    Minor Accident = Good Outcome

    At the beginning of August, I was driving home late one night, hit a rock on the road.. yes, it was a pretty big rock, but I thought I could clear it. Afterall, my car isnt lowered (as is pointed out to me ALL the time). Must have been laying just right and caught my passenger side catalytic converter, mangled it and pushed it against my floor board, denting that.

    Took it to the garage, put in an insurance claim and $1400 and a month later (Exhaust was on backorder)..... I have a new exhaust manifold and a Pypes catted x-pipe system (had true duals previously). So all ended well

    Here's a video of a little drive-by (my first exhaust video and not so good) Pay special attention to the end when I am coming to a stop.. that's my favorite part ....

    And 2 new photos, just because my car was in the shop for a month and I missed driving it and taking pics

    Lol, it sounded good when I could hear the WOT in the distance but when you got close it had a lot of road noise..

    holy hell.. no one else that saw the video had anything bad to say about it, other than I should have went by the camera at WOT... .... I did state in my first post that it wasnt a good quality video, was my first exhaust video....

    Should have known better on this site though.

    Thanks anyway guys

    and Chadder, buy me the shit to lower it and I will, otherwise STFU

    I know you are all gonna rip this apart and be like "if you didnt want criticism you shouldnt have posted it" blah blah blah, etc, etc, etc...I know the drill. Why do you think I took the time in the first post to say it wasnt a good video and was my first exhaust video.. but you guys feel the need to post the obvious. Oh well. Just lock the thread if you guys dont have anything decent to say about it.

    I like this site, but I really get tired of all the bashing.. not everyone has money to do these cars how YOU want them done.

    I'll get called a leg humper, oh well. I really like your car, you have done tasteful mods for little cash flow. The video isn't that bad. I have actually never seen a good exhaust video. You just can't capture it correctly.

    looks really sharp, are those the fr500 wheels or whatever they care called, i think they would really go with the car better if they were black, it would be secks! did you get another manifold? or actual headers

    okay I just rewatched the vid since last time I was too busy figuring out if the pewter blur was your car. apparently it was. exhaust sounds good.

    with regards to Chad's post: it was a simple suggestion god damn. he even put "". I mean really.. i can see getting mad if he said something close to "lower that POS, then I'll bless your car with my comment"...

    Thanks, appreciate the compliment.

    Anyway, the video, at best, was to give an idea.. not to be a major motion picture on the big screen

    They are the FR500s, and I personally dont like the black ones. Just don't look right IMO.. but to the others who like them, more power to them

    The tech at the garage told me header, someone on another forum told me exhaust manifold.. whatever.. it was replaced on the passenger side, as it had bent when the exhaust was pushed up against the floor board.

    Thanks for 'rewatching' it.

    As for Chad.. I know it was a 'joke'.. but I get so sick of hearing it. Point in fact that my accident was without it being lowered and had it been, i'd have been replacing a front bumper too. It is something that just irks me.

    I do appreciate the 'advice' but I dont need it, as I think Ive done pretty well with my car over the years in how Ive modded it.

    Thanks to you all for being nicer. I appreciate that.

    and thats coming from a guy thats not a big fan of them.

    don't let any of the posts get you hyped up. most of the time they're not trying to bash it's just constructive criticism, and alot of times the wording comes out wrong. all you have to do is build a car that your happy with and make that the priority.

    Christ, take a fucking joke. The ONLY reason I said that is because you said:
    Afterall, my car isnt lowered (as is pointed out to me ALL the time).
    so chill the fuck out.
