Yes...very simply 1/2 the exhaust (& sound / don't get muffled). Less backflow and more sound. You still go through the cat, but not muffler. Go to you tube to see if you like the sound. I love it. Not too loud at low rpm's, but screams at high WOT!

Yeah you are probably right! I should talk to Joe, any way I'd like also order the dual tips also, and that will give me a good reason to call.

Well my bumperetts should be here today along with the clear side markers. So now all I have to do is take here to the shop to have the mufflers done, bumperetts put on, and have the LN screw on filter adapter installed. I'm still torm about lowering her so I'm going to hold off.
I'll post some pics of her before I take her in, thanks for asking.

Yeah no worries, saw your other post. I ended up customizing mine, and removing the bumper protectors. Just called fabspeed and the answer is no! If anything get headers.

If you end up really wanting to do the hack, pull the fabspeeds (you have to anyway), buy some used stock cans and do the hack on those. Then you can decide which one you want to stick with and sell the others? Idea anyway....good luck!

PM me pricing of the fabspeed evomit ECU if you got it yet. I have not heard back from my pm to him.

Yeah good idea,...too much of an ordeal. I will keep them and get headers and dual tips instead, just want make sure don't have issued passing the smog test and that they are street legal. Here in Cali we have a lot of regulations. BTW Joe never got back to me either, perhaps he's been busy or not responding his PM's not sure.

I actually love the clean look of no bumperettes. Mine is painted smooth in back too. Let me know what Joe says on the price of the ECU upgrade. I'm very interested! Thanks.

Well, he is in New Jersey so I mostlikely go with http://ecutuninggroup.com/ they are local in LA and their prices are very reasonable. I have another post going. https://www.6speedonline.com/forums/...ml#post3564231

I am looking for a front lower valance and lip, I'd like to change the one I have, do you have any ideas?

I have fabspeed muffler and headers on mine and the car is just out of this world loud. I go to LimeRock every year for the Le Mans race and my car is seriously just as loud as the actual Cup cars. Just get the headers and you will be very surprised in the sound difference.
