Hell yea I love the sound...just took a closer look and I'm gonna have to do the same thing with my steering issue, I think...I thought my steering felt different, turns out it's the whole rubber piece rubbing, not just the metal nub...

I moved the outer boot and that was good enough... you may just want to dimple the header.... won't change performance.

Some of the cars have fitment issues because the engine can be too much to one side by about a half inch.

yeah...if it was a half inch to the passenger side, everything would be fine there...but below, the passenger side was the harder install, lol...

Glad to help. It was a lot easier with a lift than in my driveway on ramps. I love the look of the tri-y's. looking forward to hearing it one time WOT and comparing to my kooks. I will say my kooks did fit slightly better but that could have been my car vs yours. Get that steering boot figured out so we can go open them up. Lol

hit the headers with a hammer a few times and be done with it... or undo your motor mounts and try to slide it over...

Way too much money for me to beat with a hammer. Sorry but for that much dough, I shouldn't have to beat anything.

well, not sure if tapping it with a hammer or just re-seating the steering made it clear, but it's no longer touching...there was no room to really swing my little ball-peen, so i'm leaning towards the re-seating.
so here's a vid to celebrate!

Sounds good! I hope you get all the little issues straightened out with it.

thanks...yeah, i'm probably going to have to go back to the steering issue, as it's only just clearing it...don't want to burn up that rubber.
i'll try to dyno tune next month, and then everything will be fine

Just spoke with zack at pfadt. He said on their initial tests with a zl1 they had the same issue, but the rubber lasted through a whole day of heavy running with no issues. So, I've got some peace of mind now

I can't confirm it firsthand since I have to replace the harness going into the sensor, but I know several other people have used it and have had no problems yet. Damaged my harness (not the sensor like i initially thought) when I drilled the cupholder to route my wires, so I've been driving without HSA, stabilitrack, traction control, etc...they're all tied into it.

well, after reading about several other pfadt header installs, and some more emails from pfadt, it seems that my car is just the odd one out. best solution? shift my subframe a little to get it further from the steering shaft...then go get an alignment before i tear the crap out of my tires. don't really have the money to spare for it right now tho, so that'll go in the near-future. right now it looks like the rubber is still holding up, and i just don't drive it very much, and literally can't drive it very far...and i just remembered it's about time to check it for exhaust leaks/re-torque...so much to do...
also still waiting on the new connector for my yaw sensor...my dad made some for me, but then they went on vacation, lol...

If anybody's got advice on opening the foglights I'd appreciate it
the don't come apart with heat you actually have to cut them open.

Thanks! I'm enjoying it Have you done anything besides the SS badges yet?

Since I'm here, might as well update - I received orders to Mayport, FL last week. Reporting in May next year. So, I guess I don't have to worry about winter tires/wheels for another few years But i need to start looking into how much it'll cost to ship one of my cars there...it might be better if i sell off the cavalier out here. I'm sure I could get a better price for it in Hawaii...

Also, I started on my vent covers last night...gonna drill and paint them soon, this is just a test fit. Pretty good fit, my long edges could be a little straighter, but good enough for part-time duty
