Ha Ha..LOL...!!! I knew that would attract some attention...NO... I have my car ready for all my modifications I'm going to do, and I just sprayed the exhaust couplings with some BP Blaster. Attached is a couple of pics of all the stuff i will add and here is a list with links, just in case some of you new guys want to do the same.

The exhaust looks good. Will be waiting to see the video of the exhaust. Can you also give some feedback after you have it done on how loud it is? I am looking for an exhaust but getting pullover is no fun.

Btw do you have the link for red trim from ebay site?

I don't like worm

Why the hose clamps?
Gear clamps on silicon hoses...in the long run they will cut into the hose, or for sure back off. I've had it happen on my GTO...these t-bar clamps have bands made for silicon with a spring loaded tension fastener:laugh: ..

along with the above noted improvements, the t-bolt clamps have a longer lifespan they can be removed many times before they get loose. also without the perforations for the screw to tighten the band, they apply an equal amount of pressure around the clamping surface, requiring less torque to secure the coupling (less pinching and tearing). aircraft have been using these clamps for a long time now, and as a former aircraft mechanic, I cannot remember anywhere these were not used..... failures in aviation usually end with catastrophic effects... just my $ 0.02

T-bolt clamps are unnecessary for the intake hose. The worm gear clamps that ship with the Eurocompulsion intakes are slicone protected clamps that do not expose the silicone to the perforations.
