      Out with the old! Techtonics dual resonator, high flow cat, with a borla muffler.

      used to be 2.5" turbo back

      ... or so I thought! What the hell?

      This **** goes down in a small hide out in the woods behind The Palace.


      I had a small car show at the house today, 5 hot vdubs at one point, managed to catch 4 of them paparazzi styles.

      Big ups to Matt for helping me with this one. Here are some pics from today's install! First, the supplies:

      1. Corrado Specialist,

      2. Hooch from SoCal, mask, and Borla muffler,

      3. Welder to tack everything in place and a chop saw,

      4. and Joe... err... Matt:

      check!

      And then it went down:

      Then thanks to mad v-band action she was off like a prom dress, ready too be seam welded.

      Thats all for tonight kids.

      The kinetic kits come with a 3" DP now so that is what i'll be starting from. I just haven't decided on going with a resonator or which muffler to get.

    13. 07-27-2008 04:04 PM #83
      Good. I would HIGHLY recommend doing 3" all the way back. Or in my case side.

      Im not running a muffler, just a straight thru resonator from Magnaflow just to cut the sound down a little. Open downpipe has made me deaf

      Thanks. I'm really excited to see the gains from the 3". When Raven is ready it will be time for a 3" down pipe as well. He'll probably wait till next year as steady progress can be more fun.

      And yes, you're drinking it wrong!

      but it's already done....

      UPDATE! Tapped a mini keg of Bells Two Hearted


      All welded up. It's a thing of beauty.

      V-Band!

      and finally, "Give it some Sauce!"

      The exhaust. The Ruination. The mini keg. The Stone Brewery bottle collection. The jar mug. All signs of a pimp.

      Well done, sir. Very impressive.

      PS. I went to Stone on Sunday and had 12th anniversary, Ruination and Levitation fresh off the tap. It was like ale porn. You need to visit again.

      That's Matt's car (d-bot). I have it in storage at my place while he's moving to a new place. A quick search by screen name should get you to a ton of awesome threads like this one: http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=3589924
