so yesterday i had gotten out of class and i was on my way home when i was behind a honda civic with a big ass can that i cant stand the sound of. so i was behind him at a light and when it turned green he took off so i droped gears and went into a open lane and caught a light with him. at the light he took off and was all excited because i was only at 1/4 throttle untill i hit powerban then BYE BYE RICE BOY i caught him by the top of first gear it was over right then. i know this isnt a great opne but it is like the first race in my ta ever and the first time i have been able to let someone go and catch and pass them.

I had a Honda with a huge fart can on it come up next to me the other day (i was in my jeep :mad: ). I just looked at the kids and the way they were acting you would think they were in a brand new Corvette or Viper. It just looked like they thought they were the baddest thing around. I think because of so many ricers having Honda's i'm starting to think negetively of Honda as a whole. I know they are good cars and have long lasting engines but it seems like now a days if you don't have a import your not cool. Not that i'm really trying to be cool, but you all know what i mean.

Can anyone explain to me what the facination is with fart cans? Are they supposed to make the cars sound faster or more powerful? Do they do anything performance wise? I think all they do is make a 4 or 6cylander car sound like a overgrown go-cart. I mean besides annoying people and having people laugh at them :roflmao: what is the point?

Well you also have to realize the power gains are relative to the original horsepower. I'm not arguing for imports just stating a fact. If a car only starts out with 140 hp your not gonna see 20-40 hp gains from exhaust mods. Besides not all imports are bad, its the import drivers that give them a bad name. My friend has a bad ass left hand drive silvia that could woop the shit outta me. Like I said its all relative, I was on another forum and this kid was talking about how fast his sentra was stock. :roflmao: I just thought to myself, if thats fast to you dont ever get behind the wheel of a V8

Can you explain to me the need to add dual exits on a catback when an f-body doesn't come equipped with true duals?

It's more about the look than anything else. We like the look of dual exits, they like the look of a wide-mouthed exhaust.

exactly and i think it is mostly looks on an f-body but i know a lot of people with true dual. personally i dont see why gm didnt put true dual on in the first place. i think what gets to most of the muscle car guys about cans is the blender sound not the look.
