I have. No idea if it helped at all. Sound wise, it's appealing with the turbo whistle. You will want a defouler /j-bung so you don't get a trouble code from the downstream o2 sensor.

When I pulled mine off, I had installed a 3" catless downpipe that was meant for an SRT-4; direct-fit. At the time I had also installed a 3" o2 housing as well as a modified stock exhaust manifold.

Result? Significantly reduced turbo lag.

I believe it is still against Federal law to tamper with or remove emission control parts on Trucks and automobiles.

I bet no early release for this one!

I'm afraid the real inten here was to find someone had done this very thing. because a dear friend is in need of one for his sick GT. lives in smog country too. Seemed a good way to look for one. And be where the most tragic is. Some don't use the new threads button and don't see all the threads. Di anybody got one that's good? 767skyking is in need. Has help many on here. just trying to help him if I can come up with a replacement. Feel free to PM him if you like. See what you and he can work out. thanks to who ever can fill the need.
