Congrats on the blower making it to your place without incident, and it's about time you started a journal!!!

You're the only one in the bay that I know of with a re-done interior and your car is going to be making a ton of power soon. Can't wait to see the final product Sunday. =)

Here are some issues we ran into today while installing the JBA exhaust. Their 3" exhaust has a 2.5" opening. This is a terrible design. Yes I said terrible. I understand they would do that to mate up to the stock cats and mid pipes but since we are using their 3" catted mid pipes it simply creates a restriction.



We cut that step down pipe out and will be tig welding a new 3" piece on.



Other than that the headers fit nicely. More updates coming later on Josh's Camaro!

What's up with companies doing that when they sell 3" to 3" midpipes.../facepalm.

That picture looks very familiar Luke. At least it's a matter of practice for you guys.

Josh,

Stopped in at Blu808 and saw your car up on the lift, plus the rest of the goodies waiting to get installed (minus the cam, bummer on the wait).

Your in great hands with the guys at Blu808! They were tweaking the exhaust when I was there, making it fit just right. (I was present at picture above). Every time I go by the shop, I am reminded that there are still true craftsmen out there! Great work Luke and Conrad!

Look forward to seeing everything all wrapped up!

Jason

so clean...Great job Luke. You guys do that on a regular basis though, so it's nothing new.
