[DML] Re: Port and Polish



Thanks for the review!  I am a little disappointed that you lost 
some low end tourque, but the car is a Grand Tourer, and benefits 
from midrange power.  I think I'll hold off for a bit because if 
anything, I want more low end power.  It doesn't help matters that 
my other car is a 69 charger with a 440 six pack.  It has like 400+ 
lb/ft of tourque!  My little D' engine just can't compare.  

I did take it to the exhaust shop today for some repairs.  Previous 
Owner backed into a curb and broke some stuff.  Local shop was 
excited to work on it and will do custom fab and new, stainless tips 
for $120!

Have fun with the DMCH system and keep us posted as it "settles in"
