^^^ thanks Ocsmb, i appreciate the compliment!! however, i think what you are calling a cigar is actually my chins stacking up, lol.
we did a 30 mile trip this last weekend. hit speeds of 70 and didnt notice any drone, but like you say, theres plenty of room for an additional resonator if it does end up bothering us at some point.
and i am going to get that tuner. just havent taken the time to get the code from my ecu for my guy to order it. kinda wanna run a tank or so through to see if the exhaust affects mpg at all. I suspect it wont, but i still wanna keep track just in case it does. im a anal ocd bastard...
i took a closer look at my uppipes too and both are leaking. any easy fixes that anyone knows about? found a set of uppipes that were bellowed and guaranteed not to leak, but im not paying more for those than i did this exhaust. wanna run the idea past the guys at the shop.

took another camp trip this last weekend to a national bird refuge just outside of town known for good fishing. havent been there in years. forgot how cool it was. showed up friday at 5pm, found level ground, unloaded cooler, made drink, grabbed chair to go watch everyone else setup their tents etc. i asked them what was taking so long to get setup and had 7-8 people flip me off at once along with a few snide comments. ill try and record it next time. it was comical.
our camping spot. i was standing at the waters edge for this snap, just didnt get a pic from above. mistake
while we saw all kinds of birds, we couldnt get any pictures. which is too bad, cause we saw a really cool looking owl up close and personal.
we also saw fish jumping the entire weekend, but all the adults caught was a buzz. the kids landed a few fins though.
wife showed up about 11pm after she got off work. she forgot to go to bed and got in the van at 7am. we had a rallyx at 9. she was in fine form, lol. we drove 20 miles to our race, had a blast thrashing our car and headed back to camp. was checking out a place called initation point near camp and found this guy was sitting in the middle of the road catching some rays. he hissed for a bit, but didnt bother showing teeth. was super mellow after i held him for a second. took him away from the road and let him go.
also caught this small little fella. he tried like hell to bite me. was a ferocious little guy, lol.
from the canyon edge.
on the way out.
was a fun weekend. had quite a few friends show up and with kids we ended up having 22 people at one point. its getting warm enough to stop messing with these easy to get to camp spots. looking forward to exploring a few hard to get to spots now that the snow is gone...with just the wife and I.
stopped by lowes on the way home today and picked up a roll of reflectix. had enough to make covers for every window with a good 5'x2' piece left. made me realize how different the tint between the front and rear windows.
with all the pieces in place, it was damn near pitch dark inside. going to get a thermometer and see what kind of difference the reflectix makes as soon as our weather stabilizes a bit and we get 2 days in a row with the same temps.
