aight ill take a bunch of pics when I shoot some new vids in the AM when I am done with class.

they tuck in very nicely and I havent had any rub issues. the tires are wider than what I was running for my A/Ts. I went from 215s to 245s and love the handling I have now!

the "remixed" version wouldn't work for me at work here, so I'll check it out when I get home, but the other video of it next to it worked.

I love it. It sounds like my all time favorite car, a Taurus SHO.

To re-quote a quote: "I like it and thats all that matters. Thats why it's called customizing."

Personally I agree, the sound goes with the look. It actually sounds alot like mine when I un-cork it. Just a slightly deeper note.

The only reason I don't run mine open is cause it gets attention for leo's that I don't need. Maybe after some rims I'll un-cork again.

Truck looks nice BTW.

its funny about the attention. the police on campus were all over me for my dumped flow 40 and gave me crap about not having a tailpipe visible. i kno the law is that the exhaust must go past where the back most passenger sits, on a truck thats right after the cab.

i havent had any issues on campus with this exhaust. i thought i would be getting more familiar with the police but its the complete opposite.


i am curious if my tone is going to change at all after the roller rockers and pulley kit goes on along with getting the Xcal tuner

Honestly just because you change looks on your truck and went lowered doesnt mean you have to make it sound like a honda. Honestly that looks like *** on a mini truck, its not a honda so keep it off the them. Most minitruckers will actually laugh when they see that muffler on a truck.

My truck sounds nice and deep from the people who have heard it ask them.

see, i love everyone who's hating on the truck just because of one little thing. its mine, i like it and thats what matters most.

and how can u really compare the sound of a 4banger honda to the sound of a 3.0v6 ford... they are actually nothing alike. everyone just has these opinions in their heads and try to voice it with complete BS remarks.

find me a honda civic that sounds EXACTLY like my truck, and ill accept the fact that it may sound like a civic. until then, theres no comparison IMO

truck looks good, would look even better without the huge unnecessary muffler. It would actually look alot cleaner.

and yes it does sound like a honda, sounds like an accord.. with a fart can

It sounds like a Ford, which sounds completely different than a Honda. It sounds like an early SHO, which is a 3.2L while his is a 3.0L. Why are you all making a big deal about this?

Just dont understand why he wants to bring unnecessary attention to his truck, from people and the law. I get enough with my truck and its no where near that loud.

Not to go offtopic but I think a flowmaster or magnaflow or gibson or something thats more made for a truck, have it like a Lightning style exit.. But its your truck, you bought it and its your money you should be able to buy anything you want for it.

I have had way less problems with the niteshaded tails than I did when I was rockin' the AVS smoked tail covers

i left for winter break with a stock height truck with a loud dumped exhaust, illegal tint, and tail light covers with the police still giving me a hard time.

came back for spring semester with a dropped truck. less problems. then i got my exhaust done, niteshaded the tails, threw on new rims, and started using my behind the grill lights as fog lights. since then, no real problems at all. i mean sometimes I will get followed or have the police stare at me but I drive smart and do the speed limit. I think more issues come up when you have a modded out vehicle and drive like an idiot.

i have niteshaded tails too, i just wonder how every one does with them. I think leaving the reverse light unshaded draws attention away from the tinted tails, which is good. i like the look of dropped rangers.
