Thumbs up Straight Pipe Install!!!

I had my bassani x-pipe installed today along with straight pipes and off to the track i went.The track i went to today i always run 12.92 to 13.01 everytime in 75-82 degree air at 106mph.Today when i was racing it was 76-78 degrees the whole time and i ran a new best of 12.83 at 107.40 and backed up by a 12.87 with no cool down! I feel that this setup is the first exhaust catback that actually improved my e.t times.I was running 1 tenth faster and 1 mph faster than anytime before this in the same conditions!
ib happy!!!!!

Matt

My local muffler shop put it on in about 11/2 hours. I watched them and the stock system came off easy and they just had to get the right bend off of the x-pipe and mount them to my stock tips from my system and they charged me $70 for everything!
