Half-way through the bead:



Cat flange, still glowing hot:



Final post-cat weld. Gorgeous!



Final cat flange weld. Beautiful!



Finally fixed my digicam... Shown here are the parts with three coats of 1200* silver rust stopper paint:

Not at all. I am about as bitter as they come right now. First, Josh was out for the week before Thanksgiving when all this started, and when he got back, shipped my new S bend so I can complete the system. BUT... Because of the holiday, the damn thing won't be here until tomorrow. Then I have to take it to Mr. Thompson, have him cut to fit and weld the reducer on it before I can re-assemble the whole system.

HOWEVER...

I started the car with the cat, piping, and muffler clamped and in place, and it sounds like half a cubic yard of cow manure. Undrivable. I can't hear myself think. I drove it around the block to get it warmed up (haven't driven it in two weeks since all this has been going on), and I think my ears are still ringing. Not to mention the property value of my house taking a sh!t because of the complete *******/rice factor...

Looking at Josh's SVT Contour systems- They have resonators... Thinkin' I'm going to need a pair just to keep the 11.08:1 compression under control. This is my daily driver, and I don't need to go deaf right now.

These are your friend

I used these and they made the car tolerable. BTW I have a 22"L 4" D magnaflow and these two resonators, still a little boomy but livable.
