Hello everyone this is my first post as i just purchased my '04 s60R yesterday. I have been reading great things on the JRL mod but, I'm not quite sure exactly how to do it. I have looked all through this forum to try and find a "how to" but have found nothing. Could someone please point me to the thread or explain to me what i need?<p>BTW- This is an outstanding site...it has answered all of my questions!

Re: JRL Mod question???? (moravecb)

There is an approx 28" resonator in the middle of the car.<br>Cut off and replace with a straight pipe.<br>Very subtle, nice exhaust tone. Also remove the center "hoop" bracket. This allows more clearence in the center of the car and helps to reduce or eliminate possible driveshaft damage

nice to see another R owner in the carolinas! i got the JRL mod done last week and i like the sound and the peace of mind it gives from not worrying about that resonator and that bracket hitting anything.

Re: JRL Mod question???? (JRL)

I have a slightly OT, but still center resonator removal related question ......<p>I have noticed that at certain times (all when "letting out of the gas" after accelerating fairly rapidly) I get a weird tone from the exhaust. <p>I don't think it sounds like the driveshaft touching the exhaust (or if it is, it only does it just briefly on decel), but I'll check the next time I can get my car in the air. <p>Just wondering if anyone else heard it on theirs. Meineke did a less than stellar job on the removal and install so I would not be surprised if maybe they missed a hangar or clip underneath and the exhaust is just moving around a little more than before.<p>Thanks!<br>-Ben

No popping or anything like that, just a mellow hum. <p>It does NOT sound weird, or anything like metal on metal, or anything like that. Sounds good. Not too noticable if you've been accelerating hard, but if you've been accelerating lightly (like on the highway) and let off, it's a bit louder than the exhaust at cruise and more noticable.

Re: JRL Mod question???? (needsdecaf)

I would not describe what I hearing as a "pleasant" sound, but at least it is intermittant and not all the time. I'll just try and check it this weekend.<p>I would add ... caveat emptor as far as who you get to do the work. <p>-Ben
