    You have a video clip of the exhaust? I have one coming for my '14 Mazda3 sGT and I'm looking at getting one for my CX-5.

    Welp gonna order another one of these. stripped one of the bolts a bit when I was tightening it to factory spec. Except because I had the STB in there, the bolt closest to the inside of the car cannot be torqued to that setting because of the mounting bracket, and I sheared it a bit. It's still a little tight, but under big load it allows a small bit of play. Not a big deal really, but easy enough to replace and keep's my suspension stiff. It's only 20 buck there, I'll see what the dealer charges. KD35-34-380C So yea, basically you can torque the furthest bolt to factory, but the inside bolt will need to be torqued by hand to "tight".

    Now that you have upgraded from a 2.0 to 2.5, it needs a new name. Its sort of the son of your old vehicle.
    Chris's Chris_Top_Her_Son ... nah, that one has been used.

    I like this much better (no offense) that your 2.0

    I wanted to get white when I got mine but they didn't have any and I couldn't wait (jeep was failing to pieces)

    If you don't mind me asking, how much "work" was it to upgrade? I just hit 20k miles on my 2013 touring.

    pretty much just labour since everything is bolt on. I know how to do it all myself now, and I have a self help auto shop near me. probably about 1500-1800 in parts (- wheels)

    probably not anytime soon. atm the low is enough and I'd rather direct $1000+ other places. probably getting new tires next month, or the month after. I also want some lights. I wouldn't get coil over until I have a working camber arm anyways.

    Lol face palm, I'm interested in trading up also. I meant how much of a hassle was it trading in a vehicle with the dealer. I can imagine the time it would be to remove parts.
