That's cool. At least it's fun to drive!

Knowing the path and choosing the path are two different things.

all exhaust needs to be broken in...i think you are overthinking about how much power you expect from this exhaust.

It takes a couple of weeks for an exhaust to break in, atleast mine did. Maybe you were expecting too much. After all, it's only an exhaust & Intake. Header will make the most difference.

Yeah, 4 bangers dont get the gains that the v8's do with exhausts. Oh well, at least you have a nice sounding one!

2.01! HOT DAMN! It's only a 1.50 for regular down here.

And you guys can only get 91+ octane right?

It's 1.70 for 93+ Octane where I am.
