

Using a Vagabond to slow charge today, but it's time for a new battery.

Odyssey, Optima or Diehard Platinum? Thoughts?
Leaning towards Diehard since its a re-branded Odyssey at a lower price and Optima used to be the top dog until they moved manufacturing to Mexico.

I don't have an answer to the battery choice, but great new use of the Vagabond! I both the Vagabond II and mini. My wife use to hook her breast pump up to the mini so she could still be mobile around the house. Maybe that was too much info... LOL

When I was looking at batteries awhile back I had found that the Walmart battery was the best bang for the buck and it came with a 3 year full replacement 1 year prorate. I bought one for my 65 C-10 and so far so good. It's made by Johnson controls which I believe make some of the other reputable batteries.

My battery is sluggish this winter and it's not even that cold in socal. Going to be putting it on the Ctek charger tonight and see if that helps.

Go light weight so I can see how well it does in very cold starts.

Think most people in that thread live in the south. In Michigan below 20* is normal and in fact warm on most January and February mornings making me hesitant.

That is great! We've found many other uses around the house for them as well. Paul C Buff FTW!

Well, I guess hers only plugs into the wall... You'd think that they'd all come with rechargeable batteries.
