Yes I ordered them from Josh. Me and another New England member are still waiting for cats and o2 extensions. Think you could stop by there and see what's going on? I ordered at the end of January!

Thanks Joe.
howmuch did jet hot cost you?

Being that Josh is an hour away... probably wont be 'dropping in'... I have called him a couple times, and he says they are waiting for more cores to build them. He said next batch should be in "a good week and a half" from last I called, which was one week ago.

That sounds great. Of course it will need to be a dry sunny day. I will be talking to Ted as the day gets closer to check availability.

I just checked with Ted for the 16th, no problem but did you know he is on vacation that week? I am sure his team is more than capable, but I did want to meet the legend himself.

Some new stuff, billet aluminum chrome plated oil cap. The plan is to try to use it without the plastic filler tube but some measurements and modificacations will have to be made to the valve cover.

It also has this metal LS3 6.2L plate that can be added. Protective plastic is still on it.



My catted mid pipes finally arrived, I was very impressed with the quality of the welding, someone took their time.



Passenger side valve cover is almost done, just needs some QC and touch ups. Plus a surprise detail to be added soon. (No, not the oil fill cap).

That's cool, I would but he tunes mine as well as 4 wheel aligned when I did my cam. Right now its at a shop waiting for Grill, Blade Spoiler, Radiator Shroud and bowtie install. I don't expect it back until the week of the 8th. I am travelling a lot for the next 2 weeks so brought it up there to be done while I was away. Maybe I will see you at the Slowhawk Dyno day.
