OK - So, I am going to whore my car a little, cause I love it.

The Various Stages of my beloved "Fade To Black" - I also have the TWM shift shifter installed and a custom Eclipse stereo system. I will take more pics tomorrow.

Stock as Stock Can be - Snow and all:



Spring Has Sprung - Still stock!



My first Mod - Projector Headlights









My second, Third and Fourth mod(s)- Injen Intake FTW, DC Sports Carbon Strut bar & 15% tint all around.




The wheels:



And Now (Yes, I know - it needs to be lowered)









and a video of my exhaust - Magnaflow 2.5" Catback system

Looks good. I would of had black if my last black car wasn't so freaking hard to keep clean!

Do you have any video or sound clip of the exhaust from outside the car? It sounds good inside....I'm looking to buy an exhaust but I don't want one that sounds like one of those Walmart noise cans you see all the civic hatchback drivers racing around with. :D

I will try and get one for you - maybe tomorrow :lol:

The clip is from when I had the resonator delete - I put it back in because it sounded like crap.

My system is stainless magnaflow 2.5". I highly recommend it.

I am actually going to write up a product review for it and some of my other mods too.

That'd be awesome if you could make a clip.

Mind if I ask where you purchased it? ie. Online vendor or local? Being on the extreme East Coast I highly anticipate having to order my exhaust from the mainland.

Thanks for doing the sound clip . Sounds good!

I'm still undecided what I want. I've been looking at the GM touring exhaust, but the $500 price tag isnt very appealing.

For $100, the magnaflow muffler is a good alternative...though it won't give the same HP gains...oh the decisions.

Here is my theory - the exhaust they put on our cars is excellent! Stainless steel and the original weld is like no other. Most exhausts that equip bigger tubing require more modifications to have it fit - the downpipe has to be bigger to allow it to fit properly. Also, most systems have a resonator delete which in my opinion causes the car to sound very raspy and it sounds like it is back firing on downshift (I know this because I had the straight pipe 2.5" stainless system on and I took it off for just the muffler).

I don't notice a difference in HP between the two, if there is it was not noticeable.

The shifter took about half an hour - the hardest part was getting the tiny little zip tie through the top of the shift boot to secure it to the metal o-ring for the new shifter - that took about an hr lol.

As for the seat covers - I challenge you to find something nicer that will not only fit our cars but last. Seat covers are the best investment IMO when it comes to saving the interior of the vehicle - especially high traffic areas (the front seat).
