SLPs are loud. If you haven't ordered a set yet, I know someone local who is about to remove his and put them up for sale.

Worst metal as opposed to what? FRPP made in China or all other aftermarket Cies that goes there for their products.
So here's your choice: Made in China or....................Made in China!!

To your credit though, if you meant that Pypes fits like schit more often than not and have poorly engineered clamps etc... then forget my sarcasm, cause I agree.
But as far as metallurgy, the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree.

I know that is not a reply to me, but I won't be going after the pypes bomb now anyway, I have my mind set on the slp loudmouths, I did everything possible to quiet my v6 down and when I put the v8 in I am going to do everything possible to make it loud.

Some new updated pictures of the progress, I got the frpp manifold today, so I decided to set it up there and snap some pictures of it. I found someone who is selling some loudmouths and will keep them for me until next week. They will run me $200, which isn't bad, but if anyone runs across any with a better price let me know.

I have no offers on any of the v6 parts yet. They are still in the car, but they will be removed the 18,19,20 when I do the swap. I am located on the Outer Banks.

Keep us posted. I'm looking to do a swap to V8 in the next year or two, really curious to see how it turns out for you. Maybe I can pick your brain on a few things.

Well it will be very soon, the plans are to do it the 18,19,20 and I am pretty confident that I should have everything, but typically there will be something missing.

It's easiest to find a donor car so you can have everything there in hand for the swap.

Take the time to look for them, the deals are out there, people tend to be lazy and want others to do the work for them, the other benefits of getting a donor car is then you have the ability to part the remainder of the car out depending on where the damage is and once you part it out then you just scrap the car and still get some cash for it. If you go to copart.com you will see some of the cars they have and some of them sell for 3k.

You're right, those sound horrible 40k worry free miles. Man I wish I didn't get such a cheap set for my exhaust. lol

Looking forward to seeing how this turns out for you OP. Good luck with everything!
I completely agree! Pypes bombs are one the best sounding exhausts for GT's however Pypes exhaust for v6er's is a different story.

obxdude018 and I have made a deal for me to buy all the leftover V6 parts when he is done.

I can't wait to get rid of the automatic. It's really the biggest negative I have about my car!

My friend has pypes shorties, pypes x pipe, and pype bombs on his 6. Sounds unbelievable. I dont think you know what you're talkin about
