Not around here they don't. Seems to vary from state to state. The ONLY place to get it around here is at Summit racing.

well a little update on what i might be doing as far as exhaust goes for now

i was searching some old posts and came upon this one

viewtopic.php?t=30465

check out posts 8,17,25.
it sounds good. not too loud but just good enough for what i want.

the actual Magnaflow website wants like $164 or around there without shipping. found that same muffler on ebay for $94 shipped.

oo one question. my RT already has a resonator in the midsection pipe. if i cut out the resonator adding regular exhaust piping in its place along with the Magnaflow muffler does anyone suspect that itll be louder with some raspyness sounding.

o yeah and taillights will go on tomorrow. ill post some pics after washing and detailing her.

I personally wouldn't cut out the resonator on a 2.0 that would make it sound tinny.

I Have no idea. It was half the price of Niteshades but ive never used it. I wana try it out someday but meh.

If you cant fine the VHT go with the Rusto or find a hobby store and Find this>>> Pactra RC tint


Only bad shit bout the Pactra stuff is that it fades BUT a good clear should keep that from happening

Tinny = Sounds like tin, sounds like shit, sounds too raspy and whiny. Resonators are there to make a better sound.....if there is nothing for the air to resonate through.....it sounds like ass on an NA car. Actually sounds like ass on an SRT too. I've heard a few who deleted their stock resonators....oh it was terrible.

If its like the one posted on the red car in that link. I say go for it.

As for those tinted tails...yeah. Looks like he used black spray paint. :lol:

I wouldn't mess with them until it warms up. I personally have some things I want to paint, but I can't do to it being cold out. Ideal temp would be atleast 70 I would guess..
