Very nice... Love'd my magnaflow when i had it.. SHAVE THAT FRONT PLATE... haha.. is used some generic plugs from auto zone and some GM color matched chip paint

Did the previous owner tell you how much high RPM track time it had? Gold front calipers are a road course badge for a V..

I just noticed that myself... you'll probably want to inspect the seals on those calipers for good measure.

I am really digging the sound of the Magnaflow, just need to get the tips realigned so they fit the bumper cutouts right.

Getting rid of the front plate is next on the list of things to do

Yes the previous owner had it on the track a few times, I will have to check the seals just in case.

Thanks for the comments guys! So far I'm loving it, however this UUC "short shifter" is a joke compared to my old Subaru and Honda. Any suggestions?
