I drove the R today in the slush and snow. Started getting a hard vibration and the sound like a brake lathe running from underneath. Mighty scary. I would have said its a bearing locking up any other time. Thoughts?
Yep, it will. I had mine removed for $40 at a local shop. Exhaust will also sound better at 4000+ RPM
Also, theres a bracket under the car thats gotten the name EBOD or Exhaust Bracket Of Death, something hits that thing, it will get pushed into the exhaust, pushes the driveshaft and f*cks up your entire drive line. Have them remove that.
