Yes, stainless steal. :). Post up a vid once you get it installed.


May happen sooner or maybe later toward summer. Depends on the finances and my continued research. Every time I get close to pulling the trigger on the exhaust someone suggests that the muffler delete sounds better. I haven't found any real videos of muffler delete non-S cars driving apart from ones with resonators removed which sound atrocious.

That is understandable. Sometimes you just have to go with your gut.
