installed VS exhaust

hei all,

Just thought i'd mention i just got back from the shop after installing a new VS titanium axel-back system. Waited close to 6 months fer this thing to arrive but its all good and dayam itzs loud!


but my question is the muffler seems to be on an angle (which is fine) Only thing is i THINK that its meant to come straight out. can anyone clarify?

also it JUST touches my rear bar...obviously not a good thing. is this gonna be a big problem? im going back tomoro to have once of the 'supports' bent slightly to accomodate fer the slight angle. Only thing is the guy cut away one of my stock rubber things holding onto the hanger (coz he couldnt get it off) and later on replaced it with another one...surely this was not the cause of the problem????????????

well just on my ride home...serious loss of low end i reckon. it was weird. like at the lights i tried to boot it, but there is a slight lag, a lot of noise and then its all good again and the car goes really nice. gonna have to get used to all this noise tho...first aftermarket exhaust i've had...lol.

but anyway does anyone know if the VS one os MEANT to be on an angle? COuld the change of the rubber hangar be the cause of all this nonsense?

I love it loud. You will get used to it soon. It's fun because people hear the roar of the GTS motor. thumbsup
Congrads and enjoy

lol i know its meant to be on a slight angle. But not enough for it to touch (and theres also a slight burn mark) on my rear bar. i got it all fixed now. its now still on an angle but away from the 2 sides of my rear bar so its safe.

i have gotten more used to it. pretty cool and i started a new roll of film so i'll need to finish it all up before i can post pics! lol i need digital camera bad.

Thanks fer input! thumbsup
