Chopstick Modification

So I modified my exhaust by doing the "golf-tee" modification - We called it the "chopstick mod" because we actually used a wooden chopstick in place of a golf tee - and also because we both are Asian Very easy to do and well......sounds better

So easy to do, a caveman could do it (Geico commercial)!

On the freeway home (90E), I raced a 650i when he passed me at about 85. I was actually gaining on him by around 100MPH...but then I was paying so much attention to the road that I forgot to shift up and the limiter hit I continued to floor it anyway and creeped up, but let go at 140mph. Oh well....this experience also tells me that I need KWs soon. Too much bouncing up and down on the freeway.

A wooden chopstick will most certainly leak over time.

It also tells us a lot more, too.

So the chopstick made you forget to shift?
