Yeah it should..... You still should have a definite lope to it I would think? I'm going to get some videos today of my car, and make a build thread I guess, even though it's already built haha.

Next summer I plan on doing some bigger things to it

How much (if anything) do they charge for trucking to & from? You can pm me so Le Bon doesn't see if you want.

Well, I had gone up there a few weeks back to get it tuned because we were thinking it would fix my surging issue. Obviously now we know it wasn't in the tune. Ron wanted to make sure I was taken care of so he contacted me and offered to come get the car and dyagnose the problem at no cost. Had the leak not gotten worse making me think there was a lifter issue, I'd have gotten out of it with just the cost of the Header gaskets.

But I decided to do the cam when I thought the lifters were going bad.

Not looking back now.

You can get out of the window, but it's not real easy. My next trailer will have the escape door!

Hehehehe... I just had a thought... what if I tell Bonnie that PQ intentionally used the paper header gasket so he had an excuse to get a cam now...

He said he'd build it this week. Drive it around tuning early next week to make sure it's 100% right and finish tuning it mid next week. I could pick it up next weekend.

I'm pretty small. It was not hard at all.

Sweet. It's great they are taking their time to get everything perfect for you. They are a great business to deal with. When we were looking for my son a car up around ATL, we stopped by their shop and Ron gave us a shop tour and everything. They really are stand up people! I was surprised MTI got mine done so fast. I dropped it off Monday morning and picked it up Friday evening. That shows these people know what they are doing. But Resse did stay really late Thursday getting my car tuned and dynoed, then they put the cut-outs on Friday.

Both businesses are great!

Yikes! 3.2! You must have 93 or higher there?

My "mild" blower cam made a huge difference in exhaust tone/volume. And I have what is considered the "quiet" Magnaflow 3" Comp catback. You have LT's right? Could be some serious rumble/lope there. I had to have most of the lope tuned out of mine as I have to deal with the smog nazi's here and need to pass a visual as well as a sniffer....

And then it was time to upgrade the sound system, for he could not hear the radio over the car...
