RRE headers are installed. First impression: it's a bit buzzy. You don't hear it as much in the car, but it's there. Between 3-4k rpm it's more noticeable (no buzz at all under 2k). Not the most irritating thing in the world though, I practically forgot about it by the time I got home. The throttle seems more sensitive and will react instantly to minor movements. I didn't change my driving style in the least bit and have peeled the tires on half throttle all around town. I didn't get a chance to flog it much as there was a lot of traffic, but I'm fairly certain it picked up a few ponies at the shop.

I smelled fuel just after starting the car up for the first time. Car runs very well with no CEL (yet).



Stock manifolds

Is that the stock exhaust? Has a pretty nice sound, I'd say.

Those stock manifolds didn't actually look half bad - but the headers are definitely a large improvement. Are they stainless?

Looks like installing them wouldn't have been too bad - getting the stockers off would be the hassle.

Yes, stock catback. Headers are stainless.

You're right, the real battle is removing the stock manifolds. Front one isn't too bad, but the rear one won't actually clear when unbolted. RRE recommends removing the passenger side axle to get it off the car. Add to that 10 years of Quebec salt & snow and countless hot/cold cycles, it must've been a real pita to deal with lol

Yes, and the CCCs certainly don't help clearances one bit.

Nice. Hopefully it doesn't sound too fart-canny.

Question, though, am I to assume any I see with dual exhaust outlets are not a factory exhaust?
