Thanksgiving fun

So today I had some fun installing my. Megan racing axel back wow it was fun but a challenge doing it myself. It was all going smooth until I realized I was Down 4 nuts. Here's my question, do u need the mesh rope things on the exhaust and does anyone know te best way to align the muffler because the tips on the left are lower than the right. Besides for that mess the sound is awesome. A nice deep growl in the low rpm and once up high its like a louder stock version.

The zhp shift know on the other hand ... Is amazing shifting is so much smoother I can't believe I haven't done this earlier. Well it's done now and I've fall'in in love with my car all over again.

Well anyways happy thanksgiving all and enjoy your rides!

I've had 4 diff exhausts and none use the grounding straps and I haven't had any issues so I would say it really doesn't matter much

For what? There isn't any electricity flowing through the exhaust, is there?
