My catback has no mufflers only resonator. And yes I'm catted DP. I guess the next move is maybe a resonator delete on the aftermarket catback..hope it doesn't sound ugly . If so can it be welded back on without any further issues ?

Do you have smog in Maryland? If not just get a catless downpipe.

Looking into the Enkei Performance PDC wheels, but they're 8" instead of my 7.5" Detroits. Is it that much of a different and would they rub more? Also would I still be able to put a 225 Michelin PSS on a 8" tire or would it be stretched?

They will fit perfectly fine and should never rub. That is the recommend no headache wheel set up for these cars. 225 will fit great on them.

So I was changing my oil the other day and decided I should probably check the timing chain tensioner. I have a 2013, so I assume I would have the updated one but something like this I donít exactly want to assume.

After watching the humble mechanic video on it he recommends getting a new plug after you pry your old one off in case you warp the cover and could develop oil leaks. Is this something that should be ordered, or is it a very remote chance of happening?? Iíd happily order one, just want to know if itís something everyone usually does.

It depends on the offset too, btw

IIRC you don't need to take the timing cover off the mechanism to check what revision you are... I know Jay745 could clarify as he's done a ton of them in Chicago.

I would just replace the plug it's super cheap, I replaced mine when I checked.
