Thanks man, i appreciate that. I honestly didnt figure anyone would pay attention to the welds I worked in a welding and machine shop for 3 years in high school doing just about everything, including alot of stainless semi tank repair, some food grade, so it definitely comes in handy now and then.

Well that definitely explains it! I always appreciate a good weld; I've seen way too many people do a terrible job at it which just wrecks the look of a nice finished piece.

Welding is definitely a good thing to know for any mechanic. You never know when you might need it. I have no where near the welding experience that you have but have done enough to be pretty decent at it. About 5 or 6 years ago now me and my Dad went out and bought a mig welder to have in the garage or shop. We don't use it overly often but it's so nice to have when you do need it. It was very handy to have when we put the lift on my truck just to throw a few tack welds on where needed.

I couldnt agree more, welding is a very useful thing to know how to do, it can save you lots of money down the road. I was lucky my dad started me welding when i was young for fixing stuff on the farm and when i got that job it just grew from there. I was certified at one point from everything from pressurized vessels to FAA cert for welding aircraft components, we did alot of manifold repairs for local crop dusters pilots.

A good mig welder is a fantastic tool, if you ever get a chance to work with a TIG dont pass it up it is an even better and more fun skill to have, once you start youll never want to use anything else

I took a welding class and I suckkkkkkkkkkkk

hahaha well I mean, it wasn't bad for just learning how to weld. But damn, come weld a new exhaust for me any time you want to! Cause mine would look no where near that good.

Ya I'd definitely like to try it out. My brother is a very good tig welder, he's done it for work for years. So when we need really nice finished stuff or aluminum to be welded we give it to him and he does it at work. I think one of my Uncles just bought a tig though so I might have to get down to his shop and try it out.

Hey man its just like anything else with out the proper fundamentals its crazy hard but once you learn the basics its not bad at all. It honestly just comes down to preparation if you have good clean metal any one can do it lol

It would def be a good way to kill a lazy sunday I bet just from what I have seen from your build thread and around the forum youd love it. And it does take a long time to be great at it even more so aluminum, im rather out of practice being I have only done it here and there for the past 3 years. It would take me a solid hour of practice before I thought about touching aluminum or magnesium

Well it finally stopped raining long enough for me to grab a few quick videos in the drive tonight, i plan on grabbing some more this weekend of interior and exterior passes but it started rain right after i finished these tonight

So i ended up getting the DMH cut out installed on tuesday

Dave is an incredible guy to work with and i would purchase from him hands down again in the future





And i put on a turn down just so it didnt rattle in cab so bad with it opened up and help protect the cut out



So here is the 18" magnaflow that i had on before the swap at idle with a quick rev.



This is an idle clip of the new 22" magnaflow, (thanks to andrew @ bulys)



Here is a idle clip of with the DMH cut out opened up



And finally here is a quick clip of the transition between open and closed along with a couple little revs



Thanks for watching

Sound great man! Definitely a nice mod to have to open it up when you want some noise and then close it when it's time to just cruise around.
