    This car is not a peach. It is a precision instrument, and will be used as such.

    Nice work Rob! Car is looking great. That intercooler looks awesome behind that front lower grill.

    I'm so glad you were able to get it out and drive it.

    I'd love to hear how it sounds with that Vibrant muffler. I think the magnaflow cat-back performs the best of just about any out there, even with that "squeeze" down to a single 2.25" outlet at the end of their muffler. I think that little joint is what causes some people to have that whistling problem too. I had considered trying to find a way to replace that rear muffler many times. I really am interested to hear how it works out for you

    I removed my catch can and swapped to the M56 valve cover a while ago, I got tired of having to remember to empty the can. I kept the catch can for a couple weeks after install in the M56 valve cover and had barely anything in there, so I considered it good and pulled the catch can at that point. Others have had mixed results with the M56 cover, but then they are often trying to solve different problems too. There's a huge thread on it on e46f.
