NOW! to complete the though, traction and gearing goals for performance and for hyper miling are quite polar. i dont think i need to explain that. so that brings this thread back on topic, and also adresses two area of working towards better fuel economy that i will ignore.

Good chance of me picking up the car tonight. I'll try to get some pics for you guys. Right now it's on frame analysis after the work is done.

Anything I should look in particular when picking up the car???

It's only going to be $650. I should only cry about the fact that Irwindale PD screwed me like this. There are plenty of horror stories on them online. They even give out tickets to cars that have a completly stock exaust systems for having a aftermarket muffler. I just don't understand how you can give out a ticket for a completly stock exaust system.

If your muffler is too loud or too low, it just is, that's how.

The completly exaust system was fully stock. Means that it is within sound levels and height levels.

Now please get me some tips what I should look for when picking my car up.

Just if everything is fixed, it's not like you have to listen for a tick.

Anyway, I've heard plenty of mufflers on 1.5" exhausts that're louder that my cousin's 3" straight pipe coming off his turbo.

Picked up the car. He did a great job but the fender was a POS that I got from e-bay. It had dents when it arrived and was cut a little short where it meets the hood. The leason learned is buy fenders from the dealer. You get what you pay.

Was the fender some sort of aftermarket copy?
