    JP.....It is not. :p Lighting differences.........homie.

    Dad....No hurry, I'm trying to figure out if I want to just "slap" those mufflers on or if I want to do a whole catback setup.

    Thanks D, hows yours coming?



    What do you guys think about this.

    I have a set of used LMS mufflers. (still good shape), should I do a full catback/xpipe setup, or just tie them into the stock pipe? Cost is an issue, but if it's going to sound like ass, I'll gladly spend the extra money.

    I think it would sound just fine to slap them on the stock exhaust.

    Thanks Brandon.


    I'm gonna try that way, if it does'nt sound........enough, I'll put a whole system on it.



    Bad news as well.


    I went through the car wash today and sprayed my favorite Eagle One chrome cleaner on the wheels. The wheels IMMEDIATELY started peeling and flaking off before I had time to get the hose pointed at them. I have NO idea what that was all about but needless to say, I'm in the market for new wheels.

    Updates on that later.

    I'm thinking about sending a nasty-gram to EagleOne's consumer complaint line and see what happens.

    Nothing financially feasible. (re-finishing, ETC)


    It's ok though, really. This gives me a reason to start eyeballing Foose and Coddington's.

    Yes.... I'm gonna take my current PBRs I have on the front and swap them to the rear. (Custom brackets obviously.)

    I'm also doing a line lock for the front brakes to "compensate" for no parking brake. He he.

    rear brake bias wont be a problem? and the master cylinder has enough fluid for that?
    seems like overkill unless its a bling thing.

    Bigger brakes are never bling.

    If bias is a problem ill buy a proportioning valve.... if lack of fluid is a problem ill figure out a solution to that as well. Ill even remove the ABS system if it gives me trouble.

    The only thing I am genuinely worried about is tearing up my brand new Ford strut rod bushings with the increased braking power.

    On page 3 he talks about the chrome falling off his wheels. The fr500s I assume.
