    If that's for a custom ABE hot damn.

    If that's for an install, let me take out my crack pipe and take a good draw.

    quick write up of DIY then.
    Tools needed:
    19mm Socket
    13mm Socket
    Socket Wrench
    Ramp or Jack


    Cool off Car.
    Lift car. prefer on right side.
    Unbolt 2 bolts.
    Pull out hook from Rubber hanger near exhaust tips. It is easier to pull out the portion attached to car.
    Pull out Rubber Hanger near muffler NOT on car. It was easier to pull out the hooks attached to Muffler, not on the car.
    Remove old Exhaust.

    When installing new exhaust, try to put a towel under the exhaust near where you need to bolt in so you don't scratch ABE.
    Install the exhaust tips and clamp on to system.
    Loosely put the bolts in, Nuts will be on the top portion. Make sure to install the gasket between the to points.
    Slide the double hooks to Hanger.
    Slide the rubber hanger on to the car hook.
    Tighten bolts.

    This takes about 45 minutes

    finished in about 1hr, had to run to the store and get locktite. Also didnt have 19mm deep socket so used 3/4 which worked fine also. Is this one of those exhuast when after awhile it will get louder cause of the baffling broke in? Sounds dec tho, love it.

    Well, We know that with CAI and ABE, we get a net gain of 13hp. If you get the headers, can you dyno? would like to know if there will be a gain or loss. if its a gain, I might be interested

    I am getting better mileage, even with being a little more aggressive on the gas pedal. My average has jumped up 3 mpg, give or take. Really depends on the type of driving.

    My exhaust does seem to have gotten a bit louder. Not to the point where it is obnoxious, just a little louder.

    They will possibly get louder and change in sound once they break in slightly.

    Looks like a nice piece, but Im not a fan of those c-clamps. I wonder whey they made it two pieces like that?

    My guess is shipping purposes and box size.

    Go back to my post regarding headers for this car. TK stated the factory exhaust headers in their opinion are a good design & see no gain by adding headers to the V. If Shark can provide the dyno results from the manufactorer of the header to prove the design then that would make an informed decision easier rather than just a picture of a polished SS header. Pretty, but is it really functional for h.p. gains That's a lot of dollars for "engine compartment bling" if no appreciable gain to be realized.

    That slip connection is for centering the two exhaust pipe outlets up/down & side to side within the factory trim bezel which I found useful for final tweeking prior to tightening the clamp, as a bonus it also reduced the package size as well.

    I hear a whistling sound right now where the muffler is. I might have a loose connection. hope to find it and tighten.

    You must have gotten the advanced version of the ABE, is it whistling Dixie......lol
    The flange gasket in place & bolts torqued ? slip connection clamp tight ? I hear nothing but sweet music from mine, well maybe the musics in my head.
    All kidding aside this system was an added improvement in performance and desperately needed sound to the V.

    On a lighter note, it mainly happens when I accelerate so it sounds like I have a BOV

    I'm about to order the TK exhaust and there's option that says add CAI which brings total to $573. Is this the way you guys ordered?Its cheaper than buying both seprately unless I'm missing something here that the combo kit doesn't give for less money.

    I ordered mine separately. The best time to purchase was Black Friday. Awesome pricing for both.

    So I am very flabergasted with my Turbokits intake and axle back exhuast!I had it installed today by a really nice guy John who is named "robotkilr" on this forum. The back was not that hard as we took of the back right wheel and the rubber gromets were a little hard to take off but took less than a minute. The axle back exhaust looks, feels, and is very beautiful quality with the nice smooth mendrel bent stainless steel exhaust with a more compact muffler. The new exhaust had a longer rod hangar so it was wierd but figured you slide the rubber holder along the rod to the hangar. The CAI given to me came in black because they were out of stock for silver for free of charge which was awesome :-). It was more difficult to install the intake because there was a lot of screws to reach to to remove the whole stock airbox. We removed the front left wheel and open the fender to get to everything. We tucked and sealed everything perfectly, that was the easy part. After that, we let the car idle for 5 minutes then I revved that beauty to life!I took it on the road and already felt the difference driving normally. I can just tap on the pedal and the car takes off better. Lane changing through traffic became a piece of cake without flooring it. Once I got to empty road I switched to sport mode and floored it. The car took off with a more "ooomphh" feel and I let it run through the whole gears and as it went through each gear the growl was so fine; it wasn't obnoicious and didn't sound ricerish at all. OOhh it felt so good. I went on the highway tonight man was that A THRILL! I will post pictures and video of my intake and exhaust soon Thanks Turbokits!They do not fail to impress.
