The duals are made of stainless steel and are 2.5 inch in diameter.

Nice low rumble when accelerating and no irritating noise or resonance during highway drives. :D

To picture is reworked, because at the time of the shoot, the last pillar chrome trim (d-pillar?) wasn't in yet, only b and c and the corners in the front window. It is in today, so it's gonna get put on real soon.

I thought I saw those last time I saw your sig! So which mufflers did you use? Which cats? Did you get a Clear Image type cross member, or? Resonators?

Thnx guys!


The stainles polished steel "chrome-look" pillar post covers I got from Ebay, but any person who is handy enough can make some paper traces and then make them out of a very thin piece of stainless sheet of steel which is then polished/buffed to the max. Some 3M adhesive and there you go!

The duals are very basic, but sufficient.

Right before the rear axle, you've got the bended piece of pipe which goes over the axle and as soon as it is over the axle, it splits up through a t-pipe and into a U shape. At the end of each pipe, they have build a small muffler to prevent backfires if the engine is revved or when you de-accelerate. The tips are attached to the inner bumper. with a hook and some ruber te prevent resonance. From the cat to the rear axle, the single pipe has no mufflers. the only mufflers are the ones in the rear. Very small and handmade, but very effective.

Forgive the looks of the bottom of my car, since I have to get it cleaned up this year. It has been somewhile since it has been POR-15-ed! :D


Oh, I gave up on the smoothies, since I can't find a good address here in Europe to get them for me. I need the 5x5 7J 15 inch smoothies, but somehow nobody seems to be able to get them. And to import them myself through airshipping is way too costly.

So I settled for the racing discs I now have on my car.....these are even more rare over here....

Newsflash....guy at the wheel shop did order the smoothies without a downpayment and without notifying me. I'm gonna pick them up next weekend and have them installed in the last week of April. A total of 650 euro for a set of smoothies...outch.....


Whaddayaknow?

As soon as it is done, I will make a new post and will show some pics.

Here is a little photoshop of how it is going to be:
