    On April 20th me and a friend took our cars to Track Night in American at Heartland Motorsports Park in Topeka, KS. Then literally right after that drove to Long Island, NY. Had a BLAST at the track day. Was passing up GT350s, Camaros, Corvettes, FoST's, S2000s, and alot other cars. Many people came up to me afterwards and asked wtf it was and how it was so fast out of corners lol.

    COOL!

    Did you take on any 86es, and/or any M235s or the like?

    I ask because I have some dolt over on faschy BITOG arguing with me that our cars could NEVER EVER show the 'known quantity' RWD cornering machinery type rides the quick way around ANY road course at all, let alone a more 'open' circuit, even if heavily modded for handling/cornering due to beam rear axle and 'wrong wheel drive'. [thumbsdown]

    How far out on the Island did you go (you could've gotten an in person, custom tune from Dizzy ~3/4 of the way out ;) )?

    Now that you say that, no there where not any 86's surprisingly. There was a couple BMWs. One guy in a BMW the first session was going slow and wouldn't do a point by and got black flagged and immediately pulled to the side in the grass off the track when he saw that. Remind you this is minutes after the meeting we had where he said DO NOT pull off into the grass if you get black flagged. The meeting after the first session we were told that he apparently got mad and left after that

    We were in the Mastic Beach area in Long Island.

    Ordered my Whoosh 3" catless downpipe! Already have the Thermal 3" adapter

    Was a 50/50 toss up between the catted or catless since I don't mind having a cat and just peace of mind when it comes to inspections but I have a way. With the catless, a little extra sound wont hurt and I've heard the catless DP with the Cobb catback and it still sounded tame so I don't doubt the Thermal will still be composed, the extra turbo whistle is a nice add on too. The catless was the only one in stock so I decided to have that coincidence sway my decision.

    Yeah it shouldn't be too bad. I think most over exaggerate the smell. Its all relative. My motorcycle has straight through mufflers and no cats so I'm used to the smell and I can only smell it when I rev it at stop lights.

    Installed Whoosh's catless downpipe friday afternoon. Took only around 3 hours. Granted I had access to a 4 post lift so that helped enormously. People are right when they say the longest/hardest part is getting the originally cat physically out of the car but it wasn't too bad. My car only has 9500 miles so PB Blaster wasn't needed. Quality of the piece was great for the price you got it for. They say you can reuse your turbo flange o-ring gasket but since I have access to Ford parts I just bought a new one(only $3).

    Fitment was perfect, didn't have to fiddle around with anything, its nice that you don't have a big cat in the way so you are able to install the o2 sensors prior to installing the downpipe, just have to be slow and careful when installing it through the exhaust tunnel. I ended up not needing the de-fouler(knock on wood). I re-flashed to the Cobb Stage 3 OTS tune prior to starting up the car and so far I've put around a couple hundred miles on the car since and haven't had a check engine light. I'm glad I can finally use the Thermal DP adapter, its been sitting on my desk to damn long.

    Install: Once you get the old one out its a walk in the park.

    Quality: Really good for the price point!

    Sound: I LOVE IT! I was afraid going catless would ruin the nice subtle sound of the Thermal but it did not. Of course it is louder obviously but its not raspy, or obnoxious. There are moments throughout the rev range where you can here it howl but that may be my symposer as I haven't deleted mine. You can hear a nice turbo spool when revving and if you listen closely you can hear the turbo whistling just cruising down the road lol. It is hilarious because now on decel it just burbles for a bit and if you tap your foot on the gas it starts burbling again and I just keep doing that over and over.

    Smell: It may be me still being a youngin(I'm almost 26). But the smell is NOT that bad at all. May also be me being used to it since I have a catless bike with straight through mufflers. All in all it really is NOT that bad, the only time you smell it is when you coming up to the stoplight and actually stop, this is with the windows down and even then its not that strong of a smell. So the "smell" that people talk about does not bother me one bit.

    Any chance you could post up a vid of the sound when you have time?

    I personally do not like taking exhaust videos because they really don't get the actual sound but heres one someone did. I have the exact same exhaust setup as him and the video does a decent job of capturing the sound, sounds even better IRL obviously but you get the gist.
