You never know till you ask. . You get what you pay for, you know that. (With that said) Each time I've been to Coffey, I was sure I would have spent more than I did. And Dustin. . I can't relate because I have helped him just as he has helped me but I can say he does great work. Just saying, you never know. . Kyle, I'd ask if you had your own set-up in mind.

Moot point in my opinion.

Not in particular. I really like the idea of the true dual set up and I've always loved the Racing Beat sound. On my old car I had the street header and presilencer and bought an Apexi N1 (god awfully loud) muffler. So I just went to an exhaust shop and had a buy bend pipe and weld up to that set up. It probably cost me around $1000 all said and done. So really spending an extra $400 isnt a huge deal for all of it in one go.

Got my exhaust in on Saturday. I was really dreading taking the old one off but it actually came off pretty easily. I also swapped out my drive shaft. Unfortunately Iím still getting the vibrations. So I guess I still need to figure out that .... maybe itís just the hideous wheels. But.... the car sounds great now and doesnít smell as bad.

The studs didnt come out.. the nuts came off fine though. I used the other half of my floor jack handle to break the 2 top ones loose... one was not even finger tight and the other wasnt bad to get off wit a ratchet.

Bent or out-of-round wheels will definitely cause vibrations. Forgive me for not going back through the thread but what's the nature of the vibration? My DD had a bent wheel. It was originally on the back and made a low, rumbling sound between 45-70 mph. It wasn't until I rotated the wheels and it was on the front that it was really noticeable, but again only from 45-70 mph.
