Well, he cut it below and above the airbag cover so it doesn't look too horrible. The corners are the part that annoy me the most.

I had this problem with my RS as well, though I never did find a solution for it. My throttle cable worked perfectly and my throttle body was just fine as well, but it would still just immediately jump from idle to like 1.5k RPM

Granted, not as extreme as your 3k RPM, but still, it seems like the same issue.

Did you switch back to your RS cable?

Sorry, that was actually when my car was still N/A with the original engine. My car is DBW now with the swap.

Not gonna lie I like the exhaust on your old SRT-4 better than the big coffee can style ones I see around here.
