Nice job, I have done this before and found it hard to cut the angles just right - I used a table saw with a metal cut off blade -- worked pretty good, how did u cut the angles ?

Also - are going to try and make a cat delete pipe this same way? I have attempted it, but found it hard to try and replicate the stock cat pipe. mostly just the bends and getting the angles right. Any suggestions ?


also forgot to ask one thing --- where did you pick up the nice flange ? also what size piping ?

Hmmmm, I don't hear a whole lot of boxer rumble in there. I think I'd have to hear a better sound clip, perhaps while driving to really decide. Although for the money you put into it I'm sure its better than anything I could do.

at higher rpms, it begins to have that rumble sound, then gets throatyier
yeah, im prolly coating them next week or something before winter settles...
it was extremely hard for me to cut the angles because all i had was a welder and a angle cuter..lol. and also working on low jacks isn't good..haha
haha yeah..ill try and do a write up on it.
oh and the piping size is 2.5, and got the flange from napa...forgot want item number it was..got it long time ago

but anyways...thanks for the comments guys
