...where is the sentence punctuation? It's difficult to tell where one thought ends and next begins--difficult to understand--sorry.

Interesting, on the 1.8L, does the stock muffler go straight back like that? I know on my 1.4 it sits under the trunk and the piping enters and leaves on the same side of the muffler... Suspension differences?

yea the 1.8 was this big huge thing stuffed under the trunk im feelin a good 7-8hp its doesnt down shift as much when on the freeway it has passing power and also it shifts normally around 2500 rather than 3000 and thats driving easy following cars not being a slug

Hmm, interesting that they didn't create the exhaust in the same configuration as stock. I wonder how it is mounted there.

From what I understand when the muffler is configured like it is stock (having a the tubing enter and exit on the same side) the muffler costs more.

Good to know. No worries on the grammar, I'm sure my editing abilities disappear when I'm tired as well.

Is Doug Thorley a local shop near your or do they make aftermarket exhausts? (I ask because I've never heard of them)

Good news. I kinda of figured that with the cat right there it would make a header or down pipe very difficult. Im wondering what is the stock diameter of the factory pipe?

Also what size is he upgrading that axleback too? I hope he keeps the price reasonable. axle back should be no more then 250 ish

Downloaded their installation instructions for the 1.8 L system and they were not written by an English major. Doesn't anyone proofread anything? A picture of the actual system and parts would be nice also.
