This package typically makes 415RWHP on our Dyno. Best bang for the buck.

Sounds good even with the rest of the stock exhaust.
I agree.

I have this set up and I love it. People really dont give the stock exhaust the credit it deserves. Your going to get more HP gain from switching out long tube headers then you will by adding a catback.

no cats are better, but if you get pulled over and the cop looks under the car and sees no cats... you get a ticket and they will question you where you got your inspection.

best to get the high flow cats to keep the car's sound level down and the cops off your radar.

Thanks for the recommendation.

Please feel free to give us a call and I would be more than happy to go over any/all of your questions with you.

BTW if I could only do one basic mod to any of these cars, it would start with LT headers. In themselves they are worth what all the other bolts on are worth combined. And there arn't any cons. (Except for bolt ons that involve boost )

Thanks

only if the cats were the direct cause of the failure.

if you have a broken tail light, they can't void your warranty because you changed your cats!

if they try, just quote the Magnusson-Moss Warranty Act!


i went in for an oil cooler leak, i have long tube headers and cats which are installed right next to this oil cooler.

the dealership said it might not be covered under warranty because i have headers.

i told them, i brought the car in because the shop that installed the headers saw the leak and informed me about it BEFORE they installed them, and i gave them the number of the shop for them to call and ask for themselves.

the dealership then said, well its still an aftermarket part and changing anything voids the warranty.

i stated, "well the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act of 1975 protects my rights and states a warranty can only be voided due to an aftermarket part if and only if it was the direct cause of the failure. i have clearly proved to you the leak began long before i installed the headers, and the headers are not anywhere near touching the oil cooler, nor can the heat from them have any effect on the gasket that is leaking."

they fixed the problem at no cost to me, and i started visiting a different dealership thereafter.

Key word you mentioned there iom "cause it's fun". Remember that and add the mods one at a time and experience them thoroughly. You may find after adding some mods you change your whole perspective on what you want to do next. Get to know the people at your local track as well, they enjoy what you are doing and can help you with not making expensive mistakes. I started with a K@N cold air intake and and a borlas "S" type exhaust and have stopped there for now because I love what it has done to my car so far.

Peace
