Love the larger/smaller look. You're not selling the Stromungs by change?

I don't feel any vibrations really. Just some drone when getting on the gas in a higher gear at low rpm. I'm going to put some dynomat soundproofing in the truck under the carpeting and call it a day. The stromung is an awesome daily exhaust, but since I only drive my car on weekends and some afternoons, I wanted something louder

best looking, best sounding exhaust IMO, I have a set on mine and I have more people comment on how nice they look and how good they sound. They are awesome.

may just be the angle, but i would say adjust them up a little bit. Just a little bit closer to the bumper, as always terrific picture!

If you do decide to part with your Stromungs, I'm very interested (and in Ontario too).

yew they replace the hangers. I bought a set of Re diablos in the forum and the seller included the hangers. I installed them at first without the hangers to test the difference and they do reduce the vibrations at 1-2.5 revs. I am still going to instal some dynamat or something similar in the trunk to reduce the drone a little more.

i have been thinking about the same thing. The Stromungs definitely sound better than stock, but a little more aggressiveness might be what the doctor ordered.
