I also changed out my Magnaflow Competition Series resonator with the Summit racing X pipe about a week ago. While there is some raspyness because I switched to an x pipe, the exhaust note is killer when cruising at low speeds, and at idle. I can't wait to hear how the car sounds with the cam :

You have cutouts? Or are you talking about mine? Because I took mine off and sold them lol. I loved having them, but they had a slight leak while they were closed, and I tried 3 different ways to seal them up, all to no avail. So I took them off and sold them, then ended up going with a magnaflow comp series and added the x pipe.

Oh I was talking about yours. Ive heard of a lot of people having leaks. Sucks, but you cant cut corners. I wouldnt be able to live with the leak either.

I'll let you know how that new setup sounds once my headers and cam get installed in November. I'm expecting it will be just a tad louder lol.

You changed your exhaust again? Or are you talking about your current setup? Looks like we are all about to get a cam put in around the same time frame, should be interesting and exciting to say the least.

Yea, we do. It just took me 4 different exhaust configurations to finally figure out how I wanted my car to sound, lol.

I don't have any pictures for this update...but I am too excited to not post about it. Ordered my PRC 255cc LS3 6 bolt cylinder heads today from Texas Speed and Performance. They only had one set left in stock, and as soon as they told me that, I pulled the trigger. It seems like I keep adding parts to my setup, but I am VERY close to having everything lol. At this point now, the only things I am missing are :

GM Head gaskets
ARP Head bolts
Joe Gibbs LS30

I may run into issues with my pushrod length (7.400 manley Chromoly) with the mill job on the heads, but that's no major issue as it can be resolved during the install. More to follow when I get my heads in the mail.

Thanks brother, I appreciate it! Still have a long way to go though. My goal after the Cam/heads swap is to be able to run low 11's all motor on a 18'' D/R. I still need some more suspension mods, but it's all a work in progress. I wish I could sell these two sets of wheels and tires I have laying in my storage unit, then everything would be great! lol

TEASER PHOTO

These showed up earlier this week, but I figure I would add them to my build thread:

PRC 255cc LS3 6 bolt cylinder heads (milled to 66cc chambers)
I just purchased an LS3 Intake Manifold from a member on the forums, which I should receive later in the week, and then it will be sent off to get ported by Lethal Racing.
