Joe, MTI said they would charge me 100-200 bucks to put my exhaust on at the gathering...do you think that is fair or should I try to do it myself? I figure you'd know the level of difficulty.
I figure $50-$75 an hour is fair. They could do this job in 30 minutes max. You do the math. I would call it fair if they charged you $100, because it would take you a long time. It isn't hard, but if it has been put on a car already, then the tubes where the clamps went will need to be stretched back out. Got a tool for that? See what I mean?

Where did you have the car painted? I tried like hell to get these local hacks here to disassemble my car to get what I wanted to no avail. Settled for stripes and they still screwed that up. Has since been fixed by Gary in Florida. But I'd like to go with my original idea if I could find a decent painter and Atlanta's not a big stretch to get to.

I saw your paint at Pony Wars and it turned out great!

Oh, and any progress on the light mod?

4RD H8R works for Performance Auto Collision. They do a lot of high-end repair work on porsches and such. They aren't cheap...but obviously you are done looking for cheap. Neal was the real reason why it turned out as good as it did. He kept on them making sure it was as perfect as could be.

I need to get back to the lighting mod, but been a little busy.

Thanks. And I like their motto on their site; "The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of a low price is forgotten" ....so true

Staying with the stock cam for now. Too much work to convert the L99 to an LS3. I also think this will have no problem getting me to 11.0. I don't want to go lower than that...cause I don't want to go with a cage.

Ah true!

I'll probably just have them do it.

Just remembered I have video of you demo run. The loud exhaust shut down the camera, but I see how much it caught. I'll check it out tonight.

Joe - Don 't think I've told you, but your build has been inspiring. I admire the ability you have to work on your car yourself. I know you've enjoyed it and you have done a great job!

If you got something, cool. If not, don't worry.

I will be running cats until I get ready to head to the track, then I'll swap them out. I got both straight pipes as well as cats. I hate the smell without cats, plus I'm hoping it will quiet the pipes down a little. What about you?

I'm running HF/cats now and will probably continue to run them. However, I believe one of them is on its way out now.. I'm gonna have them checked friday.. I'll never hit the 600 hp benchmark so I will keep them.. lol Time will tell.
