Default Borla and TRD Intake Installed (pics)

Well installed all of it yesterday. AMAZING!!! the borla is awesome sounding, i love it. Gives it a nice deep tone. NO RICE! im really impressed for a four cylinder to sound like that. Its great. And the intake is amazing too. When i step on it, it gets real deep and aggresive. I would suggest this set up for anyone looking for that performance upgrade. It looks and sounds great!! here are some pics!!

Post up specs of the tips, too. Pleeeease???

I'm looking to getting my exhasut done but with dual 4" tips. But I think the 4" may be a little too large and/or ricey... Plus, the all stainless of the Borla attracts me.

It did and it ____ed me off for a long time. And it was sagging a little bit more than the other side. But i fixed that by loosening the clamp and putting it where i want and tightening the clamp.

As for the specs the tail pipes are 3-1/2 inches tall and 4-1/2 inches wide. So 4" tailpipes would look fine. I would do it

Default Wondering about towing hook on install and mileage

I'm interested in the same setup; two questions.

1) Instructions show the left hand support goes where the towing hook is attached. Or so I read. Do you lose the towing hook?

2) Also, how's the gas mileage since you changed? Besides the extra power (and better sound) I was hoping for a mileage increase under normal (gentle) driving.

1. The set up doesnt involve the tow hook i dont think. i dont have one on mine so im not sure

2. Under normal driving i did see a little better gas mileage. I have the biggest lead foot so its hard for me to see what kind of mileage i really get. im getting about 16-17 with my lead foot
