EMS Powered Exhaust (Experiment)

I had a pretty nice set-up w/ my Vanguard and Dinan Middle Racing. I get bored easily, so I bought this thing from a guy on the forum:

http://www.emspowered.com/storefront...roducts_id=766

The exhaust includes 100 CEL High-Flow Cats, 3" Header-Back, Four Resonators, Ceramic Coated, etc. I spoke to EMS about getting test pipes to replace the cats. They said they could easily make them.

I think there is only one word for the sound: INCREDIBLE! It's pretty much the best sounding thing I've ever heard. The only problem is that it drones like a mother%#&##%. The drone is very Eisenmann Race with a catless x-pipe like, but it is not quite as loud as that combo. I guess that comes with a custom, 3" exhaust. It's reasonably loud, but not super loud.

I may go do a dyno run to see if I made or lost power versus the previous set-up. My butt dyno tells me it's a negligible difference.

I also have a Dinan rear section sitting in a box that I'll end up putting on, but this thing sure is fun for now. I live/work in the area of one of the largest retirement communities in the world, so I don't know that I'm going to keep driving around town with this or my flashy 20" wheels. It certainly is fun for the time being.

Here is the video I made this afternoon:



On a side note, I was in my garage with the car up on race ramps. I was underneath making a few adjustments to the exhaust when I hear something clang on the underside of the car. I was completely under the car on my back. This 3 and half foot snake came cruising into the garage, came under the car, and bowed up on me. Needless to say, one of us came out alive.
