    sayang. I s there somewhere we can order that Y pipe?

    The Y pipe is available at all muffler shops or you can have them custom made at the shop.

    Some how the video is nothing like what it is inside when driving. The deep sound is fine except the drone just gets to be too much inside, when the rpm goes above 3000 the variable valve kicks in it sounds like an open exhaust at that point. So I basically threw out $300 for the custom set up I will save the pipes and maybe if I find a resonator that will fit I can use the set up again. It really needs a second muffler or resonator to make it quieter and maybe give me back my low end torque. Well mods cost money so I guess I just have to live with it.

    My seats are good, I've had Cover King leatherette seat covers since about a month after buying the truck. I later found out that the materials used on the non-OR/NISMO models wear out real fast. I know some guys in the US had it replaced under warranty but most buy covers to prevent the problem.

    If you have Costco in your area you can get it from there or just go to their website and look for an authorized dealer in your area or in Canada you can order from online. I bought mine from one of their authorized dealer online but can't recall the name. It was $200 for the front and the same for the back if I recall correctly.

    BTW I'm back to stock on the muffler and have the low end torque back, also started gaining my mpg back since I lost about 1.1mpg with the muffler.

    We are still doing all the requirements for the move and if the govt still wants to move me there then I go. But mt wife and I have put a deadline on when this can happen and if still has not happened by that time we will be looking at other options. Believe me if it was our choice we would already be there 6 months ago but the process I am on takes some time because of the requirements that need to be done.

    Laying off the X for now and will be modding the Magnum, I have some parts I ordered and should be getting here in the next few weeks. I am looking for rims but all the have are 20's and those only look good but make no real sense to me, so I am looking for 17's or 18's at the most to try and keep it light. Besides the only 20's I like are the Viper wheels and the AR Torque Trust but they are out of my budget.
