Cant wait

New Fabspeed exhaust on order and a full set of Hankook Ventus v12's coming in next week. Looking forward to some traction and a little noise out the back end!

I'm jealous! Which fabspeed exhaust set up did you order? I have my eyes on the same set of hankooks but waiting for a deal to come out hopefully by the end of October.

Not as much as I'd like, unfortunately. I do plan on hitting the Grand Prix viewing on Sunday at Brumos, though.

I am also in the process of ordering the Hankook tires. A local car dealer wants $700 for all four including balancing/installation using the Hunter balancing machine. They are also offering a $100 rebate on select tires. If the Hankooks are eligible for this rebate I'm going to order them.

There's a great Greek place around the corner of the plaza (near ABC) that makes a mean gyro. Mmm gyros... Not far from my house.

Do let us know what you think of the exhaust... I am likely going to be doing the exact same thing, just the maxflo fabspeed exhaust around end of January. Curious to know your thought about stock vs. just that...
thanks!

I will do so. Fabspeed has a back log and should be shipped by Monday. takes 3 days to arrive so I am hoping to spend 3 hours at the shop next week while they do it...probably Friday. I am going to do my best to get some video.

@Deserion - I am thinking we should meet up real quick somewhere in between when it is done and then you can actually be an unbiased judge of sound, etc. Thoughts? I was told by both Fabspeed and the shop putting it in that it is a pretty significant sound increase over stock. I hope so...
