Car turned off while rolling?

I was driving back to school, cruising at about 80mph when all of a sudden my car shut down and all I saw was the key light going on and off... downshifted from 5th to 4th and the car turned back on. I kept going and it did the same thing but this time when downshifting it did not turn back on. Once pulled over I checked everything but nothing seemed wrong so I tuned it back on and headed on my way. It never happened again but it could. Anyone know what might have happened/ what is wrong?

You need to fight that ticket. That exhaust is within the allowed decibel range. I have a Greddy too..

Re: Car turned off while rolling?

My resonators are dead and I don't want to deal with it. Need new tires so I'm getting a stock cat back, selling my Greddy to my buddy so I can buy the tires.
I don't mind to be honest, I got that Greddy Evo 2 catback for cheap :D

6K HID with slim ballasts... It's not so bright, the picture just has glare because it was taken from my phone haha.

I'm picking up a stock cat back off my buddy this week, thanks though!
