My TM has gotten better since my install, I love it. I have the steel dualies, and boy do they growl nicely.
I don't even notice them rollin down I-20 at 75. Wide open boy, there is no BS, they will hollar at ya!
My wife even likes that sound, which is great!

So, I'm thinking of adding a Che header to this. Will it be unbearably loud? Are there even performance improvements over a gutted manifold?[/b]
itll get a little louder b/c theres no precats there to muffle the sound, but it will sound nicer...also your team moon will sound a little deeper once you wear her in

So no performance benefits? Pass.

you have a cai??? id say that should be your next step

I have an AEM lying around somewhere. For some reason I have some ambivalence in installing it. I've heard that the benefits (aside from sound) are roughly equal to a good sports air filter.

I'll buy it off you and send you my K&N drop in filter... seriously.

Why would this equate to ambivalence though? Your TM is roughly the same gig, very little added power, lots of added sound. Seems like after your success with that, you'd be hopeful for the same gain from a CAI.

..and you would be satisfied. It's a much easier install than the TM's, and the sound is great. Better yet, it's never obnoxious.

I would also like to remind you that you're 1zz N/A modding here. Power is not, or should not, be your main goal. We're trying to make the drive more enjoyable, however many extra ponies that might include.

A little helpful hints for removing the exhaust hangers: lube with PB Blaster then use slip-joint adjustable pliers
by placing one end on the hanger and one on the rubber connector. Squeeze the pliers and off the rubber connector goes with ease!

im getting dual aluminum TM exhaust soon and im crazy excited to put this baby on.

It seems like everyone puts the tm on and then the CAI however for me
i already have the CAI and putting on the TM so i wonder if i might get a different reaction out of these exhaust compare to the TM first and CAI second people

I found that regular dish soap, in copious amounts, worked wonders for separating the hangers from the rubber.[/b]
WD 40 and a sturdy flat head screwdriver works fine also

Brute force (pulling) and my face to stop the cat worked well too :p
