... well, I went to go have my patented JRL mod done today at my favorite custom exhaust shop, Great Lakes Customs, here in Michigan. Greg does NOTHING (no repairs, mechanic type stuff, etc) other than bending up and installing crazy street rod custom exhausts, and has for nearly 30 years. He has made a couple really wild from scratch systems for me.<p><A HREF="http://www.greatlakescustoms.com/" TARGET="_blank">http://www.greatlakescustoms.com/</A><p>Initially I just went to him for my JRL mod, but got to talking and thinking about tips. While I don't want to / can't do a full exhaust or anything under lease, I did want someting a little different (don't I always <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> ).<p>Anyways, I sourced some square, angle-cut, intercooled Borla tips from Summit, and Greg welded up everything in about an hour while I waited (and helped <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> ... actually, I think I just slowed him down ). He really is an artist when it comes to being careful and positioning things just so.<p>So, at the end of the day, I left with no resonator, and 2 new tips, and only 135 dollars poorer (remember, I bought the tips beforehand). Here is my JRL mod with a twist:<p><IMG SRC="http://www.msnusers.com/_Secure/0VAAAAMgXl9Su5p60GlzAzIx5aaIcaI7XRqxr!XokMRJr5kt4Qsh0e8z141r5Q3kV1qH71GBS0W554sFhzHu0*mK2zhv2vsGlL0X9uuL0SjLglSDacir8sn48NsH5rufT/IMG_1913.JPG?dc=4675572972012312824" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://www.msnusers.com/_Secure/0VAAAAMsXd9Wu5p60GlzAzAnhrPl3eGSkEY9lYXuLT!R43lEu0w6!Bch5dmFbdQ1aN8PvCEmWjP5Xr5pgM6ONkJbWWhwVKZ9NkVrWHixAinXy8jnwHloKUDAvCZ1CMD30/IMG_1907.JPG?dc=4675572972377655468" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://www.msnusers.com/_Secure/0WAAAAKAYiTWu5p60GlzAzDAG2KcrYUXfVPiepGER8eIeQqSsSorl7UORABkoywlkwoNyN4sAcZikXaT9BJkyCz03DJK3gRQ6wDNIPxjrO6RbFpeJZBf5ly*Y!RHUem9aAAAAAAAAAAA/IMG_1912.JPG?dc=4675572974438328283" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://www.msnusers.com/_Secure/0VAAAAM0XDdau5p60GlzAzIUgz684IUDSbcqU!ZNRHG1Yg!igVQUhtuddwjAdN7zUMdbVqE!xO2fj!4caxU50LyoGvvOdFfEOU!LYCFaA*h!9TwUtQd8lzulyR5RN7oHk/IMG_1909.JPG?dc=4675572973823945937" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://www.msnusers.com/_Secure/0WAAAAJ4Y6zSu5p60GlzAzIQeJTLwJHtZCvY5a4U335GAGFkK3*JzzRp77j6eTX!O!F!SWhqRBPlih3WsHaYoQ32mVLpUeAK5FPbA4l29ihjT3TL8gjcCLDi3MKOJOH52AAAAAAAAAAA/IMG_1910.JPG?dc=4675572973896371812" BORDER="0"><p>... and actually JRL, my wife participated in a fund raiser for the fight against Womens Breast Cancer in support of "Warriors in Pink" today. Since I modded your mod, I asked her to donate 25 dollars <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> .
