Yeah, the drone, and sounds a little ugly. Personally a little too loud for me..

Get around to the meets every now and then and see what some of the guys exhausts sound like, just to see what you want.

Either my car got used to big pipes and isn't accustomed to my pipes yet. But yeah free to check them out.
When?

That's ok, I'll take off that filter wrap later in the afternoon. I'll see if that thing is constricting airflow.

Seems like this filter wrap does restrict airflow even though it's used to help keep it clean. Exhaust note changed just a tiny bit, now have to drive it for a week to see if it'll improve.

Best part this past weekend was having my car shot by Work Wheels Japan and meeting the owner.

This week seems to be going along quickly, should be getting my car back on Thursday, hopefully it doesn't cost me too much in the end.

Milpitas meet should be this Friday if I'm not mistaken. Also, if you're still looking for a place to do intake valve cleaning, I'd suggest contacting SPEEDELEMENT in San Jose. They're the ones that did mine.

Milpitas Meet: We usually park our cars by Wang's Kitchen and walk over to Fantasia or Quickly's and chill.

Tanforan Meet: They park by the Starbucks and hang out.
