About 2 months ago I was driving up a road with my friend in his car behind me, and another car in front of me. It was at night, and I knew that the road we where on had just been worked on, but they have been working on it for like 6 months, and the signs where down. So I figured they where done. Boy was I wrong. So there we are doing like 50mph maybe a little more, and *BAM*. My hand was on the shifter, but just sitting there. The shifter came out of 3rd, and then went back in. I was like WTF was that!! My friend jumps on the 2 way radio and says "HOLY SHIT!, A WHOLE BUNCH OF SPARKS JUST FLEW OUT FROM YOUR CAR!!" So apparently I had hit a man-hole, a fucking huge man-hole at that. I went up to a gas station pulled over but didnt see any damage with the flashlight. I didnt hear anything strange either so I figured it was ok. Well silly me I was wrong, again. So when I got it on the jackstands the other day for what we thought was a heatshield lose, we had seen the damage. Two large chunks are missing from my header, and scratches all along the whole fucking catback. The whole cat-back had to be close to an inch and a half pushed back from what it should be. So I guess the moral of the story is...DONT LOWER YOUR CAR!!!, or at least not with Tokico HP's and H&R Sportlines. It is way lower than what they said it would be. Here are some pics of the damage.....

I must say though, those damn DC headers are strong, and for sale! :grin: The header pipe on the right is the deepest by far. When I thouched it, it felt that a little bit of pressure will put a whole in it! I am really, really suprised I dont have an exhaust leak from this one. When I put it on the jack stands again I'll try to get some better pics. It's a good thing I'm going turbo! :grin:

Sue the town or city you were in... You can get money out of it for your turbo...

I wouldn't sue cause I'm not into that, but you should think about that...

They will pay for it. My friend had that happen to him in his lowered mini truck. Worked out kinda nice.

" I didnt hear anything strange either so I figured it was ok. "

Umm Yeah, if you're missing a CHUNK of the header, and the exhaust is an inche from where it is supposed to be wouldn't you hear the new sound? Like when you hear your car w/out an exhaust?

You must be confused...IT WAS AT NIGHT!!! I couldnt see anything wrong with it. There is not a hole in the header pipe. There are 2 chunks missing, no HOLES! So I wouldnt hear a differant sound would I?

Im not gonna bother with the township/city. It happened to long ago, and there is no way for me to prove that there where no signs up that night. I know they have signs up now, and thats all that matters, so no one else hits it. I already have my turbo kit, all I am waiting on is some parts then it is ready to go on. My only real loss now is that I had a buyer for the header and now I wont be able to sell it.
