The parts we were waiting on came back from the machine shop and we were able to complete the exhaust installation. The headers sound great with the cat-back; angry outside of the car while reasonable inside the cabin. The piping is 2.5″ through and everything is connected with v-band clamps.

Last weekend I paid Thunderhill Raceway a visit with the Audi Club of Golden Gate…wow, what an awesome track! Since my car wasn’t ready, I decided to rent a Spec Miata for the weekend. and this was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I was able to refine my braking and vehicle control techniques over the two days at the track. The first day was split 50/50 with the first half was braking and vehicle dynamics mixed up with on track sessions; the second day was entirely track time.
Honestly, I can say I’ve learned more with seat time in the Miata than I would have in my S4.
My instructor and I.
This was my second session on the track with a Civic spinning out in front of me.
This was my third session on the first day.
Here is my third session on the second day. I shot this video with my 7D and my SD GoPro.
