Big update time!
Picked the car up with the new exhaust and could not be happier, its tucked up nice and high and sounds incredible with the Borla. I've never been disappointed by Borla and will continue to buy their products.
Here's a pic of the modified cats and where they hang at now
The next day after work I started on the front and continued onto Saturday working on the rear of the car. Theres a story of an hour long freak out when I realized I drove off the night before to test the front fitment with the OEM wheel lock still on a rear lugnut and having to take the lug nuts off sans lock but we'll leave that for later
After adjusting the rear camber and toe I lowered the car down for the first test to see if it would be able to get out of my garage. I was pessimistic but my roommate amped me up and off we went!
Backing out slowly...
Then a moment of PURE JOY when I got it out with much less scrubbing than I anticipated!!!
Don't get me wrong it scrubs backing out, I can see bits of undercoating on the garage floor and it doesn't make the best noises but hey, #staticlyfe
Needless to say driving the car for the first time complete put the biggest smile on my face. All the frustration and setbacks since March completely disappeared in the boom of that Borla. The rear was scrubbing some so back in the garage it went to raise the rear about 8mm and max out the camber in the front.
Yesterday on the highway coming from a friends cookout I even had a guy ask me if I'd sell it!
Put plenty of miles on over the weekend seeing if any issues would arise, the exhaust rattles some when the idle is really low at a stoplight so thats something I need to look into. Also not sure if you can tell or not but the front fitment is pretty bad, I need to get a bigger tire on there. I can't lower it anymore and still be drivable so this weekend I may head to the tire shop and figure out a 40 series size to throw on there to fill in some of that gap.
Also I promise to get better pics of it not in my driveway
