Yelojkt's borla exhaust. I bought this exhaust off the Borla website, it is 2.25" stainless steel (unpolished). The mounting points on the exhaust are all 1/2" ss rod, TIG welded. If you know who Borla made this cat-back system for please let me know. I like the quality of the system and would like to buy a downpipe from the same company at a later date.

Got some R-Line Monster Mats from Steven VW for The Tulsa VW Club show. Placed 2nd in the daily driver class. Sorry they are so dirty did'nt get a chance to clean them up before shooting.

Wow, YeloJkt's so smooth & clean looking. The shaved hood & front clip make that bug just SHINE. Really great work you've got goin' there man.

Dunno on the exhaust, but I know techtonic's sells borla mufflers on their systems. I don't think borla does downpipes though.

Hey that is a great pic of the beetle. I was so excited that all 4 of the VW's from Wichita placed at Tulsa. Hey Yelojkt... where did you find your front clip? I think I am going to change the front and rear on Phoebe. Then it's on to engine work.... 2.0 TURBO!!!!!!!:bowdown:

Thanks MentalVdub. Hey Phoebe you can pick-up that front end at 'sole designs. 2.0L Turbo would be really cool. I have a secret that I can't wait to show you guys maybe Sunday if all works out.

Here is a cool shot of Yelojkt when he was first introduced to the guys and gals of Team Foolie. This picture was shot by the club photographer. He really has an eye for photography. This was on the roof of a parking garage were we GTG on the last Sunday of the month. He snaped a few shots and then climbed up on the wall to get this shot. I likes it.:)
