Are you going to put it on the SCed E39? If so, in for some sound bites.

Actually this is for my 97. I was in the process of replacing the CATS, but ran into a dilemma where the end of the new CAT ID doesn't match the ID of the of the cat-back. During the removal of the CAT-back for costumed work I realized the sucker was so heavy this prompted me to look for a different setup to save some weight and perhaps some new fresh air.

Some pics for fun.

I'm jealous of the lift in your garage. Good show Alex.

No exhaust system needed work yet, but I may go the same route when the time comes.

Thanks TMV. Oh yeah! You should be.

BTW, is that a new addition to your sig? What is it? Can't tell.

Wait! Is that a 300Z convertible?
