I kept the 6 pin connection in the engine bay but tucked it away up and out of sight. this way I could disconnect and remove, if something ever happened to the fitech, without the need to pass the connection through the aluminum.

Anybody make track specific side pipes for low DB days? After trying my best to find a set of the Flowmaster slimlines (discontinued) I am now looking to alternatives. I know there are some good pipes from vendors that fit the bill, but most are pretty pricey and will drop power (always a...
