Re: TAP Mods for URQ


Watch the fit of the exhaust.  I bought the cat back version some years ago,
and the fit is not great, particularly at the back in that it hangs too low
(also a problem with my Stebro).  It has lasted well however, which makes
sense given that it is stainless.  Once they made the sale the TAP guys were
distinctly unhelpful.
