i guess you can say its power programmer~ the access port is offered by cobb and can also be bought from perrin. it changes the stock tuning maps of the factory which are basically crap. when i had my car in stock tune, i felt hesitations and stuttering. the new programs smoothed out the hesitations while increasing tq and hp in your powerband. it is fairly easy to install and works by plugging into the obdII plug under your drivers dash.

looks like the actual pipes for the tips aren't 3", but that shouldn't effect anything.

let us know if both those tips blacken up on the inside..
i really like the single outlets. i think.

so it's not 3" throughout?
debadge that b*tch..
10,000 miles on the clock (I love to drive it lol) and no black soot in the tips which I also find amazing. Its going in for the recall/retune on Friday so possibly that may change things. Its full 3" to the muffler but its about 2-1/4 out of the muffler to each tip, like someone else said its no problem.

I would if I had something that recorded video. Maybe I'll see if one of my friends with a point and shoot camera that records video can help me out sometime.

I really like the exhaust, it seems to have gotten a little louder since I have put it on and it has the nice low rumble at low RPM's. I have yet to hear it outside the car but everyone says it sounds great.:tup:
