well thank you guys for telling me to look into getting an 04 redline. they are offering 4k off + and addition 1k off from that smart button contest (played, didn't win :( ) so this week, as long as insurance isn't too much more than what i'm paying now, i will be owning a 2004 Silver Redline. All they have on the lot in 04s in silver and the only way i can get $5k off is if i buy one from one of their dealerships. not my first choice in color but its still sexy, right silver guys? I got to drive it for a half hour without the salesman and that car can fly. i really wanted the competition package but with the rumor of it being delayed and them offering this much off i can't resist. i can add a boost gauge and an lsd later since my car payments will be cheaper and i can blow more money on this machine.

so 1 or 2 questions.

1. i noticed backfiring from the exhaust when coming to an stop. normal?

um thats all i can think of now. vito, what time are you calling in the order for the intakes? ill be calling my insurance company first thing monday to see what its gonna cost me and then assuming its not thru the roof i'll paypal you money for the intake.

thanks guys!

I like my silver a lot too. I'm my new baby :) On the backfiring, I've been noticing that if I'm hammering it through a couple gears, then I let off the gas so the rpms drop back down to around 2-3k. This is when I hear popping from backfiring. I'm hoping this is normal, I like that popping sound. SRT4s do it, GTOs have it if you rev it up and let the RPMs drop back down. They were tuned to do that ;)

always nice to see another Central Pa guy around. We'll have to hook up some night. So far I've counted 4 silver RL's in the area and 2 black (Xau and XtremeSC2).

I'm in Pittsburgh but am planning a trip to King of Prussia to visit my brother in a few weeks. It seems like there are quite a few of you guys in Central PA. I'll have to let everyone know when I end up coming out and see if there is anything going on that weekend.

I never see any other RL's in Pittsburgh. I saw my first one last week.

Well, I am rather partial to silver :) , but I think on the ION the silver looks sleek.
