HAHAHAHA..... no not really, but I do miss the hell out of it when I've got some hippie tree hugger hybrid next to me. I enjoy it more being somewhat quiet again. It's still pretty loud but nothing close to what it was. I mean it would rattle you fillings in your teeth! I would like to be able to be obnoxious whenever I wanted again.

Not a simple job.

It's very different to simply swapping auto/manual or vice versa in a vehicle available in both forms.
This has Scotts name written all over it

LOL, I'm not modding an SUV, much less this platform. Maybe if I won the lottery and was bored.

LOL, my vote for his next mod goes to doing the '08+ dash swap, I would be truly impressed if he could pull that off.
