      Ok so the new exhaust system is done, here are some pics.

      Initial impressions... WOW. The car runs substantially better and has much more power with the 3". Really makes the car more complete at the current boost level, was definitely held back with the old system.

      Will get some GoPro vids up later this week.

      Planning on putting it back on the dyno later this week to see the exact gains with the new exhaust.

      I am probably 70/30 on WiTW. I have a vacation a few days after so I am juggling a few things.

      Also, after driving the car now, I really need to upgrade my brakes. What brakes are you using?

      I am working on the instal of a 20th turbo kit on my own car. I have really appreciated your post because HPA has thus far not sent complete instalation instructions, and I am an amatur. I notice you ran your plug wires under the intake manifold. Looks clean. How is the access when changing plugs?

      well i am new to GoPro but am figuring it out. Took a nice vid of me going through a tunnel.. windows down to try and get a sense of the sound of the new exhaust.

      Still trying to find the right place to mount, open to suggestions!

      No one was really in the tunnel and the guy ahead of me tried to be a hero, for a short time.

      Got to ride in this today and I'm mildly upset that I will never have that kit on my car shy of winning the lottery that I don't play. Mike let me know about the CVP kit and what I would need or we could work out. Don't neccesarily need the cvp2 but what I would need for cvp1. Thanks.

      knowing your car sounds as badass as it feels is an awesome feeling. Why hide power behind a stock exhuast when the 3.2 sounds so good!!

      I actually put in a exhaust dump (I mean why not?) and I have yet to flip the switch in the tunnel.. I am afraid I might scare people.

      An exhaust dump in the tunnel may earn you a friendly chat with Port Authority.

      And you will soil anyone else's pants who happens to be in that tunnel with you...

      Thanks... I ordered up the big 'ol hog that HPA builds for their 20th KIT. I'm having them do quad exhaust though! I'm praying they finish up soon.

      Just got off the dyno ... still at 15 psi, 93 octane. Before exhaust I was at 368 to the wheels now am at 425! Nearly 60 whp gain. Need to lift the rear or roll the fenders for next time as I was rubbing when I hit boost.

      Thanks for all the and pics, was great meeting everyone and already looking forward to next year.
