New exhaust installed

So i got this exhaust monday evening, and tried to swap it out real quick that day, but i lost all sunlight & then it rained Tuesday and wednesday ALLLL day long.
So this morning was bright and sunny, I let my daughter stay home from school & she helped me out. Handing me tools n such. She would crawl under the car asking questions - "whats this?", "what does it do?"
I have a feeling Im raising my own lil grease monkey assistant! lol

Welp Here it is =)
Ill put a video up tomorrow.

great job, and thats cute, I cant wait for my son to get here so I can show him all my hobbies too! I felt the 2 hardest parts of the install for the exhaust was actually taking that huge muffler off at that coupling spot right before the gas tank sized muffler lol, the next was getting it in the hangers bc the rubber, so I put liquid soap on them and they slipped right into place.

WTF!? You guys are over exaggerating my post. The pictures of that kid was like shes the one that installed her moms exhaust. So, i just brought it up, and made a comment about installing my spoiler that i just bought. What is wrong with that! You guys are making this like i'm that...hell no! I have 2 kids of my own, and i would never do that to anyone else, so STFU!

Did you have to wait for that on back-order? I ordered mine back in September but they said that the single tip was back-ordered till about Christmas time. I settled for the dual tip at the time because I didn't want to wait till Christmas.

That sounds just like what a pedo would say....

Good choice on the exhaust. I definitely loved mine. Nice job getting your daughter involved! Even if she doesn't end up with an interest in cars, just a general knowledge will put her ahead of many girls.

Yeah the most "annoying" part was taking the Rubber Hanger off of the Midpipe.. but after i WD40 them.. it was easy peasy.

Nice!. Mine is also the 09+ I have grown to love the twin tips since then tho. Props for doing it on the ground! The new mufflers are heavy. Heavier than stock. I used a lift at work. Nice work. looks great!

Whatever! You have freedom of speech, but your an *** too! I made some of your comment in bold letterings, and that is what i meant about getting that kid to install my spoiler! I never even thought of that BS you guys are telling me! That is all.

You better get them plates changed!

Almost 6 years down the road and I still like my RB.


As far as the old one, I gave mine away to another forum member.

Given yours is an 09, someone might actually buy it.........maybe start a for sale thread? You won't get much for it though.

So you did go with exhaust after all, hmm?

I envy your daughter. I never got to stay home just to mess with a car. Then again, my dad's never been one to do anything with cars, though he is a tech himself(Doesn't like to deal with his own stuff after doing others all day, I suppose.), and my mom? Well.. Haha.

But regardless, it looks pretty sharp.

Planning on getting a dyno done at any point?
