Don't think I've seen this one here and thought I'd share. I did it this evening and it's just like snakeshack says in the first post. I will say that being a machinist by trade and having access to a shop is key. Building a drill guide for the 10-32's is a plus as the drill will want to drift off location without it, even if you centerpunch first. The holesaw operation is a PITA as described and you must use a guide for the 1/4" pilot. I made one to fit from a small length of bar stock.

I was ready to buy an aftermarket slip on until I met a fellow with another '08 that had a Jardine....too loud for me. This mod gives a subtle but not loud exhaust note, just right for me. There seems to be a small gain in power in the upper rev area. Very nice, cheap mod.
