Default Need your advice

I need some advice with the following:

1) I am looking to do a exhaust upgrade. I want a deep idle and take off growl and have been looking at swapping out the muffler for a super 40, but have heard there is a bad drown? Does anyone have video from inside the cab?

2) I am looking to do a front leveling lift. How much should I do to get a good even look?

3) WHY THE HECK ISNT MY IPOD SYNCING!

Thanks in advance,

Nick McD

Sounds like we have a similar list. I am putting on a Corsa exhaust (sounds great and boast no cab drown) http://www.dbexhaust.com/product_dis...px?product=842 . I am still researching leveling kits but haven't decided on one yet...leaning towards hell bent steal 2.5" front and 1.5" rear. Let me know if you find anything similar and I will do the same. Good luck.

Had a super 40 on my truck at one time and the drone was awful. Cut it off and sold it.

If I am just doing the muffler swap, what would you recommend for a nice growl during idle and take off?

Thanks,

Nick

Is the Corsa a true bolt on install like the descript says? I had a corsa on my charger and it sounded great.

benefactr,
I actually didn't do the install myself and I haven't had a chance to take a look underneath
because my wife was out of town and it was just me and my 9 month old son. I know the shop said it took less than an hour and there was no issues except the fact the tips wouldn't fit with my bumper or without being bent. I will get under and take some pics for you as soon as I get a chance. And again, it sounds awesome.

As far as your your Ipod goes

What radio do you have, 3 letters right lower corner of the radios face plate, do you even have the module to connect to use Uconnect
there is usually a connection in your upper glove compartment

the Ipod 3 doesn't seem to be an issue with our vehicles, they seem to work great
the Ipod 4 has to have the latest software update from Apple, at minimum version 4.2, i believe

go here for more information
