definitely going to get some video/audio of the fun after they're installed. Currently the car has single 1.75" exhaust, going to end up with 2.5" dual instead. I suspect I will notice a difference!

Nice!  Are you doing headers with the duals?

 
I was going to ask, how's the parts ordering from Summit for Canadians?  I have never ordered through them before.  Is it like RockAuto where you pay all the fees up front so you know what it's going to really cost you?

you should notice a difference...my car had stock manifolds with 2" duals. i went with shorty headers and 2.5" duals it made a noticeable differenceThumbs Up engine runs smoother now.

I haven't bit the bullet on headers yet. The only ones I can find that should fit are the Sanderson FC4 headers, the ceramic coated ones for $514 US aren't cheap. I'm aware that FPA would make headers for me that are guaranteed to fit, but they certainly won't be cheaper. :-(

Summit's pretty decent. You know what you're going to pay before it ever ships. My last order shipped out of Ontario - at least online tracking says it did.

yes, I'm a slacker. but I finally have some video!

I start the car with the boring mufflers, rev it a little, then open up the cutouts which sends the exhaust out the cherry bombs.


I can get some photos of the exhaust next time I have it at the shop for an oil change.
