Does anyone know the diameter for the exhaust as I am going to do the "JRL" patented removal of the center resanator. I've called a couple of local shops and they only have the 2 1/2" and 3" stainless steel and I'm not for sure what the diameter is and neither place is exactly close.

That would be 2.5" piping.

Thanks, had it done today! Now, did I get ripped off? The guy only had "aluminized stainless" and told me that would last longer than the car probably would and hardly anyone uses pure stainless steel exhaust. I paid $65.00 and they installed the Takspeed cable also, did a good job with the welding.

Re: (C130)

I think there was a whole thread on this recently. I'm thinking of doing this also. Did you notice a big difference? More importantly, if you were my wife and I didn't tell you I did it, would you notice?

BTW, 'Props-n-Proud'.

If you're a wimp and have to hide mods from your wife, DON'T
If it's your car, do what you want, if it's her's, leave it alone

I did this to my wife's car, but I told her about it before hand.

If I had tried to hide it, she would have noticed. It's loud the first 5 seconds it starts, especially in the garage. But she's already gotten used to it.

Just when I think you've mellowed ... you strike again.

Well I just asked my wife if she noticed the difference and I got the "well, you never let me drive it enough to know what it sounded like before" line, so I might be of no help. I agree with JRL, it's my car, I'll do what I want to it as she has her own car, which I will also do what I want . (hopefully she won't read this) I can tell a small difference on hard acceleration but most people probably wouldn't notice it at all in my opinion.

Nothing to do with mellowed and who said I had?
There haven't been any stupid posts that have bugged me
for a while now and some of the small ones I'm letting roll off my back BUT.... but when someone needs to have their wife's permission to do a mod on their OWN CAR
My generation has an expression for that but I will keep my 100%

Geez, kinda hostile for a Volvo driver aren't you? My post wasn't directed to you, so maybe you could mind your own business. I don't believe your post contributed anything to this thread except to put me down.
