: Yes I do have limited slip but I thought all the 6 speeds did, Yours didn't? I find that my 540 handles GREAT in the TIGHT twisties (55 in 25 type) What do you mean "Pop"? Spin the tires and get sideways?
: FWIW I was told that only 1200 540 6speeds were imported in 95. I don't know if that's correct or not.
: How do you like your flowmaster??

My car did not have a LSD and when I first had it I would get this TERRIBLE wheel hop when accelerating very hard from a stop. The LSD lets me burn up BOTH tires with little hop.

Yes, by "pop" I mean by pressing the gas hard it is easy to snap the car sideways. It almost got me into trouble several times before I learned to control it.

What I mean about the twisties comment is that if you are careless and get too far into the gas and "go sideways" in a turn.

The flowmaster sounds great but it's LOUD. It's a nice rumble when cruising, but when you hammer the gas and the revs get over 4k it sounds like a small (well maybe tiny) block v8 should at full song.
