After 4 years and 5200 miles made first modification to K078. Found exhaust on Ebay at great price 18 months ago and finally pulled the trigger thanks to my great GT buddy @wmjim and his mechanical expertise. Fairly easy install but something I would not have attempted on my own. Significant weight difference and sounds slightly louder and most of you know the sound difference from stock. Also, thanks to @thegtguy for advice on the race ramps and @italianjoe for a Sunday text with an answer on backup camera!

Hi Gary,

Great project. Is that the optional Ti exhaust or the Mk 2 exhaust from Jason?

Which model Race Ramps did you go with?

Thanks,

Bruce

Good job!

I'm sure you will be happy with the results.

A lot easier after they made it standard!

It is the optional oem Ti and these race Ramps worked great did not come close to the front and plenty of room to work

72" RACE RAMPS – 6.8 INITIAL TO 10.8 FINAL DEGREE APPROACH ANGLE​

The rear diffuser is for sure not as simple as the 05-06, but after a couple of times, its not so bad.

Well done!!!
