Started out with removing my old rattling cat then realized that being cheap wasn't the way to go and decided I needed to buy a new muffler and do this job the right way. Oreilly auto sold me the wrong muffler so I returned it and ordered a flowmaster super 44 off amazon which should be here by Wednesday. I really gotta start thinking about my projects before I start them... lol

Thanks a ton for posting that video!
No problem. The credit should actually go to another member, as I used the search feature and found it. I wish I could remember who.

I would recommend driving around in a hilly area to see if it acts up at all. Mine was a bit confused as to what gear in needed to be in the first time I adjusted it, so I pulled over into someones drive for a moment to readjust it. So far so good....I think I might replace all the sensors around that area too. I was soo shocked when it just slipped soo smoothly into each gear. All my stress gone. It had some seriously rough shift points, and would kinda buck forward a bit when shifting and clunk a bit. It was a bit more lively and loooved to downshift. But this suits my more sedate driving style. Infact, it's a cool night. I'mma go drive.

Found something cool:

Yeah thanks a lot. Actually just went out and did mine. But it was a little different. Mine had no clip, just a button I pushed. Push it, slide cable forward and release. Done! Sweet stuff!

Let me know how the 44 sounds. Probably one of my next orders.

I'm doing the exterior of mine in a couple weeks with this stuff. What color did you go with? I'm not gonna use the textured roller they give you, I wanna have it so it looks like it was sprayed on. Post up pics & if you're not going textured could you let me know what type of roller you used, & where you bought it?

I'm going with desert sand an black I'm going to roll it in because I'm to impatient to wait to get a compressor/paint gun I'll be doing the textured roller I did my interior in brown eyed girl and came out pretty well

I'm going with Jungle Love so I can keep it close to the original color. I'm going to see what I can find for a different roller since I don't want any texture on the outside, hopefully I'll be able to find something. I decided on Monstaliner since the only thing that gives it the texture is the provided rollers, none of that crap filler in the can.

Nice that was my second choice and ww2 my third. I feel that desert sand would hide scratches and dirt better though.
