strangelove,

What browser / OS are you using on your mac? If you use Safari, you can click the bug button in the upper right hand corner and describe the problem you're having so that Apple can work on fixing the problem. They're going to need all the help they can get since MS has stopped developing IE for OS X.

Apple cut their own throats in the 80s by not allowing cloaned machines, and ever when they did, it was very , limited and way too late.

Well, Apple doesn't have the commanding marketshare but they make excellent hardware and software. I bought my PowerBookG4 in 2001 for school and it's served me quite well and was competitively priced. The ease of use and intuitive design is what keeps me using the PB at home and at school. My wife is the major user of my PC at home now. I like wirelessly working from the couch vs. being at the "computer desk".

Luckily for people who like choices it looks like Apple is going to be around for awhile.

Great article until he switches languages, right around: "Also, the temperature of the exhaust coming out of a cat is higher than the inlet temperature, due to the exothermic oxidation of unburned hydrocarbons in the cat."

I agree JeffV, some of the info in the artical is way over my head, but I think I get the basics that bigger is better for your exhaust. Was thinking of getting the Bassani Duals, but after reading the article I think I'm going to look for a 3 inch straight through exhaust. Don't think I want to negotiate installing duals if a single pipe will do the job. Anyone have any suggestions. I'm planning on installing Mopar's Stage I & II (when available) and a cold air intake.
Thanks for the Apple info, DTs, I agree Apple makes great computers that look good too. Have you seen the G5 !!! Wow, industrial Design in overdrive. I'm using Mac OS 10.2 with Explorer as my browser. You would think that MS would have spread there script around if they are making software for different platforms. I might get safari when I upgrade my OS, but I hate switching browsers and all that it entails. Why can't software just get along. Microsoft sucks

Strange - tell me if I'm missing something, my read from the article seemed to indicate that exhaust systems for our HP range in excess of 2-1/2" was a waste. So what's the difference between 2-1/2" and 3"?

Thanks, just want to be sure I'm not missing anything. Also, if anybody has installed a 2-1/2" straight back, please provide details, including pics if possible.

Thanks.

I have a 2.5 turbo to mid pipe, Cat. delete with a y pipe going to the drivers side with a cap on the end. when I want to play I take the cap off and the gasses come out the side. look on the PVO pt thred and you can see the pipe. it is between the doors and on a angle. sounds MEAN!
