The coaxial: my best guess is for satellite radio !

Flex pipe is probably coming apart.
Time for aftermarket Downpipe!

I would only recommend obx if your willing to put time and effort getting it to fit properly. Some people had issues with it not being made correctly( myself included). But there is a catted one on eBay for 300$. Otherwise if you have the coin ipd is good and so is phuzzymotorsports Downpipe. Though some question the weld job....

I pass inspection be cause I use a 90 degree o2 spacer that moves the o2 away from the hot unburnt gasses.

Is there any differences between the obx and the stock down pipe besides not have a cat?

obx=3in pipe
stock=2.5in

There is more flow, faster boost coming on, MORE NOISE! :)
Oo ok, i didnt realize the obx was larger than stock.. Ill definitely have to look into that..
For $300 its a good deal

Ok so my car just stopped on me while i was driving.
I filled up the car with gas earlier today and turned it on about 20min ago and the car all of a sudden stopped.
I would give it gas and the rpm's wouldnt go up nor would the speedometer..
Getting it towed right now as im typing this.
My guess could be the gas station i went to had crappy gas or my fuel pump just sh*t the bed.
Any advice would be helpful!

so my mechanic called me up and told me it was the fuel pump..
luckily the car still has 30day warranty so the used car dealership "should" cover that

Welcome!

Sorry to hear about your recent trouble, BUT as you said, there's a 30 day warranty so hopefully this will be covered, in which case you're lucky it happened in the first 30 days :D

You can't go wrong with black tint on a black car. Looks good!
