    Shit, I wish I had the brains to do this and it has to be fun to learn all the stuff involved.

    Assuming you mean the blower installation, you can do this. The install is very straightforward and the instructions on the DOB website are a life saver. Aside from that, there is a facebook group full of guys who have "been there, done that" and willing to help.

    On a side note, what axle back do you have on your car? I'm redoing my exhaust and we have the same cams so, I'd like your input on the matter.

    Cheap, Pypes stainless x-pipe should do the trick.

    You know I want to change them out but my wife has already said I have spent too much money on my car which I have. They sound good but after getting the LTH's they are really loud and with supersonic drone lol.

    What supercharger do you have? You know I can barely hear mine.

    I'm one of the few who did the h-pipe (kooks) to achieve more low end whether it really works or not is the question.

    This IS my wife’s car and she started to complain about the exhaust tone changing earlier this year. This must’ve been the Prochamber coming apart because it does have a terrible drone around 70 mph.

    When the car was still NA I feel like it picked up some low end going from the stock manifold with off road x-pipe to long tubes and Prochamber.

    She sounded like this previously:

    Dude, I had a Prochamber too and it did pick up some low-end torque and actually made my car quieter.

    Yes! At first it had Pypes cats and it was very quiet. Not the greatest video:

    I have since lined the exhaust up and managed to pop the belt again.

    Heh..

    The power steering pump locked up and that’s why the belt shredded.

    Fortunately, I have another one but this will have to wait until my next day off to tackle this.

    Finally had enough time off to change the stupid pump out and I’m back in the saddle again.
