I didn't even know that was a thing.  Pretty awesome actually.  I don't think I have ever been happy with where any door stops.

Installed them today. Only took 10 minutes. It's nice, my door doesn't hit thee edge when parked in the garage.

You can see the extra notch in the top one.

Well, Down-pipes are ordered. Did some work on some trucks (upgrade installs) and putting the money towards the last planned performance mod.

The owner at Full Race has been quite nice to me, so they will be coming ceramic coated.

Pretty stoked about getting these on. Should open up the exhaust quite a bit.

Down-pipes are on their way!

Should arrive when I'm back home Thursday of next week. I may work from home on Friday and throw them on. Itching to see what they do!

Scheduled shipping with Fed-Ex so they arrive on Thursday!

I've been driving the truck to Seattle and back for work over the past few weeks. Racking up mileage that I can expense. I already told the wife the funds the truck makes the truck gets to spend...odd that she didn't see it that way too! :bore:

Man, these things are very well made. Glad I got the ceramic coating, should keep them looking good.

The welds are amazing.

First JP shows off his new wash buckets on the dining room table. Now you show us your new exhaust on a beautiful hardwood floor. How the hell am I supposed to top that?

Yeah, gotta have something for the little guy to do while you try and get in a few reps.  :uugly:

DP's installed yesterday. They were a major pain, every nut/bolt/fitting fought me the entire way. I put a set on a friends truck and it took me 2.5 hours. Mine took me 7 hours.

You sure can hear the turbo whistle now! I think it sounds really good, but the wife thinks it's too loud. I'll leave it for a bit and see if she gets used to it.

I was contacted by another tuner as he wants to use my truck to do some data logging and help him get together a tune that will work with these turbos. I get a free tune out of the deal. I told him I'm in, so we'll see how it goes.

Nope, she hates it. All well, I'll throw the stock cat-back on it when I have a chance.

In the meantime, I'm on the road so much that it shouldn't make much of a difference.

Did you try to explain to her that her opinion is wrong?  Haha
